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:
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 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 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!

When it comes to looking attractive many would argue that men tend to have it easier. Other men may simply get a bit lazy and “let themselves go.” With these five easy ways to keep you looking handsome Micro Touch Tough Blade hopes to shed some light on those forgotten must-do skin care tips.
1) SPF, SPF, SPF! Sadly this is not a sports-theme chant, but a huge key in good skin care. Using a lotion or sunscreen with SPF can combat aging, as well as sunburns.
2) Drink up! Drinking plenty of fluids and moisturizing plays a huge role in your skin’s health. Having dry skin can make it crack and bleed easier, especially in men who shave on a daily basis. Buying a good moisturizer and making sure you drink the suggested amount of fluids can keep your skin looking fresh.
3) Scrub-a-dub dub! Washing your face can keep acne and oily skin at bay. If you don’t wash the grime and sweat off your face daily then you’re more likely to be prone to acne skin and clogged pores. Invest in a good face wash before it’s too late!
4) Shave! Beards seem to be very “in” at the moment. While many women find them sexy, unkept beards can be a huge turn-off. Using razors to keep your beard neat and trimmed (or keeping yourself completely shaved) can get expensive. Micro Touch Tough Blade gives you a perfect shave year round…and for a price that can’t be beat! Having a nice shave can give your appearance and ego a boost.
5) Don’t forget to exfoliate! Exfoliating at least once a week can help open up and clean out your pores. It can also help pull some of the ingrown hair up so you can get a closer and cleaner shave. Nowadays you can even invest in a face wash, exfoliator, and moisturizer kit to keep you looking handsome.
