Two Steps to 365 Days of Unique Wet Shaving Experiences
So there comes a time in every man’s life when enough is enough! Performing the same routine over and over again despite the best know-how and equipment might just not make the cut and ultimately lead you nowhere. Why? Well gentlemen, variety is the proverbial spice of life is it not? When it comes to keeping things fresh and inviting we’ve found two great tips you can use to make the wet shave unique in every way and every day. Enjoy.
Learn how to increase your wet shave gear
This tip is a real game changer. Because we not going to tell you to buy a special shaving brush or use a particular shaving soap or blade, but rather a shift in mind set. So no matter the size of your budget every guy can start spicing things up right now.
We suggest you incorporate a self-styled research and development program that comprises monthly (less or more) expenditure for some new or different wet shaving piece of equipment or consumable. Start small with a razor, doubled edged blade, shaving brush and soap. Scour the highways and byways of the online wet shaving community forums and gradually build a formidable collection with pieces that reflect your deepening insight of the wet shave process. You could even acquire some vintage shaving gear to spice things up a bit.
This can be a lifelong endeavour where each piece reflects a change or growth in your personal understanding of the wet shave process. The idea here is to combine razors, blades, soaps and creams in unique ways so that your routine becomes a veritable explorative exercise in finding the ultimate combination of wet shaving products. And be sure to let us know if you find a particularly winning combo.
Set yourself mini challenges
If you’ve been wet shaving for a while now (and even not) you will have an ‘off’ day. This is a day where the blade seems blunt, the razor doesn’t fit so snug or the soap just doesn’t want to reach lathering perfection. You name it we’ve encountered our fair share of dud days. We suggest you note the grievance in a kind of mental wet shave troubleshooting diary (or put in that moleskin) for future improvement. Setting a mini challenge in terms of improving on that poor performance is what defines the diligence of like-minded wet shavers the world round.
When the time comes around for another go at using that mediocre combo; having a plan in mind to get a better result, and then noting the changes that worked, can enhance your understanding of the wet shave and is enormously rewarding. Wet shavers are problem solvers and we encourage our readers to be relentless in their pursuit of wet shaving self-mastery.
Take these two simple ideas and blaze forward on the trails to wet shaving adventure and enjoyment. Please don’t hesitate to let us know how your unique approaches have brought variety and success for you.
