One of the world's leading barbers says there are ways to double the life of your razor.
Master barber Perry Gastis said consumers struggle to find the best razor.
"There are good razors, bad razors, cheap razors, expensive razors," he said. Gastis said people will save money on a 12-pack of disposable razors, but he doesn't recommend them. "It's a harsh blade," he said. "You need to press very hard. It takes layers of skin off."
Gastis recommends the five-blade razor.
While it's pricier, you can double the life of the blade by using lukewarm water, he said. Hot or cold water warps the blade, he said. He also recommends leaving the blade in jojoba oil after each shave.
