Or maybe you've noticed that the blade isn't performing as well as it did when you first got it.
Well, question no more! Here are some guidelines to help you figure out how often you should change your razor blade before it irritates or damages your skin!
According to the American Academy of Dermatologists (2018), rule of thumb is that you would typically replace your disposable blades every five to seven times - if not sooner. After each shave, the edge of your razor becomes slightly duller, resulting in a less closer shave after each use.
- Your skin feels irritated after shaving
- You find patchy areas or missing spots after shaving
- Your razor begins to look and feel dull
- You feel that your hairs are getting pulled instead of cut as you shave (or the feeling that you have to drag the blades across your skin, rather than an effortless glide)
- The debris in between the blades can no longer be washed away
- Upon shaving, thoroughly lubricate the surface of your skin with a shaving gel, soap, cream, or foam. This provides less resistance as the blade glides through your skin, meaning the sharp edge of your blade won’t dull as quickly. (Being generous with the coating would also help with razor burns.)
- Rinse the blades after each swipe when you shave helps prevent buildup and dead skin cells between blades.
- When you’re done shaving, you would want to thoroughly rinse your razor. Wash it with an antibacterial soap, rinse again with hot water, and then allow your razor to air dry completely before putting it away. (If you neglect to clean your razor between each shave, bacteria and debris will begin to build up between the blades and can quickly dull them.)
- Lastly, Store your razor in a dry area—not a sink or shower—to prevent rust from forming and to prolong the life of the razor blades.
Hopefully, these pointers will help you get the most from your blades!
Keep in mind that if you don't clean your razors after each shave, bacteria can quickly develop on a razor, and if you nick yourself while shaving, your cut is more likely to become infected.
