Weeeel, I doubt you are the only who wishes to never shave again. Is that strange? I don’t think so, shaving is tedious and sometimes painful.
It doesn’t have to be so nasty though and here is why:
One could say however that at least “some shadow” on a guy is sexy or appealing because it is masculine yeah babee
Having a completely hairless face as a man if you are in your mid 20s on up may give a more feminine look.
Lets face it, it is typical that men have hair on their face to “some degree” and typically a hairless face is something you see almost exclusively on women, not men. Having absolutely no hair on your face may result in a subtle baby faced/feminine appearance. As long as you don’t mind that possible affect, then go for it, just be aware though.
I also think that as a society, the message to men is shave as close as you possibly can and to do it as an everyday thing. I think Gilette and others make men suffer more rather than really helping them
So, don’t shave so close A lot of guys think the purpose of shaving is to appear as though one doesn’t have hair, even though men do have hair. I don’t think that is a healthy way to look at it. Shaving should be about having a “kept” looking face, not necessarily a hairless one.
Next time you shave don’t try so hard! relax, don’t scrape the razor accross your face as though you are trying to cut a field of wheat before sundown
Another tip, shave after your shower. Once you have showered this softens up the facial hair. Shave every other day, use a good shaving cream, forget about disposable razors - they suck and rinse with warm(not hot) water.
Alot of guys would also benefit from using a moisturizer after shaving, they often don’t bother or think it is too feminine to do
A really soothing lotion is “Nivea extra enriched lotion” it is a little oily(but soothing) so if you try it then use it very very sparingly. Put it on your face only where you have shaved, rub it in gently. Tendskin is also another soothing product out there but I dont’ know much about it.
Sorry to have rambled once again, but I think a lot of guys would have an easier time with their facial hair if they just changed their attitude and approach towards it. Give that new tude a try and if you don’t like it or it doesn’t work, then teh laser will still be an option later.
P.S. the next time your mother bugs you to shave tell her in a laughing way that you are just livin up to your sexy image. Use that as your response each time and she’ll stop bugging you about it gauranteed.
