LiveStrong.com featured Dr. Michele S. Green on “Your Go-To Guide for the Best Shave Ever”.
She talks about how “even though women pay more for the same hygienic items as men (thanks, “pink tax”), men’s razors are every bit as good”. Dr. Green recommends razors with five blades, such as Schick Hydro 5 for instance.
As for those ingrown hairs. What causes them? “Coarse or curly hair is more likely to curl under and grow in the wrong direction,” says dermatologist Dr. Michele Green. And the best way to get rid of them? “Apply a warm compress and use a sterile needle or tweezers to get them out,” says Dr. Green, adding that it’s helpful to apply benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid to the affected area a few times a day.
She also offers advice on picking the right shaving gels and when to shave in order to get best results, such as after a steamy shower softens the skin and opens pores. Find out more about getting a clean and comfy shave at – http://www.livestrong.com/slideshow/1011843-goto-guide-shave-ever/
