Tempted to jump on the facial shaving bandwagon? Me too! The reason? Beauty influencers going gaga over face shaving benefits! In fact, no glass-skin tutorial is ever complete without this facial hair removal method as the first step. From dead skin removal to giving you a flawless makeup base, there’s a lot that face shaving can do. But if you’re confused about which razor to use, here’s a breakdown of the best razors for women:
Single Blade Razor
As the name suggests, a single-blade razor has a blade that cuts the hair at the skin’s surface. They are used by barbers to shave and shape the sideburns for men. However, they can be a great shaving tool for women as well.
A single-blade razor cuts the hair close to the skin’s surface in one go. It effectively removes peach fuzz and dead skin, helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and boosts skin cell regeneration. There are no additional blades (as in case of a multi-blade razor) to tug, pull or cut the hair below the skin’s level. So the chances of getting ingrown hair are quite slim. This combined with lesser friction from one blade also reduces chances of skin irritation, breakouts, rashes, and the much-dreaded razor burns. Due to their compact size, these razors move through the contours of the face easily and can be used to remove the hair even from the smaller patches of the face like the forehead and upper lip.
If not cleaned properly after each use, single-blade razors can sometimes cause skin irritation and breakouts. It can also take you some time to get your shaving technique right and single-blade razors can cause cuts if not used correctly.
While the first blade pulls the hair up, the other blades work to cut hair from as close to the skin as possible. These also come as disposable (single-use) blades as well as in reusable varieties with cartridges. You can change them after using it three-four times.
Multi-blade razors work better for those with coarse hair as the blades cut the head as well as the shaft of the hair.
If you have sensitive skin, these razors can cause cuts and skin irritation. This is because of the higher friction between the skin and the multiple blades. Additionally, they don’t work well for smaller areas of the face like the eyebrows and upper lips.
Safety Blade Razor
Safety blade razors are a safer version to the single-blade razors. These come with a protective barrier between the blade’s edge and the skin.
Safety blade razors are beginner-friendly. They perform like single-blade razors and give you max protection from cuts.
Safety-blade razors are not as effective for those with thick or coarse hair growth. They also don’t move through the contours of the face as easily and can’t be used for smaller areas like the eyebrows and upper lips.
These battery-operated, pen-sized shaving tools have oscillating or rotating blades behind a metal guard that move automatically to shave off the hair.
Electric razors give a smooth finish and don’t cut the skin. They can also be used without a shaving cream and are perfect to remove the peach fuzz from sensitive skin. They work equally well on smaller areas like eyebrows and upper lips too.
Electric razors might not work for those with coarse or thick hair. They need to be cleaned properly before and after each use as dirt can get trapped between their blades and cause infections. They also require timely battery changes/charging.
