The Best Body Groomers
Did you know that the U.S. market for men’s personal care products is worth $2.7 billion annually? That’s a lot of razors and hair gels, but it doesn’t tell the whole story. Men are becoming more discerning when it comes to their grooming products, and they demand quality, functionality, and value in their purchases. In other words, if you like the beard trend and have been growing your facial hair out, now is a great time to start shopping for the best body groomer for your unique needs as a man. There are many different types of body groomers on the market today. They come in electric or manual models with various attachments for nose hairs, ears, sideburns, eyebrows (or any combination of those places). The best body groomer for you will be one that meets your unique shaving or trimming needs and is also easy to use at home or on the go. Here are some things to keep in mind when shopping around:
Manual or electric?
Body groomers come in both manual and electric varieties. While both can be used to groom any part of your body, there are some significant differences between the two that you’ll want to keep in mind as you make your decision. Electric body groomers are more powerful and will be able to trim through thicker and denser hair, whereas manual groomers work better on smaller and thinner areas. If you have particularly thick or dense hair on your chest, back, or any other part of your body, an electric groomer would be a better choice than a manual one. Electric groomers also tend to include additional features like a vacuum for hair collection, which can be very helpful when trimming or shaving other parts of your body like your chest, back, or legs. If you are going to use your body groomer in a wet environment, like the shower, an electric groomer would also be a better choice since water and manual tools don’t mix well together. Keep in mind, however, that while electric groomers can be used in the shower, most are not waterproof and shouldn’t be submerged in water.
Blade type and length
Depending on the type of groomer you have, you’ll have different types of blades. If you have an electric groomer with a rotating blade, keep in mind that is the most common type of grooming blade and can be used for everything from stubble to full-on man scaping. If you have a manual groomer, keep an eye out for models with a sharp stainless steel blade that can cut through hair effectively. While it’s always a good idea to keep blades clean and free of hair for maximum efficiency, it’s especially important for those who use manual grooming tools. A blade length can also be important, especially for those who are looking to groom their face. Most face grooming blades are between 1.5 and 2.5 millimeters in length, which is generally enough to do the trick without shaving too close and causing irritation. Keep in mind, though, that the length will vary depending on the type of groomer and intent of the blade.
Body parts you want to target
Different grooming tools are designed for different parts of your body. Some blades can be adjusted to different lengths, so if you have a groomer with a rotating blade, you can extend the length to achieve a closer shave. If you want to groom your face, keep in mind that a blade length of 3-4 millimeters is enough to trim some hair without shaving it off completely. If you prefer to keep hair on your chest or back, blades of 6-8 millimeters are probably a good length for you. Beards can be groomed with a variety of different tools, from nose trimmers to detail blades on your face groomer. Keep in
