The High Cost Of Shaving Your Entire Life

June 2nd, 2014

If you’re like most people, you don’t have unlimited income, and you’re frequently looking for ways that you can cut money without sacrificing the quality of your life. All too often, people do this and only consider the big costs, but things that you’re constantly replacing can quickly sap away your paycheck. What’s one culprit you might have overlooked? The Cost of Shaving.

Cost of Shaving

Shaving is an activity that requires a lot of consumables — blades, shaving cream, after shave and products to protect sensitive skin just to name a few. Replacement blades can cost $20, and those blades won’t last forever when you’re a woman who shaves an average 12 times per month. Consider the cost of water and maybe even Band-Aids, and things aren’t looking so good. Whether your boss requires a clean shave or you’re a woman who loves to have silky smooth legs, shaving hacks away at your bank account as well as your hair.

Shaving Takes Time

But the cost that comes with shaving doesn’t have to be, and we’re not just talking about the monetary cost. Shaving takes up an average of 10 minutes per day, which is time you could spend at the gym, with your best friend or enjoying a tasty dessert. Instead, you’re hacking away at your hair with a sharp blade. It just doesn’t make sense. It’s not like alternatives don’t exist, either. Laser hair removal, for example, will remove the hair once and for all. After a few appointments, you won’t have to shave anymore, and you can keep your time and money all for yourself.

It Ain’t Always Pretty

Plus, shaving comes with some nasty side effects sometimes. Anyone who has ever had to deal with razor burn, ingrown hair or an infected follicle knows that these things are as uncomfortable as they are unsightly. In your aim to be beautiful or presentable, the very thing you do might be making it worse! No one wants to keep reaching for tiny toilet paper squares or Band-Aids to cover up the sight of shaving cut.

Isn’t it time to ditch the razor for good?
