Borrowing a razor from someone else might sound simple, but there are quality and hygienic reasons why it is not a good idea of using the same razor by spouses.
You are not allowed to share a razor with someone, women or men. Men’s razor are typically designed with facial hair in mind; however, women can shave up to 10 times more surface area than men, such as legs, underarms and bikini areas.
More female razer heads are oval than square to crack tighter areas like underarms. While they come with the same sharp blades as male razors, the skin might be better lubricated when you rasp wider areas like your legs. And since body shaving also causes the handle to be seized in several ways, razer handles for women are usually easier to carry in different positions.
Why am I not supposed to share or borrow someone else’s my razor?
Owing to safety issues, you should not share a razor with someone else. You can get dubbed or cut when you shave, and when you use another razor, you are at risk of infection — and vice versa. In addition, you do not know how long the razor has been used. His or her rash may be older than you thought, and a smooth blade rash may increase the risk of skin irritation, skin burning, and bumps.
What are the ways to prevent someone else from sharing the razor?
If you are using a refillable razor, consider putting it on your blade cartridges so that if your blade is too dull, you will not strike another razor. Additional blades readily available are also useful if someone else uses your razor accidentally and you can quickly replace the blade used with a new blade to avoid cross contamination. Hold a few extras close by if you are using disposable razors. Consider placing an extra razer in your toilet bag, so you will not lose one while you are on the lane. Thus you should also know the cons of using a razor for two.
But we know it can be hard to confuse someone else with your razor. Try color matching to remove the possible risk of contamination so that you always know which one is yours. In addition, you can keep your razor clean immediately after use by rinsing it in warm water and keeping it dry after bathing to prevent rusting.
Make sure your razor can be easily identified, particularly if you are living with someone else who uses a female razor. A separate razor will help prevent the sharing of injury with someone else.
