Runners Swimmers, & Cyclists: Why Shave?

Runners, swimmers, and cyclists all have reasons to shave at least parts of their body. Some of these reasons are the same and some are different and they have both physical and psychological effects. Micro Touch Tough Blade invites you to join us as we explore some top reasons:

Swimmers

There are several reasons that swimmers shave their bodies, or at least parts of it. Shaving hair that isn’t covered by a swimsuit helps to increase aerodynamics, and in a sport where winning can be decided by a hundredth of a second, even the slightest decrease in resistance can make a huge difference. Not only does shaving remove hair from the body, it also removes a couple layers of dead skin cells, which helps to produce a much better feeling in the water as the new skin is much more sensitive. This increased sensitivity can lead to the swimmer being more cognizant of their motions, leading to increased performance. The increased sensitivity also makes the swimmer feel like they are swimming much faster than usual, which is a solid psychological boost.

Cyclists

Cyclists are mostly known for shaving their legs. The most noted reason why cyclists shave their legs is for medical reasons. It is almost inevitable that all cyclists will crash at some point, and having shaved legs makes clean-up of that nasty road rash much easier. Along with medical reasons, cyclists also shave their legs for psychological reasons. Having smooth legs could just so happen to make a cyclist feel faster, and in turn could have positive effects on his/her performance.

Runners

Runners shaving their legs has become increasingly popular in recent years, following the lead of cyclists and for mostly the same reasons. Runners also shave for medical reasons in case they fall and suffer road rash. Shaved legs also make it easier to apply and remove kinesio tape to knees and ankles. Post-race massages also feel better without the tug of leg hairs. As with swimmers and cyclists, runners might also shave to “feel” faster. Psychology is a really funny thing, and if used to your advantage, could actually give you an edge.

Obviously, all of these apply to triathletes as well!

Micro Touch Tough Blade: Review & Unboxing

Micro Touch Tough Blade review YouTube Zacchus

YouTuber, Zachus, recently released a video of an unboxing and review of the Micro Touch Tough Blade. He begins his review by discussing that he hasn’t been able to find a good, affordable razor lately. He’s sick of walking into Target or Walmart where the only men’s shaving products are seriously overpriced razors.

After unboxing his MicroTouch Tough Blade to show everything that comes with the package, Zachus goes on to say “I just wanted to tell you real quick how good this feels, and it feels amazing. I thought it was going to be like a cheap plastic, but it is almost like a metal.” He also says that it really feels like he paid a lot of money for it.

The video only includes the unboxing and his first impressions on the design and feel of the product. However, in the description of the video he writes, “I LOVE this razor. It’s easy to shave with even when I’ve gone past shaving and it feels great in the hand. Got to try it!”

Check out his full MicroTouch Tough Blade unboxing and review.

Popular Shaving Myths Debunked

MicroTouch Tough Blade shaving mythsThere are plenty of shaving myths out there today that really cause some men a lot of confusion. Here are several of the most popular myths (debunked):

Shaving Makes Hair Grow Back Thicker

Probably the most popular shaving myth is that after you shave, your hair grows back thicker. This can either make people very weary of shaving as they don’t want their facial hair to get thicker, or it can give people who are looking to grow thicker facial hair false hope. The reason why it might look thicker is because after a shave, your hair will have a blunter tip and will feel stubbly, but it is not actually thicker.

Shaving Makes Hair Grow Back a Different Color

Your facial hair will always grow back the same color that it always does. Like with the thicker myth, hair might seem a little darker at first when it is just stubble but as it grows out you’ll notice that it is the same color that it has always been.

Shaving Makes Hair Grow Back Faster

Shaving does not make your hair grow back any faster. Some will see an increase in speed of facial hair growth as they get older, but it has nothing to do with shaving or how often you shave.

Razors Should Be Kept in the Shower

Razors should not be stored in the shower. If they stay wet constantly, it increases the chances of bacteria growth and rust which are not things you would want touching your face. Razors should always be stored in dry places.

Shave Right When You Enter the Shower

MicroTouch Tough Blade knows you should actually shave right after the shower. The reason it is recommended to shave after a shower is that your hairs are well hydrated and soft.  Ideally, the shower should be warm and you should really take care in cleaning and exfoliating all areas in which you intend to shave.

More Pressure = Closer Shave

This is not only wrong, but quite unsafe. Applying too much pressure could cause cuts and razor burn. MicroTouch Tough Blade razors are designed to provide a close shave without the need of applying too much pressure.

Knowing what is a fact and what is a myth is important when it comes to shaving. You can’t always trust everything that someone else tells you.  You need to make sure you know for yourself what is right and what is wrong and we hope these tips from Micro Touch Tough Blade help you on your path towards shaving truth!
