Shaving 101

Girls all over the world are asked what is the most attractive feature about boys. Some say looks, most say money, but the one feature that all girls can’t resist is a clean close shave. Shaving is an art to perfect as there are several methods and results. When your facial hair starts to grow, you have to make a big decision to the way you want to shave because it will influence the way you look.


Electric vs Blade

The blade cut is far more superior over the electric cut in achieving the clean close shave. It scrapes dead skin cells off your face and the blade trims the hair at an angle, which leaves almost no trace of the hair once you shave. The electric razor cuts the hair flat and leaves the hair cut like a tree stump, so your face will have more visible traces of hair after you shave.

If you choose the blade to shave, you have to learn how to use it. There are many factors that will make a clean close shave smoother and more comfortable, so follow these tips:


  • Lather up your whiskers nice and wet so they cut easier
  • Use warm water and not hot water or your skin will become puffy
  • Using shaving cream or gels and not soap which dries the skin and dulls the blade
  • Rinse your face with cool water
  • Shave in the direction of your hair growth before you shave against it

There are advantages to using the electric razor. It’s quicker and doesn’t have much mess. It’s also safer from getting nicks and cuts on your face. Here’s some tips for shaving with the electric razor:


  • Shave with your face dry
  • Don’t press hard
  • Clean the razor every time you use it
  • Replace the blades every year

Razor burn is an actual rash that you can get from either the blade or electric cut. Just make sure to not press to hard when you’re shaving. Your facial skin is one of the most sensitive areas of your body and it can become irritated very easily if you don’t take care of it.

If you're willing to face the consequences, then yes. I know a lot of people say violence is never the answer, but in truth it sometimes is. If you really want somebody to leave you alone, then fight. If you win, it shows that you're dominant over that person and hopefully he/she will leave you alone.

Honestly, I think it's better to get your feelings out sooner rather than later- maybe ask him why he's being mean to you... Though, don't say it in such a way that annoys boys... If you know what I mean.

Hello. Just call me Carrots if you don't know me already. :p Anyway, I'm hoping I'll be able to make a little forum post on making friends and making sure the friendships last. ^-^ ••• I hope this helps. ••• Making friends// Making friends can be dauntless, especially if you moved schools or to a different place which is simply far away from your old friends. I mean, it's fine to keep in contact with your old friends ##-####, text, letters etc), but you do have to consider it'll be better if you can make more friends at your new location- seriously, it'll help! How to make friends// • Get talking with people- join in people's conversations; try to be a little more social- it'll be easier to make friends if you're social around people. • Have a look around- are there any clubs or events that catch your interest- maybe a drama class or art club? If you join these type of things, you're more likely to meet people who have similar interests to you. :3 • Do act yourself. That means not to be so loud that people take you in the wrong way- but don't be too quiet either- otherwise people won't notice you! • Pay attention to people when they're speaking- they'll appreciate it if you just listen to what they say and you can have your say too! • Hang out with one or two people that you already know- who knows, you might be introduced to their friends too. • Do make an effort! c: [posting more tomorrow- I'm sorry that this is absolutely terrible]
