For some men, shaving is a once weekly check-in designed to remove what I call, but by no means really is, a beard. For others, the task is performed daily, or their face would otherwise surrender to its facial hair by week's end. Either way, it's a ritual — one that men should look forward to rather than dread.
But the task itself can be annoying, so I get the natural inclination to avoid it until the last possible moment: razor burn sucks, creams can dry out the skin, razors are expensive and so on and so forth. So, trust our comprehensive guide to shaving for insight on which razors work best, which creams won't cause cracked skin, how to treat razor burn (and fast) and beyond.
