The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    1. Get razor
    2. lather face with shaving cream
    3. Scrape face with razor.
    4. Rinse face.

    Squats work better than supplements.

    Don't go against the grain. I made that mistake the first time I shaved, and it was very unpleasant.

    Yes, he means go down and not up. Get a Gillette Mach 3. Shave AFTER a shower. Leave shaving cream on your face for 30 seconds to a few minutes to really soften your beard. Rinse your razor often between strokes.

    Here are a few tips from e-Shaving:

    Shaving Techniques

    Prewash the skin using warm water in order to open pores and to soften the skin's surface. This is best performed following a bath or shower, which naturally warms and moistens the skin's surface.


    Do not use excessive amounts of shaving foam or gel. Additionally, it is best to use those which benefit the skin. Foams and gels containing vitamins for the skin, which help repair shaving damaged are available.


    Shave using a razor, not an electric shaver, for best results. Electric shavers typically operate on dry skin for best performance. They are not as accurate as a sharp razor and may more easily abrade the skin's surface.


    Be sure to use a sharp razor. Regardless of the brand, if it is not sufficiently shape, it won't produce as effective a result. In fact, the odds for damaging the skin increase significantly with an older, blunt blade.


    Shave in the direction of hair growth to reduce the blade's friction with the skin. Otherwise the blade is likely to cause damage to the skin in the form of a cut or a rash-like abrasion. An exception to this is for women shaving their legs (see women's information).


    Be sure to rinse the blade several times per shave in hot water. This will keep the blade clean and improves its performance.


    Rinse the skin with warm (not hot) water when complete. This washes away the foam or gel used and helps to restore the skin's moisture level.


    Do not use aftershave when finished. Aftershave contains alcohol, which closes the skin's pores and dries out the skin. Since the act of shaving removes skin oils, it is not a good out to dry out the skin any further. Instead, use shaving oils to replenish the skin's moisture.

    Just like Natedog said....Nivea For Men products rock. I've used Gillete and all the others and Gillete is not my 2nd fav brand after trying Nivea For Men. Aftershave rocks, but the actual shave gel is amazing, been using it for a week now and love it! It lathers better than any I've used with just a small amount.

    Also, I'd go with a Mach 2 or Turbo to shave with.

    Mach 3 is good, but I'd rather just use electric.

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    Honestly, for your first couple shaves, I'd use a regular bic twin or gilette twin or even single. Some people dont take too well to the three-razor setup. Me being one. You dont know if you are sensetive to razor burn right now, so dont go max on yourself and peel off your entire dermis.

    And dont shave for the first time before school, or before a date. Something bad will happen.

    Tell me about it. First date I had.. my face looked horrible (even more then usual). I use a sensor Excell, nice.. but dull right now. Too lazy to buy a new blade. I heard cold water is better for rinsing your face afterwards, less irritation if you managed to burn yourself. How do you avoid razorburn on your neck? I get it like a bitch.

    There's a place on the net called 'e-shaving'???
    Squats work better than supplements.
