Why Men Should Choose Wet Shaving Over Dry Shaving


- You might cut yourself

- Requires a lot of time

- Not good for wrinkled skin

- Costs a lot in the long run, because you have to buy new disposable razors and shaving gel every month or week.

- You might get razor burns

- Requires water and shaving gel

Now that we have outlined the pros and cons of both shaving methods you can make a conscious decision about which one will best suit you.

Although most electric shavers give skin irritation, there are still some good ones out there; it's just a matter of doing some research online.

Choosing between wet and dry shaving is simple just the technique is a little different. When we talk about wet and dry shaving we are normally talking about men shaving their faces to remove facial whiskers. Wet shaving uses water and shaving cream to help glide the razor across your face while dry shaving is without water and usually uses some type of shaving cream only.

The only dry shaving I have experienced is when I go to the barber shop for a haircut. Towards the end of the haircut the barber usually will go to a little shaving cream machine. He takes from the machine some nice warm thick shaving cream that he applies to my sideburns as well as the back of my neck.

With a single bladed straight razor that looks like it was taken from "Jack the Ripper" he will shave the little left over hair and clean up my sideburns as well as the nape of my neck. I don't know why I still get shivers when I see that straight razor.

When it comes to shaving facial whiskers then a wet shaving technique is recommended. A wet shave will help give a much more comfortable shave. A proper wet shaving technique will give you a close smooth shave without irritation.

It is important to wash your face with a mild soap and warm water to clean away any dirt and oil that collects in your pores and on the whiskers. An after shave is an astringent as well as an antiseptic that soothes the skin and will prevent infection from any cuts from the razor blade.

You can also use the very same technique with an electric shaver like the Panasonic wet dry shavers which let you shave wet or dry. You would use the same technique but with modern technology. These are great for modern man especially since most of us are always in a rush with family and work. A wet dry shaver like a Panasonic wet dry shaver can give almost as close a shave as a blade with less hassle.

In this article you are going to learn about electric shavers vs. razor and shaving cream, which one is better, and you'll also learn the pros and cons of both.

Electric shavers

Electric razors are becoming more popular by the day and more and more men are turning to them rather than razor and shaving cream.

There are different kinds of electric razors these days; there are ones for men and others for women. There are rotary and foil shavers, and there are wet and dry shavers.

Women's shavers tend to be weak and inexpensive compared to men's electrics. The reason why ladies' electrics are inexpensive is because they use cheap and less powerful motors.
