Disposable razors are generally used by people who travel frequently. Disposable razors act as a blessing in disguise when you cannot carry your traditional cartridge or razors. All razors have their pros and cons. However, disposable razors cannot be used for your everyday shaving needs. Disposable razors are perfect for your emergencies. If an unexpected dinner date is up or you have to go for a compelling presentation, the disposable razors act as a savior.
These are the tips you should remember that can help you use the disposable razor in the right manner. So, here’s how to use a disposable razor:
Do not neglect the first and the most critical step -- preparing your face. Yes, since you are going to use a lower quality razor, you mustn’t forget to prepare your face for the worst. The steel quality of the blades is not the best one and hence, preparing your skin makes a lot of sense, especially when you are dealing with disposable razors.
You start the prep by washing your face with hot water or by taking a hot shower. It hydrates your facial hair and lets your razor glide through your face effortlessly.
If not the razor then at least your lubricant should be a perfect one. Yes, we are talking about shaving gel or foam. Go for Gillette Series Sensitive Shaving Gel that provides you with an incredibly smooth shave. The ingredients in the gel help you combat with the skin irritation during shaving.
Make sure you are trimming up your hair to a manageable length before shaving it out with a razor. Disposable razors get clogged with hair, post which it cannot shave it right, and you end up putting too much pressure during the strokes. Therefore, keep it short enough for the razor to manage it right.
Tip: You must not attempt to shave the facial hair which has grown over the last two days without trimming, depending on the speed of hair growth.
Now, it is not a mandatory rule to shave with the grain, but it is the recommended way. Running with the wind is much easier than running against it. Also, it helps the razor to cut through the facial hairs easily.
Using a good quality aftershave is a great way to tackle post-shaving skin irritations. Pick the Gillette Series Arctic Ice Aftershave Splash that provides you with a crisp finish. An aftershave splash provides the moisturization to your skin that shaving might have taken away.
With these tips you can be a pro at shaving with Disposable razors. However, on regular days, we recommend that you use the New Gillette SkinGuard razor which is designed to give your skin the most comfortable shave.

It is positioned in such a way that it works to minimize the tug and pull and cuts hair at the skin level preventing irritation. Thus, the Gillette SkinGuard blades present in the razor will help you give a smooth shave.
