Resolution 2012: Improve the Way We Shave

2012 is just hours away and I'm deep in resolution reflection. Yes, I hope to be a wiser, kinder, more interesting human being throughout the 365 days of the new year, but mostly I hope to shift the way I approach the little things -- and to inspire others to do the same. Like shaving. My tenure with Pacific Shaving has brought a heightened awareness to this daily task. I no longer look at the process of taking razor to skin as a simple chore. Through my own experiences navigating the bumps and curves of legs and underarms, I've learned just how challenging it can be to shave easily, to shave smoothly. And the gentlemen in my life have shown me how tough it can be to tame facial hair without nicks, razor burn or financial commitment (phew, razors are expensive!). This year, I invite you to resolve to improve the way you shave. Make a commitment to your skin. It will thank you. Start by upgrading your shaving products. Choose a shaving cream or oil and after-shave moisturizer made from nothing but safe and natural ingredients. The skin is the body's biggest organ -- you want to feel good about what you put on it. Next, refuse to fall prey to the zillion dollar advertising campaigns of razor companies. Keep it simple. You don't need seven blades to achieve a smooth shave. Really, you only need two. And keep that razor in tip-top shape with a daily dose of Blade Oil. You have the power to extend the life of your razor blade -- a move that is good for the wallet and good for the earth. Then, opt for cold water when in the act. Cooler water helps prevent razor burn and irritation. Resolve to improve your shave in 2012. Happy New Year! - Marisa
