3 Mistakes Men Make When Shaving Their Face

As a woman, I can tell you how much we appreciate a clean shaved face. Probably as much as the men in our lives appreciate when the winter’s over and we tend to the jungle on our legs. In fact, I think everyone pretty much appreciates that one.


I am not even going to pretend that I know anything about shaving your face. Why? Well for starters, I am not a man. And second, I don’t shave my face. Duh right?

Instead, I went right to my husband for the skinny on shaving. What has he learned after shaving his face for a good portion of his adult life. In fact, I would even take a guess at it becomes second nature. But, just like women, I bet you are doing a thing or two wrong when to comes to shaving your face.

3 Mistakes Men Make Shaving

Dry Shaving

I think this is a mistake for anyone — both men and women. Dry shaving is just a bad, bad idea. Not only is it bad for your face (or legs) but it’s bad for your razor. Dry shaving can dull your razors which means you will find yourself switching out your blades more often. Also? You don’t want to have razor burn when your loved one comes in for a snuggle.


So the next time you are grabbing your razors at the store, grab some shaving cream as well! You’re welcome.

Skipping the Moisturizer

Moisturizer is not just for your girl. You need it too! If you shave daily, then your face is losing a lot of moisture. And no one wants dry, flakey skin, right? Apply moisturizer immediately after your shave to lock in moisture. Look for a moisturizer that has SPF! Not only will your skin be nice and smooth but it will also be protected from the sun.

Using Aftershave

Do yourself a favor and skip the post-shave burn of aftershave. Instead, use a gel. Many aftershaves contain alcohol, which is great as a disinfectant, will leave your face noticeably red and sting. Instead opt for a soothing after-shave gel.
