If you want a smooth shave you need to start with the basics: preventing ingrown hairs and removing dead skin cells. To save some precious minutes, shave immediately after your shower as the steam will open your pores, perfectly priming your face for shaving. Dry shaving plus an old blade are the perfect combination for razor burn and skin irritation. Make sure you use a shaving gel or cream designed with sensitive skin in mind, so your blades can glide over your skin effortlessly whilst providing a protective barrier for your skin. Say no to blunt razors. Make sure you have a fresh set of blades ready for when your current blades become dull.

Several recent online videos created by brands like Gillette recast hair removal below the neck as the domain of average Joes.
There is nothing more disappointing than taking a new guy home for the first time and ripping his clothes off, only to find that he has "manscaped" himself to look like some sort of dude-shaped topiary. When I bring home a man, I want to see a masculine wreath of pubes around his dick, not a shaved walrus. Guys, this has to stop. The social scientists over at Cosmopolitan recently published a study claiming that 95 percent of men now trim or shave their body hair in one way or another, a practice that has taken on the cringeworthy title of manscaping. I hate it and want it to die.
