Aaron is asked a question about shaving with your non-dominant hand and the benefits it can bring
Craig Dodds, from the UK, asks:
“I read that with wet shaving you can get your memory to allow you to shave with your less dominate hand. I have found that without really trying I tend to do about 95% of shaving with my lest dominate hand – my left. Is this always the way, have been like that since I started wet shaving just over a month ago.”
It is certainly beneficial to be able to shave your face with the non-dominant hand. In fact, many experts and shavers advocate using the non-dominant hand for that side of your face. (i.e. your left hand for the left side of your face, etc.) because it helps maintain the proper angle and pressure. While shaving that high a percentage of your face with your non-dominant hand is unusual, if it works for you then by all means go for it! As the old saying goes “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
Cheers, and Smooth Shaving!
