How to Choose an Electric Shaver

Life has rules. Don’t step on the cracks in the pavement. Never disturb a wasps’ nest. Avoid eating anything in the fridge that’s crawling out on its own. These rules are there for your own protection. So here are 5 more male grooming rules.. Follow them if you don’t want to be the guy who turns up for work with bits of toilet paper stuck to his face.

With innumerable electric shaving tools to choose from today, it can be a quite a task to find one that’s both convenient and gentle on the skin. Tough as it may be, this evaluation is absolutely essential to find the electric shaver perfect for your shaving needs. To make your decision process simpler, here’s a guide to everything you need to know about choosing an electric shaver.


Convenience: Pick an electric shaver that can be used under both wet and dry conditions. That way, you can achieve optimized shaving results anytime – whether you’re using shaving gel or foam in the shower, or shaving without water when you’re short on time.


Skin Protection: Opt for a shaver with rounded low-friction protection heads that adjust to the contours of your face. This feature will give you the least skin damage as well as prevent nicks and cuts. It is also perfect for styling beards and mustaches.


Close Shave: Whether you’re shaving a stubble or longer hair, you want to look for rounded edges and flex heads with independent movements. These features ensure a close shave, allowing the blade to glide smoothly and comfortably across the skin without any damage.


Cleaning: It’s important to keep the shaver and blades clean but it’s not easy to remember to do that all the time. So, it’s better to choose an electric shaver that’s completely waterproof and can be rinsed quickly and easily.


Mains vs. Rechargeable Shavers: Go for a shaver that can be charged overnight and then be used without a cord for numerous shaves. A battery indicator should alert you when it’s time for its next charge, and a quick charge for a couple of minutes should be enough for a one-time shave.


Dual Benefit: A complete shave isn’t just about getting rid of the hair; for the sideburns, you want just a light trim, so you don’t have to use scissors. Thus, it’s more convenient to pick up an electric shaver that has a shaver and trimmer built right in.

Once you have a shaver with the aforementioned features, you’ll be ready to face each day with the well-styled, clean look you’re aiming for. It’s also extremely handy for those impromptu date nights and business meetings you never seem to have enough time to prep for!
