Old Fashioned Shaving?
Howdy all!! The weather is slowly warming up here and the sun is peeking out from behind the clouds today. I always get happy when the sun is shining and it is warmer than 30:) Today I have a couple things to let you all know about but for this one I want to talk about shaving. We all shave, right? We all have razors, shaving cream or gel, and if we are really good about it, we have shaving kits. But, have you ever thought about shaving the old fashioned way? I mean with a straight razor, lather and aftershave? Not those new fangled electric razors or even the nice ones with the gel strips. I am talking like back when they used to travel in wagon trains:) Just kidding!! But I am talking about a lot different than we do today.
The funny thing is my younger brother likes to shave the regular way. An electric razor and shaving cream. Of course you have to add the aftershave as well:) But he did try it once the old way. I have to say, he didn't care for it. I think it was more the time than anything and if he were to do it all the time he would probably get faster at it. He also wasn't real keen on the blade. I think it scared him a bit to have the open razor blade there. But I do know people who shave like this all the time. They enjoy the feel of being old fashioned and going back to more restful, laid back times. Personally, I much more prefer the new razors and the ease of shaving without an open blade. But hey, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and preference of doing things. Below are some tips for shaving that work with either the new razors or the old fashioned kind.
1.Use Warm Water.
I have actually heard of people using cold water and they said it helped with waking up. But definitely not for shaving. Warmer water helps the hairs become pliable and easier to shave, along with making your face feel good.
My brothers are very adamant on this issue. Don't leave the bathroom without applying aftershave. Gives you a nice tingle, helps you smell good and also moisturizes your face. At least that is what they say:) I wouldn't know.
