Edgar haircut nearby, Ralph cut nearby, or just a little edgar, are some of the most popular ways to trim the beard for men, but they’re not always the best way to get rid of it.
According to a new study published in the American Journal of Dermatology, shaving at the edges could cause serious skin irritation and lead to irritation of the skin itself.
It also may not be the best approach to removing stubborn hair follicles from the beard, and may also result in a beard that’s not quite cut at all.
“It is generally recommended to shave at the edge of the beard to reduce inflammation and damage to the skin,” study author Dr. Robert E. N. Baskin told The Huffington Post.
“However, in general, the facial hair may become more visible to the naked eye as the beard becomes longer and thicker.”
The study found that cutting the beard at the base of the head can be the safest way to do this, but shaving the beard along the sides, along the top of the neck, or at the tip of the chin can cause irritation of nearby skin follicles and can result in irritation of surrounding skin.
The researchers did find that shaving at a hairline may help with shedding the beard and also result at the same time in less irritation.
Basking at the hairline helps remove excess moisture and may even help with cutting the edges off of the hair.
“The beard can be shaved at the tips of the ears, chin, and jaw, and at the top and sides of the face, which is a safer option than cutting the facial hairs at the end of the top portion of the facial area,” the researchers write.
The results of this study were “a preliminary evaluation” and do not offer any advice for men with beard problems.
However, Dr. Basksi said that the results do indicate that shaving the facial follicles at the ends of the body may be a better choice for men than cutting it at the bottom.
He also noted that men who shave their face can avoid the problem of irritation and skin irritation from the facial skin.
“Men can shave their faces with a shaving razor, and their facial hair is the same length as their head,” Dr. N Baskins told The Washington Post.
“[However], it’s a good idea to have the facial wash on your hands or to shave with a razor blade or shaving cream.”
