Your morning shave could be transformed into a soothing, satisfying, Zen-like experience if you learn the traditional techniques of wet shaving.

This is the method your grandfather may have used, and involves only a shaving brush, shaving soap, and a razor.

The tips in the videos above will tell you everything you need to know to get a smooth, relaxing shave, and will make you realize how most shaving supplies sold in supermarkets are nothing more than shaving versions of junk food -- widely available and cheap, but not very good for your skin or well-being.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

I had used disposable razors all of my life until, about 18 months ago, I switched over to wet shaving.

Well, I have never looked back.

It provides an amazingly close shave and has a far better ecological impact on consumables. Wet shaving will also save you money as, outside of the initial investment, the upkeep costs only pennies a day. So when I saw this great review of wet shaving, I wanted to share the system with you male readers (or their wives, who may want to pass this info along!).

Wet shaving can:
  • Help reduce razor burn, ingrown hairs and redness
  • Save you money on shaving supplies
  • Reduce environmental waste (the only waste is the lather from the natural soap you wash down the drain)
  • Improve your self-esteem by giving you a smooth, refreshing shave
  • Help you connect with the shaving traditions of your grandfather or great-grandfather
In my opinion, this should be the shaving method of choice, and once you give it a try, I suspect you will agree.
