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.

I feel like I am getting an anxiety attack everytime someone tries to talk to me (i have not been diagnosed with social anxiety)! They don't know how bad it is. People say that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Well, suicide is the light at the end. I have attempted suicide twice but I always chicken out. I need someone to kill me. Please. As someone who has friends who were suicidal, and having been suicidal at one point in my life, It's the other way around. The people who are suicidal don't often realize how selfish taking their own life will be, because of the suffering they're experiencing. More directly to your case, though, anxiety causes control-seeking behavior. The taking of ones' own life can be seen as a way to escape the feelings which hurt us, and so we seek to control the situiation by taking ourselves out of the equation. It's like someone who falls ill when they get anxious at school.They know that falling ill will get them out of school, so someone who is anxious can actually have a physical illness as a result of wanting to escape the situation which makes them feel that way. Suicide works a lot in the same way, it's just that instead of getting out of school, we're getting out of life.  The only difference is that the person who gets out of school gets to experience that relief of the anxiety going away, the return of normal breathing as they're able to finally clam down their body and their mind. They start to feel comfortable again. Someone who commits suicide gets none of this, as they'll never again feel anything. There's no possibility of that feeling of relief, there's no longer a person.  In my view, feeling nothing at all is worse than feeling pain. At least when you can feel, you have a chance of feeling better. Life is too, well, lively...especially in such a time like this. I mean, they're making phones which could make their own power for goodness sakes!
