Mark also recommends using a skin toner to bring the skin back to its natural pH, an unscented lotion, and a high-quality exfoliant. "You’ll notice a world of difference on your skin, no matter where you’re shaving," he says.
Cost of shaving is obviously highly variable; though I've had good luck using cheaper razors that are marketed for men (i.e. blue in color) -- I find them to be sharper than women's razors (just go slow!). Of course, disposable razors are cheap but the cost can add up during a lifetime.
After you finish your shave, rinse the blades and lay them face-up on the bathroom surface so moisture and bacteria are less likely to build up.
I’m skipping right over laser-hair removal, as it is the lesser stepchild of zap-zap hair removal and cannot be used on tattooed skin. Pass. Next up: electrolysis.
“Laser targets pigment, which is why you have to have dark hair and light skin for laser to work," says Danielle Lee of Rain City Electrolysis. "Electrolysis is targeting the hair follicle itself, not the pigment. I work on my tattoos in my spare time. Nothing like a fuzz-free, shiny tattoo!”
