You Should Be Changing Your Razor Blade More Often Than You Think...

July 22, 2015 by Francesca Giordano
shefinds | beauty

For most girls shaving is the worst and getting the perfect shave is always an issue. This is probably happening because you’re not changing your blade often enough. At least I definitely wasn’t. Jeanine Dowie, a dermatologist, recommends you change your razor every 5-10 shaves to avoid bumps, redness, and infections. However, this number varies based on the thickness of your hair and the area you are shaving.

If you shave every day and have thinner hair, you should change your blade every 10 days. If you hair is thicker, you should be changing your blade every 5-7 days. Here are some tips to determine when it is a good time to change your razor and how to make it last longer:

When to change your razor blade:

Dr. Oz says that if your razor begins to snag or pull, it is getting dull and you should replace it. These dull blades can cause cuts and razor burn. If there are any traces of rust on your blade, you should change it immediately. A razor should slide smoothly across your skin.

How to maintain your razor blade:

After every shave, you should make sure you rinse the blade with hot water until all excess hair and shaving cream is off of the blade. Take it out of the shower so it dries completely. This will prevent it from rusting which will keep the razor sharper for longer.
