Start > Resource centre > Articles > Close Shave Part 2

Since the majority of men do not have the time to go to the barber, and therefore do their own shaving, barber's rash is now a rarity. Even among the few who do attend hairdressing salons, the latter are now almost invariably carefully maintained and have a high standard of hygiene. Whatever the skin condition from which the face may suffer, the patient must always keep to its own towel. Also, the razor must be thoroughly cleaned after every shave, (though actual scalding is said to blunt the edge).

Very occasionally a patient who uses an electric razor gets an allergic rash due to the chrome or nickel in the razor. But it is possible to identify the metal responsible and take precautions. Finally, use pleasantly warm water for shaving when you have any skin trouble on the face, and don't follow the shaving by after-shaving lotion until the rash is better.

There are plenty of shaving products for men that are available, such as skin soothers or moisturisers, so, if you are not suffering from any infections, there is no reason why you cannot have a close shave and maintain healthy skin.
