Q:

How long do disposable razors last?

A:

The amount of time a disposable razor lasts depends on a number of factors, including how often it is used, the type of razor it is and how many blades it has. The average amount of time a three-blade disposable lasts with daily usage is one week.

Some of the newer models of disposable razors are made to last, claiming they will last up to four weeks or longer. If you want to extend the life of your razor, try to dry the blades the best you can with a towel, then put the plastic cap on top of the blade between every usage. This will prevent oxidation that often causes a razor to work inefficiently.

    How do you get the best shave for men?

    A:

    Proper skin preparation and use of a single-blade razor help ensure the best shave for men. Prior to shaving, warm the skin with a shower or hot towel, massage in non-irritating, lubricating shaving gel or cream to both soften and stimulate the hair follicles, and shave with a single-blade razor in the direction of the hair rather than against it. Pat the face rather than rubbing it after shaving.
