I really hate shaving. I usually shave once a week, and hate every second of that torture. One day (or, I should say: “Three days”) I tried shaving every day. That lasted about three days.
So, I read some article that claimed to tell me how to shave. It had all sorts of ideas, but none that I could really implement right off (e.g. “Use a badger hair brush for your shaving cremé.”)
One idea was doable: Shave with the grain, not against it. I tried that this morning. It made the shaving experience less painful and annoying, but it simply doesn’t cut the stubble off. As long as the ladies only pat (pet? caress?) my face in one direction they should be alright, but the other direction is only good for a strong exfoliant.
