Damn it’s a good thing that what little vanity I ever had about my appearance has disappeared into the same black hole as my sex drive, or I would be seriously bummed.
I used to believe that a lifetime of having what good looks I otherwise possessed marred by a lifelong struggle with obesity, I would be prepped for the cruelties of aging.
Turns out not so much.
Anyway, I am adjusted to having to pluck big, serious hairs from my chin, that’s been happening since I was in my 40’s. (Currently 57…which is so weird…) But the light downy fuzz is bugging me. I associate it with age. the eyebrow razors suck, they don’t cut they just scrape the hell outta my skin, so I’ve just gone for the real deal. Works perfectly.
But my facial skin IS rather tender and fragile, given my advanced age… what is the best substance to protect my skin without interfering with the blade cutting such fine fuzz? I think thick lather would flatten all the fine fuzz and it wouldn’t get cut. But maybe I’m wrong. Am I the only person, male or female, shaving thick peach fuzz vs. serious beard? My skin would thank you for your recommendations for the least brutal, most effective way for me to take up a manly sort of shave… (Hey, goes with my buzz cut… my once waist-length hair got shaved off about 18 months ago, and I can now report that I have not regretted it for one split second. Nor have I missed it. The greatest thing to happen to me grooming wise is being able to stop thinking about my hair at all, except every few weeks running a clipper over it. Heaven!)
