I think my beard grows pretty fast, but I can only shave about every three days. If I shave too frequently, I get a few severely impacted hair follicles, even if I use a fresh blade every time.
Impacted whiskers hurt like a sun’abitch, and are usually a nightmare to extract. If they swell and get infected, then it’s double trouble.

So, it’s every 3 days for me. Personally, I think the “Indiana Jones®” stubble look, works to my advantage anyway.
FTR: I shave with disposable razors and cream. Electric shavers and my skin don’t seem to like one another. I prefer to use Gillette Sensor® and Edge Gel®.
How often do you shave, and what do you use?
