Any man or woman who shaves on a regular basis does so as part of a hygienic routine. What drives that routine is a need to care for oneself and one’s appearance. Just like you, your shaving blades and shaving foils need ongoing care as part of their routine. Certain habits you may currently have will actually shorten the life of your shaver blades and foils! Today, we will discuss some habits that you must break if you want to preserve and extend the life of your shaving razor blades.
Common Mistakes Made with Shaving Blades and Foils:
Shaving through a heavy beard is a good way to shorten the life of your razor blades. It is always a good idea to trim your beard down before shaving so that the razor can do its job more easily.

Allowing your electric razor to overheat can become problematic rather quickly. Allow for break periods if you notice your razor becoming warm and overheated. Also, consider using lubricating oil to help prevent the blades from becoming overworked and thus overheated.
If you store your razor away before it has dried, your razor will dull much more quickly and is more prone to rust. Allow your razor parts and pieces to dry out on a towel before storing them by disassembling them.
Get a Cleaner Shave With Well Maintained Shaver Blades
Tapping your razor against the side of your sink or any other hard surface in order to clean it can break your razor. A better approach to cleaning out your razor that will also preserve its life is rinsing it out with water from your sink or move it rapidly through a sink filled with water. If neither of these methods adequately clean out your razor, you can use a cleaning spray.
Using too much force or pressure when you shave is another way to dull or break your razor. You should not need to press down too firmly in order to shave.
