It can only lead you to cuts and razor burns. Be gentle with your razor and get the closer shave, no harshness required.

You don’t have to be all careful about one blade and one shave but shouldn’t overuse it as well. You should preferably go 5-6 times with one razor. It depends on your hair thickness how fast or slow the blade dulls out.
9.Importance of post shave
Post shave dryness is compulsory as shaving exfoliates our skin, followed by redness, sensitivity and razor bumps. A soothing balm or moisturizer can be used for intensive care.
How can after-shave with alcohol damage your skin?
Here is why you should immediately stop using alcohol-based after-shave. Because you’ve just shed off your top layer and exposed the baby skin underneath. Although you enjoy the tingling sensation but all you’re doing is drying out your skin instead of protecting it. You can also darken your skin by doing that. Opt for after-shaves that have Shea butter that can help locking up the moisture.
