Today we will try to figure out how to choose an electric shaver..
First you need to determine for yourself which of the shaving systems – rotary or mesh, is more suitable. The rotary system guarantees a closer shave and better shaves uneven stubble. But at the same time, it injures the skin more, since the process of shaving the bristles is performed by small rotating round knives that come into contact with the skin. The mesh shaving system eliminates direct skin contact with vibrating blades, which helps to avoid microtrauma, i.e. is more suitable for men with sensitive skin. You can even determine which of the shaving systems the product you like belongs to, even by the name of the manufacturer. Panasonic and Braun produce foil shavers, Philips specializes in rotary.
The quality and cleanliness of a shave is determined by the number of shaving heads, the speed of their rotation or oscillation, and mobility. Rotary electric shavers have 2-3 shaving heads, mesh – 1-3. The more shaving heads, the better and faster the shaving process, but the price of the product increases accordingly. Floating heads can shave hard to reach stubble without having to try to apply pressure on the razor. The closest possible shave will be achieved only if the razor lightly touches the skin. If an electric shaver is your main shaving tool and is used daily at home, it is better to purchase a model that provides for the possibility of wet shaving. It will provide a better and more comfortable shave, and its design allows you to rinse the product with ordinary running water. Some models even provide reservoirs for supplying gel or lotion..
In the event that an electric shaver is bought for occasional use on business trips, long trips, outings, etc., the best choice would be a model that combines the ability to work from the mains and battery. With this choice, first of all, you need to pay attention to the capacity of the battery, the method and speed of its charging. It will not be superfluous to buy a power cord that allows you to recharge from a car cigarette lighter. Expensive models of electric shavers can be equipped with additional features and capabilities, for example: a self-cleaning system, manual adjustment for mains voltage, automatic overcharging protection, etc..
