Shaving is a part of a man's daily routine. Whether it is the dry shaving or wet, it is a man's grooming method and style. There are pros and cons of dry and wet shaving and we at Boldsky suggest to you which you should follow according to your skin type.

According to dermatologists, the traditional wet shaving is relatively the best. This is because the soap or foam which is used to make a lather for the shave helps to make the skin soft and supple after use.

On the other hand, with wet shaving one will need ample of patience, as it requires you to shave twice over the area and this again depends on the coarse of the hair. When it comes to dry shaving it is much healthier and hygienic. However, dry shaving does not require you to lather foam on your face which again is time consuming and the best for the working class of men.

So, if your confused as to which to use, whether dry o wet shaving, take a look at these pros and cons of both the methods and then decide which of them is the best and convenient for your skin:
