To most men, shaving is considered to be a really easy task. All they have to do is: grab a razor, pass on their face wherever they see small hair, then wash their face, and tara! The shaving process is over. However, this quick process is not as good for your skin as you think. There are some basic things you need to learn in order to have the perfect shaving experience.

Carmencitta Magazine - Things you don’t know about shaving 1Take your time in what you are doing

Instead of rushing and finishing your shave in 5 minutes, take some time to prep your skin and make it ready for a shave. In fact, the quick shaving process is one of the main reasons why your skin looks and feels bad. The first thing to do before you start, is wash your face. Face cleansers are a good way to soften the protein in the hairs. After that, leave the cleanser on your face for several minutes so that the pores can absorb it. Next, put a shaving cream or gel on your face, this process helps making a one-pass shave possible.

Use a Brush

Do not use your fingers to swipe the shaving cream on your face. Instead, invest your money on a brush and use it to push the cream into the hair and make it much easier to shave.

Reasons Why Men Have Mustache

Mustache and beard normally begin to grow in males during their initial puberty period, and develops in the puberty stage that is between 11 and 21 years of age. Depending on genetic conditions and environment, the process of facial hair growth may vary in individuals. Male facial hair growth is triggered by testosterone, a strong androgenic hormone produced by the testes. The amount of testosterone hormone in a man’s body is responsible for quality of facial hair, normally more testosterone hormone means more facial hair in a man.
Today growing mustache, or beard for that matter, is a personal taste; however, a wide range of customs and religious beliefs, across cultures and countries, have been associated with facial hair since ancient time.

Is It The Trend for Men to Shave their Body?

Is it really a trend why most men nowadays shave their body?
Obviously bikers and swimmers do it for very specific reasons, for wound-healing and aerodynamics. As for gym addicts, it’s purely aesthetic. They shave their arms so they could see more definition. In the fitness world, it’s not as taboo for men to remove body hair. But mainly, they do it for hygienic reasons.
However, in general, the majority of men are not completely shaving- only half of them are.
And, what do women think of the idea? Results showed that more than half of the women like it when guys shave their body.
So for the ones who don’t like it, perhaps they might as well start to accept it.
