Let’s face it. No one really likes shaving. However for both men and women there’s a societal pressure that keeps us running sharp metal blades all over our bodies. But it doesn’t have to be that way! It is possible to unshackle ourselves from this recurring socially implemented torture. In this article we list the four top reasons to stop shaving.
It’s Time Wasting
It’s estimated that the average man spends over 1000 hours of their life shaving. And it’s even worse for women! They can spend almost 2000 hours of their life shaving their legs alone. Nevermind plucking eyebrows, tidying up other bits or even shopping for shaving related products. No wonder people hate shaving so much! What would you do with an extra couple of months of free time?
Anyone who’s bought a razor, disposable or otherwise, knows that shaving isn’t cheap. You could buy yourself a fancy dinner for the cost of the latest multi blade disposable razor technology. Add in shaving creams, preps and post-shave lotions and you’re looking at a bundle of money that could be much more enjoyably spent elsewhere.
It’s Bad For Your Skin
Even the most inveterate shavers will cut themselves on a regular basis. Not only is this bad for your post-shave appearance, it’s also bad for your skin. Nicks and cuts invite infection, irritation and ingrown hairs. Staph and streptococcal infections are not harmless annoyances – they can cause serious problems.
There Are Other Options
It wasn’t that long ago that shaving was the only option to remain smooth and hairless. However, times have changed. There are now other types of hair removal technologies that are not only more efficient, but they’re longer lasting as well. Laser light and bi-polar radio frequencies have been combined to precisely target hair follicles while avoiding skin damage. This also allows the removal of all colours of hair on all shades of skin tone – something not possible with most laser-only hair removal technologies. And you can be hairless for six to twelve weeks – something that could never be achieved even with the latest, most cutting edge razor technology.
