So a lot of posts on this site, and even my dermatologist recommended I switch to an electric shaver to help prevent Ingrown hairs.
The ingrowns weren’t really a problem with a blade so long as I stayed with-the-grain. Unfortunately, this meant I looked perpetually scruffy…and for my job, that was unacceptable.
Anyway, I took your advice and bought a cool-skin Norelco. and I just shaved with it for my first time.
The shave was pleasant, and the little shaving lotion it pumps out is a nice touch.
However, I found that it cuts MUCH closer than I ever would with a blade. It literally looks like I dragged a blade against the grain on my face…it’s incredibly smooth to the touch.
This SOUNDS like a good thing, but I’m totally afraid that I’m going to wake up with a faceful of ingrowns tomorrow.
my question is…has anyone had their ingrowns/razor burn WORSEN because of an electric shaver?
