7 Electric Shaver Benefits for Smooth Skin

Skin irritation from shaving is common, but that doesn’t mean skipping your usual shave should be the next step. If you struggle with acne and skin irritation, such as redness, razor bumps, or would like to avoid nicks or cuts while shaving, an electric shaver may be a good solution. 
Take a look at how using an electric razor may benefit your skin, as well as some features from the Braun Series 9 Electric Razor that are worth exploring as you shop for your electric shaver.  

Are electric razors better than conventional razors?

While most guys still opt to use “conventional” razors (e.g. three or five-blade disposable razors or razors with replaceable heads), electric razors have also become more and more popular. Unlike conventional razors, they are built to last for many years while still delivering on a high-quality shave. 
Below are six reasons why it might be better to use an electric razor.

1. Protection from Nicks and Cuts

Braun’s new Series 9 PRO+ shaver is equipped with two ultrathin foils that allow you to shave close, but not too close. In addition, the shaver also comes with a built-in SkinGuard that prevents further skin damage with a skin-protective metal bar.

2. Less Likely to Have Ingrown Hairs

1.       New with Braun’s Series 9 PRO+ is a pre-shave ProComfort head. Before shaving, attach the ProComfort head to gently massage beard hair and lift it away from the skin. Then, follow with your normal shaving head for a shave that is not only closer, but also with more skin comfort.

3. Protects Sensitive Skin

Electric shavers help capture hair without pulling and tugging on the skin, which reduces skin irritation. Newer technology in the razor industry also means that common issues, like skin discomfort or irritation associated with shaving, are reduced. The more we learn about how the skin reacts to shaving, the better we’re able to create electric razors that reduce the most common complaints of shaving.  

4. Long Lasting Blade

Although the upfront investment in an electric razor may be higher, the payoff means that you only have to replace the cutting head about once a year, depending on the manufacturer.  

5. Easy, Pleasant Shaving Experience

Some electric razors are waterproof, making the process of shaving easier you can cut down on the time it takes to shave by eliminating the use of shaving cream or water and still have a good experience.  

6. Easy to Clean

Not cleaning your razor blade can lead to debris and hair buildup, reducing the effectiveness of the blade. Luckily, it is easy to clean an electric razor. It may come with a cleaning station to make sure the razor is ready after each use to improve the process of sanitizing for the next time you need it. 
In addition to being easy to clean, an electric razor does not need to be rinsed after each stroke, making it easy to use. 

7. Portability

In addition to being easy to clean, Braun’s Series 9 PRO+ can be used on-the-go. Our world’s first-ever portable PowerCase allows for 6 weeks of shaving without any plugs, perfect for travelling.
