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 pluck your own eyebrows?

    A:

    Starting with a freshly cleansed face, brush the brows to make sure they lay down. Pluck one hair at a time from the side closest to the nose, concentrating on stray or extra-long hairs first. Then, go back and start plucking the bottom row where you want the brow to arch. From there, pluck the top into a smooth line. Hold the brow firmly in place as you pull.
