How do you use an Electric Razor

Good day and hello there friend! Have you stumbled here, because you have no idea, you really, really have no idea on how to use the electric razor? Perhaps another reason that you find yourself stumbled here is you want a second opinion on how to rightly shave your face with your electric shaver? Fear not, for I am here to teach you how to shave with an electric razor.

Before we start, a quirky fact, shave and razor are terms that can be used interchangeably, it’s like tomayto and tomatoe when pronouncing the fruit tomato. They denote the same idea of the instrument for hair removal. Thus, do not be confused dear audience if I happen to use electric razor or electric shaver interchangeably, because I am still referring to the same apparatus for hair removal.

Moving on, let’s start!

Dear audience I assume already that you know how to shave already, or have handled a razor once or twice in your life; however, if you haven’t fear not again for I shall guide you step by step on how to shave with your newly bought best electric shaver.

The First Step is to Prep The Area for Shaving

Whether it is your face, body, legs, arms, etc. where you will mow your electric shaver, it is important to prep the hair found therein for the shave. To get the best results, keep the hair ‘arid and stiff’ (I must admit it is just a fancy way of saying keep it dry) to get the best trim when you shave. Also, another thing to prep is the area for shaving, you must wash it or clean it so that dust and other particles, which are too small for your eyes to see will not build up and bog down your electric razor. Casing point if you will not wash the area for shaving before shaving you will find yourself having one destroyed electric shaver, so please dear audience wash it. Hence, I advise you to wash the shaving area first before shaving it with your electric shaver.

The Second Step is to Start Shaving

Hold your electric shaver with your dominant hand and feel ‘the grain’ with your non-dominant hand.

For those who know not what ‘the grain’ is, the grain means the direction where your hair is growing whether it is going down, up, left, right, wherever. It is important to feel the grain, because we do not want those nasty razor bumps and ingrown hairs on your face (Trust me they are ugly to have. Being a bearded guy myself, I can attest to their great ugliness and you do not want to have those razor bumps and ingrown hair). So please, as your friend feel the grain when you shave I do not want to see you injured because you shaved against the grain.

After feeling the grain you start cutting down your hair. If specifically you are shaving your face, I suggest you start with your cheeks and chin, and then you move on to your sideburns, and up your mustache and finally your jaw and neck.

Still do not forget, feel ‘the grain’ so to avoid those nasty razor bumps and ingrown hair, because an electric razor is still like an ordinary shaver which you hand-handle it still gives you deplorable consequences when you shave wrongly.

When you are done with shaving those areas look at yourself intently at the mirror, inspect every nook and cranny for missed spots. Are there unshaven hairs? Are there hairs unevenly shaven? If that is the case apply again your electric razor until they are uniformly cut and shaven.

Third Step is to Apply Aftershave to Your Shaven Area and Clean your Electric Shave

After shaving you must, again must, apply aftershaves. Aftershaves are essential as it moisturizes your parched skin during the shave (Yes the electric shaver causes dry skin, because it becomes hot after a long time of shaving) it also keeps away those nasty bacteria to nestle in your wide open pores after shaving.

Also if the skin needs maintenance after shaving, the electric shaver also needs maintenance. Those nasty hairs which you have cut will not clean themselves out of your electric razor all by themselves; hence you have the duty to your razor. Blow or clean away those hairs which are cluttered on the razors of your electric razor. Apply lubricant (consult the manual of your electric razor for the type of lubricant and how to apply the lubricant on your electric razor) to your razor so that the mechanism inside will still work pristinely, and not give you problems on the next shave. Additionally, if your electric razor is a year old already, replace the blades with new ones; because dull razors will not cut instead it will only give you an ugly shave.

So the last casing point is to always maintain your shaver! Do not neglect it, be sensitive to it and feel its needs. Treat it like you would your baby and girlfriend.

There you have it my dear audience that is how you use your Electric Shaver or Electric Razor. Follow those very easy steps, because shaving is not complicated; moreover if you are reluctant to use your electric shaver or reluctant to buy an electric shaver, because it is such a complicated apparatus to look at, face value, please breathe in.

Remember my dear audience that the philosophy behind the Electric Razor is to make shaving easier; thus, it was made to replace your handheld razors, so stop your reluctance and buy one to replace your old fashioned razors.

Good Day!

How To Improve Your Chess Game – Improvement Tips

When they read a book advocating intense tactical training like Rapid Chess Improvement by Michael De La Maza, they shove everything else to the side and start the grueling tactics training.

Almost mid-way through the tactical training, however, the news that Jeremy Silman’s How To Re-Asses Your Chess 4th Edition has been released and read all of the excellent reviews about the book. Forgetting the commitment they have made to study tactics intensely, they grab the book and start to devour the chess wisdom from IM Silman.

There are times when in the absence of the right kind of guidance our talents wither. Since they don’t know how to properly irrigate and fertilize this plant of talent, this get withered away. Remember that like any other discipline, chess also needs your unwaivering devotion. The young boys normally don’t know how to utilize their free time, especially those who have the potentials. Follow the guidelines given ahead and become a good chess player.

The often given advice to play against stronger players has two distinct drawbacks. Firstly, it is discouraging if you invariably lose. Secondly, it is painful boring for the opponent if the different in skill is great. The strong player would be too polite to tell you this, but will find some excuse to stop playing. To fore stat this, ask the opponent to give you a handicap (give you odds in the chess parlance) e.g. to remove a Knight, a Rook, a Rook plus Knight, or even the Queen. Once the right odds found, both players can have exciting game. When removing a Knight or a Rook as a handicap, convention decrees that it shall be the one on the Queen’s wing.

Another kind of handicap is possible with the use of chess clocks. The expert can play with a very short time limit, his opponents at a much greater one. If the difference in skill is not too wide, this sort of handicap is better, as there is no alteration of the starting position. If the difference in skill is very great, it is a good idea to use both systems.

There are times when we are free or bored and don’t understand what to do to pass the time. Chess comes to our rescue. We just need an opponent who will play with us and then we enjoy playing the game. But what if there is no one around to play a game of chess with you; or the people around you doesn’t have free time and are too busy doing their chores? What will you do then? Who will then play chess with you? Your computer! Yes, you read it right. Your computer will play chess with you. But how can my computer play chess with me? It’s simple. Just get yourself a chess software, install it in your computer and you are ready to play chess with your computer.

Focus, focus, focus! I’m sure you saw that coming. We have heard that time in time again, BUT have you really taken the time to focus on one aspect of chess until you really are proficient at it?

when you have decided to read a book or a course that is useful for your chess improvement, make a note…NOT just a mental one BUT a written note that you will read that book from cover to cover and understand it DEEP enough to apply the ideas in your games before you pick another book.

Any good chess book will contribute something to help you improve in chess. It’s your job to make sure you absorb it. 10 half-read chess books are NOT better than a chess book read and understood to the fullest.

The young learners are advice not to rely heavily on chess problems to acquire mastery in this game. These problems are as removed from as crossword puzzles are from literature. Surely, they bone one’s power of visualization of the moves. Play as many actual games as possible and solve chess problem to keep your mind alert in the chess-sense. Remember in chess the object of the game is to defeat the opponent, the means by which this end is achieve or the time is takes, being unimportant. In problems, however, the opponent represents by time. Mate must be effect with in the stipulated number of moves. Since the position given in the problems is frequently quizotic, most of the seasoned chess players dismiss then as situation unworthy of consideration.
