You probably don’t know it, but there’s been a debate silently taking place all around you. This secret war is between those who believe men should shave their beards daily, and those who do not. While this may seem like a frivolous discussion, the fact of the matter is that shaving every day is a source of much bitterness and importance among those on either side.
First off, any men with sensitive skin, it’s okay you don’t have to admit it, should not shave every day because for you it can be painful and damaging. For the rest, I’ll tell it to you straight. It is extremely difficult to find a woman who likes a wild, unkempt beard. Generally, women either like beards or they don’t. If they like beards, it should be well-groomed and taken care of, and if they don’t, you could always try to win them over with your personality instead (but what kind of advice is that?) Most women don’t require a man have a beard for them to form a physical attraction to them, and most women who like beards don’t really need the man they’re with to have one. Shaving every day is your best bet at success with the opposite sex.
Of course, there’s also the health benefits…
If you’re a furry kind of guy, shaving every day is important. With excessive facial hair, a lot of particles get in.
Particles like food, sweat, dirt. I don’t care how manly you are, it’s still disgusting. When those particles begin seeping into your pores, you might find yourself with incredibly visible, painful acne, or even be forced to see a dermatologist. This entire theoretical happenstance can be prevented with a regimen of every day shaving. Using a razor to shave each day also removes dead skin, which would otherwise get in your beard along with the food, sweat, and dirt. Furthermore, nearly all shaving items have some sort of antiseptic (that’s right, your shaving cream is a germ killer), and if you use aftershave, you’re even better protected against skin infections.
Shaving every day is just as important if you’re a guy who grows less than stubble each day. Correlations between beard growth and the rate at which men shave have come up; the more you shave, the more the hair rebels and grows. (Which another article points out right off the bat.
If that isn’t reason enough to convince you, let’s talk about products. Razors are good (if you have shaky hands or diminished motor control, electric ones still work, they’re just less effective at removing dead skin). Using some sort of gel or shaving cream will help you prevent little squares of toilet paper going on your face, and though aftershave adds time to the regimen, it will make sure you get the best results possible.
In essence: shaving every day gets you the attention of women and also keeps you healthy and handsome.
