Shaving Your Beard Off To Prevent The Coronavirus | Does It Really Help?

Having Facial Hair - Does It Really Increase Your Chances Of Catching The Coronavirus?

Nurse with beard during coronavirusShaving your beard will NOT prevent you from getting the coronavirus but it will increase the effectiveness of protective equipment such as face masks. This is especially important to those who are working in the medial sector and are wearing face masks on a daily basis to protect themselves and others around them. Some NHS staff have already been advised to shave their beards off to ensure they are properly protected and many of them have already done so and have taken this to Twitter to show off their new look using the hashtag #ReachForTheRazor

For those who are not working in the medical sector but have been asked to, or want to wear a face mask to protect themselves, should also consider shaving their beard off during this worldwide pandemic.

How To Use A Safety Razor

Watch our How To Shave with a Safety Razor video tutorial. In this video, Brian shows how to achieve a smooth shave with a safety razor.

  • Insert a sharp blade into the razor.

  • After applying a pre-shave treatment and your shaving soap or cream to your face, dip the safety razor into warm water and begin to shave with the razor at around a 30° angle to your face. We recommend that you shave twice with the grain and once against the grain.

  • Be sure to regularly rinse the blade in warm water between passes to stop it clogging.
