So. Your team is almost out of the playoffs. Maybe they are one of only two teams to make the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs consecutively for the last three seasons (NY Rangers and LA Kings). But that’s not enough, is it? You’re still angry.
Maybe there was a noticeable lack of effort from some of the highest paid players in the game. Maybe some of your star players phoned it in. Maybe your best players have injuries that they won’t yet reveal.
Regardless of the reason, losing stings. So make sure your shave doesn’t!
Here are a few tips: (Credit to: Top 10 Shaving Tips)
- The trick to shaving is to wet your skin and let it soften from the heat and moisture. You don’t want to shave dry skin. Shaving is a natural exfoliator and if you try to dry shave, you run the risk of clogging up the razor with dead skin while putting yourself at risk for nicks and razor burn.
- Be sure to change razors or cartridges on a regular basis; a dull blade can lead to nicks. . It’s best to never use another person’s razor because there is a chance you could get Hepatitis C from fresh blood on a razor.
- Be sure to exfoliate your skin before shaving. It gets rid of all the dead skin cells that could clog up your razor, preventing a close shave. There are several ways to exfoliate. You can use exfoliating gloves or a cloth in the shower or dry brush before you shower (never get a wooden brush wet, it will mildew fast). See “How to Exfoliate” for more information.
- When finished shaving, apply oil or moisturizer. Your skin has few oil glands and has a tendency for dryness.
- If you have a chronic case of ingrown hairs, try Tend Skin, an over-the-counter lotion for ingrown hairs, applying it in the morning and at night. The bumps should disappear within a couple days.
So there you have it Boys & Girls. Make sure to treat your skin right or you will spend the entire off season with a mean case of razor burn.
