    What is a double edge safety razor?

    A double edge safety razor is a type of razor that uses a single, replaceable blade with two sharp edges. It's called "safety" because the blade is protected by a guard, reducing the risk of cuts compared to a straight razor.

    How do I prepare for a wet shave with a safety razor?

    To prepare for a wet shave with a safety razor, start by washing your face with warm water to soften the hair and open the pores. Apply a quality shaving cream or soap to create a rich lather.

    How do I shave with a double edge safety razor?

    Hold the razor at a 30-degree angle to your skin, and shave with the grain of your beard using short, gentle strokes. Rinse the razor frequently between strokes to prevent clogging.

    Is wet shaving with a safety razor better for sensitive skin?

    Yes, wet shaving with a safety razor is often gentler on sensitive skin compared to multi-blade cartridge razors. 

    How often should I change the blade in a safety razor?

    It's recommended to change the blade after 4-6 shaves, depending on how thick and coarse your facial hair is. A dull blade can cause irritation and cuts, so it's important to replace it regularly.

    What should I do after shaving with a safety razor?

    After shaving with a safety razor, rinse your face with cool water to close the pores. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel and apply a soothing aftershave balm and moisturiser to hydrate your skin.

    How do I care for my safety razor?

    After each shave, rinse your safety razor thoroughly with warm water to remove any hair and shaving cream residue. Periodically, disassemble the razor and clean it with a soft brush to prevent build-up.

    Can I travel with a safety razor?

    Yes, you can travel with a safety razor. Pack it in a travel case or a secure pouch to protect the blade and prevent damage. Make sure to check airline regulations for carrying razors in carry-on luggage. You can also purchase razors made with travel in mind.
