By Dr. Josh Zeichner
My name is Josh Zeichner, and I’m the director of cosmetic and clinical research in the dermatology department of Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.
Like most guys, I’ve had my fair share of problems shaving.
I don’t know anyone who’s received a formal education on how to shave or the tools to use. In fact, I developed my own technique by watching my father and by my own trial and error. With curly hair and a curly beard, I suffered for years from cuts, ingrown hairs, pimples and razor burn. (It never even occurred to me to ask any of my friends about their shaving habits, let alone ask my doctor.)
It was my specialty training in dermatology that gave me a true understanding of the skin and hair. I now appreciate the most effective shaving techniques, how various razors differ and the role of science in it all.
I understand the trials and tribulations guys go through while shaving. As a board-certified dermatologist, I’m here to share my expertise and provide guidance on how to shave. Each week, I’ll give you helpful tips related to your skin and how to shave it.
