Basic shaving can be quick and easy. Just pick up a razor and drag it across your face until the stubble’s gone. A really good shave, on the other hand, requires a little more effort and know-how.

Even if you’ve been shaving for years, you might learn something, from someone who’s been shaving for decades, about what you need to do to get the best shave possible.  We wanted to discuss how to demystify some of the myths on shaving!

Myth vs. Fact

The following myths about shaving have been circulating for years. Here are the real facts to set the shaving record straight:

Myth: The age at which you begin to shave influences the amount of hair you will have on your legs and underarms.

Fact: These factors are determined strictly by heredity. Early experiences with shaving coincide with the natural increase in hair growth resulting from puberty.

Myth: Shaving promotes darker, thicker or faster re-growth of hair on legs and underarms.

Fact: Since shaving removes hair on the surface of the skin, it doesn’t affect the color or the thickness of the hair. After an area has been shaved, the hair shafts start to emerge from the follicle, so your hair looks and feels coarse and bristly. If you allow the hair to grow out, it will take on its original appearance and texture.

Myth: A tan can be removed by shaving.

Fact: Tanning occurs at the lower levels of your skin, where the skin’s pigment cells are located. Razor blades never come in contact with these cells. Shaving can actually “polish” your skin and give it a healthy glow. You’ll improve the look of your tan by removing flaky surface skin cells that give your skin a dull appearance.

I shave every day and I am fairly good at it. It is the same as brushing my teeth and takes about the same amount of time. I just use shaving foam or gel and a Schick razor. I don’t  understand some men’s fascination with high-tech, high-cost shaving gear or, even worse, ultra low-tech gear like a straight razor. It’s a simply a chore to be done with a Schick blade should be enough for anyone. I like the fact that shaving is a good way to clean your face and give you a type of microderm abrasion that is good for your skin. I don’t like it when I use a razor longer than I should and it drags or cuts me.

This day in age you just sometimes have to capture the moment… if you want a talk show grab that iphone or check out a samsung mirrorless 4k camera and get filming… Who knows maybe one day – you’ll get your own show… I started DaDaRocks on a whim and boy has that paid off!

For about a year one night a week I’d stay up review some current events and bounce ideas off my cohost over the phone.  The next night we’d setup some webcams and video chat using skype (along with a skype recording software).  That recording was then edited up and uploaded to vimeo… the results were great – we had thousands attend a live stream, those videos were replayed thousands of time. Here are some brief tips…

Remember on most talk shows we want to see that suave look… we want that perfect shave… we want that cutting comedy.

To look suave for your big moment get the perfect shave with Schick Hydro®!

Check out the @SchickHydro® Tumblr site #MakeItEpic

lnp-ted-glasses (1)Whether it’s a night out on the town or being the dad rooting for your child at their youth sports event, you really can’t go wrong with a smooth shave and look of perfection and excellence.  So, I spent the day at a luncheon celebrate the retirement of a life long friend.  It’s great to be honored and appreciated, while you’re still here and have all your faculties.

During the evening – I put on my chauffeur cap for my daughter to take her to birthday – cheer leading event – basketball game and volleyball practice.  It’s just a day in the life of your average dad.

Lately, I’ve enjoyed the new @SchickHydro® Tmblr site. It’s a very slick site & blogging platform for people, businesses and brands. It also acts as a social media network whereby people can quickly and easily share all sorts of content: images, video, audio and short pieces of writing.

You might not know, but Tumblr is second only to Facebook in terms of engagement and the amount of time that people spend on the site.  It also provides with regards to search visibility, mobile friendliness and general popularity online could still make this one social media site worth experimenting with.

@SchickHydro® and the Studio App #MakeItEpic

IMG_1575As a Dad – our daily lives move at a pace that I’m at basketball, swimming or soccer practice – when I’m not in not in downtown Manhattan at work and spending lots of time commuting back and forth to Long Island.

I’ve recently received the Schick Hydro® 5 product. Since, I usually shave not only my beard, but also my head – I’m usually critical on the life of each blade. After 3 or 4 shaves, the lubricating strip would disintegrate therefore leaving the blade useless. Today was my 5th shave with the same blade and I am amazed that this shave is as close as the first! The Schick Hydro® blade is an absolutely amazing product.

IMG_1579Last weekend – the NBA All-Star game was held in New York City, talk about a buzz in our area. However, my family and friends were attending my daughter’s CYO All-Star basketball tournament. My daughter racked up 14points and 19 rebounds was named the Most Valuable Player.   I would be lying if I said it wasn’t a proud moment as a parent – and equally emotional. As you can see – some of these moments were captured, shared and using the Studio App.

We’re no different than any family – we’re spread throughout the east and west coast, but being able to design these pictures / moments were exciting and fun.
