Hello everyone. I am new to the world of "gentlemans" shaving. Up until 2 days ago I was a gillete mach3, shave gel, and alcohol based balm man. Not anymore!
I got myself a nice safety razor, some almond cream, a badger brush and some "skin food" from trumpers.
Today was my second shave with all this new stuff. I'm really enjoying the experience.
I just had one or two questions that you guys might be able to help me with:
So far, I'm getting a really good close shave. But I'm getting a few nicks and quite bad razor burn on my neck. I was just wondering if this was normal? I guess my skin has to get used to the new methods right? I do have overly sensitive skin anyway... do you think in the long term, proper shaving (safety razor, brush..etc..) will help improve and toughen up my skin? I'm still only 24...
cheers, thanks a lot for your help. great forum.
