Shaving Tips: How Often Should I Change My Razor Blades

Posted by {"category":["Women","Shaving tips"]} on Dec 2nd 2020

Do your legs feel rough even after your shave? Are you finding stray stubble in those hard-to-reach places? Are you getting a lot of razor bumps and cuts? You might be shaving with a dull ladies’ razor. Many women wonder, ”How often should I change my razor blades?” There isn’t a hard and fast rule, but there are several guidelines to follow to make sure you get touchably smooth skin every time you shave. Check out the shaving tips below and see for yourself!

Just toss it.

It can be hard to know when it’s time to swap out those blades and how often you should do it. Look out for dullness, rust or a lot of gunk stuck between the blades. Dull blades can increase your chance of nicks, cuts and skin irritation. It can also prevent you from getting as close a shave as possible. So, if you think it might be time to toss your blades, toss them. Depending on your hair texture and how often you shave, your razor should last for five to 10 shaves before it’s time to say goodbye.

Make them last longer.

If you want to get the most out of your blades, it’s important to take care of them. Shave with shaving cream for women and rinse the blades after each stroke. When you’re done shaving, rinse your razor fully, let it air dry, and store it in a dry place to help prevent rust. Your blades will still need to be changed eventually, so keep an eye out for dullness or signs of wear.

Invest in a razor for women.

You might not be getting a close shave because of the quality of your razor. Many women think that fancy razors don’t matter, but the better your razor is, the better shave you’ll get. We believe the best razors for women are ones made just for them. Venus® razors are designed with features that fit the beautiful curves of women’s bodies, making them easier to use and more effective. If you’re still getting razor bumps after changing out your razor blades, you might have sensitive skin. Our best razor for sensitive skin is Venus Embrace Sensitive. It’s dermatologist-approved with eight times more glide boosters than our original razor, so your skin can get the TLC it needs.

Mix it up.

The best part about Venus razors is that every one of our reusable razors is compatible with our blade refills, so you can mix it up next time you change your blades. There are a lot of refills from which to choose. Try out our blades with built-in shave gel, shavers for sensitive skin, or a set bursting with moisture. The choice is yours!

To help protect your skin and promote a smooth shave, we recommend you follow these tips. At the end of the day, shaving is a personal choice. It’s up to you to decide when to change your blades. Do whatever makes you feel like the best possible version of yourself.
