Just started out DE shaving this week. I remember my dad had one when I was little, but when it came time for me to start shaving, he had switched to electric, and that's pretty much what I've done my whole life. Though I do shave my legs with cartridge blades and goop in the can now and then (I'm a competitive cyclist).
I've got a sampler pack of blades, still have a lot to learn but got my best shave today. I can make an ok lather with soap, but for the life of me can't do the same with cream. Maybe it's the hard water here, but I'm going to try another brand and practice a lot before writing it off. Even shaved my legs last night to retire a blade, which worked out decently enough.
Here's my question. Like I said, most of my life I've used an electric shaver. But now, especially the last two days, it seems like I sweat a bit on my face, mostly on my upper lip and lower lip down to my chin. Not on my cheeks or my neck. Is this normal? Or am I hacking the skin there? I use some aftershave balm, and I'm trying to close my pores after shaving with cold water, but am I doing enough? I really seem to notice this the most when I'm exercising more than anything else. If it's normal, does this go away with time? Like I said, I never really remember this happening with an electric. Any comments appreciated.
