Metro For Men Debunks Grooming Myths
Men’s Grooming Myth #1:
Exclusively Shave Against The Grain. While this may make sense intuitively if you want a clean smooth shave it’s best to shave with the grain. When you shave against the direction of your hair growth you can run into some issues like irritated skin razor burn or even ingrown hairs. Shaving against the grain does make for a slightly closer shave however the risks outnumber the benefits. Simply put would you rather have a closer shave or suffer through the tedious torture of irritated skin? With the correct technique it\’s simple to get a closer shave without irritating your skin. Here\’s the key to a proper shave: determine which way your hair is growing (different sections can grow in different directions) first; wash your face with warm water and apply pre-shave oil to soften up the hair; lather up your shaving cream and shave using short strokes.
Men’s Grooming Myth #2:
Certain Foods Make Your Beard Grow Quicker. No matter how desperately you try to defeat biology there’s no food or vitamin that can speed up a patchy beard\’s growth. Despite this our body requires amino acids and sufficient protein in our diet to grow hair. So males who are anemic may frequently experience beard thinning. While a healthy diet can contribute to a healthy beard it will not speed up the growth process.
