Grooming And Shaving Then and Now

As a man, you have to shave an entire lifetime if you want to look your best. I believe I began shaving full time when I was seventeen years old. I remember cutting my face almost every time I shaved. It was horrible. The razors we had back then were really tough on your skin. I also remember if I skipped one day of shaving, I would get ingrown hairs on my face. Ingrown hairs are a horrible thing to deal with, especially on your face. Now I don't have to worry about ingrown hairs because it is much easier for me to shave everyday.

Today, grooming for men is an entire different story. The tools that have been developed to make us look better are incredible. I love the razors of today, they are unbelievable. I can shave everyday without getting one nick on my face. I no longer have to place pieces of toilet paper all over my face to stop the bleeding. I can't imagine what they will come up with for the future of shaving. I just know it will be something even better than what they have for us today. The men of tomorrow have a lot of good things to look forward to.

I honestly believe my generation were guinea pigs for the shaving industry. There is no way companies believed their shaving products in the late 70's and the early 80's were good for our skin. Could you imagine the tests when the men shaved pieces of flesh off their faces. I am thankful today, shaving companies got their acts together. My shaving experience is really easy, I put shaving cream on my face, spend about a minute shaving and wash my face off with water. When I am done, my face is smooth and free from nicks and cuts. Today, shaving has become an art all of us can live with.

Today, companies have all types of products designed for men and their grooming habits. There is a tool for every nook and cranny. If you have problems grooming yourself, you can go to the experts and have it done for you. In my youth, all we had was a barber who was an expert at everything. And remember, we were guinea pigs at a time when shaving was a dangerous thing to deal with.

This is a sponsored post for the Art of Shaving, however, all the 
points and views are my own.
