Since I started DE shaving, and moved on to SE and injectors, I don't think I have taken more than two days "off", and that was because my schedule simply got too tight.
Even a bit before starting with DEs, learning to lather with soap and brush improved my cartridge shaving experience so much that I no longer wanted to take a day off. My face no longer needs to recover.
