‘I’m a Dermatologist, and This Is the Only Type of Razor I Use To Shave My Body’


It’s not that anyone needs to shave their body, but if you do use a razor, it’s with the desire for smooth (and unscathed) skin.

Now, I’ve have enough scaly dry shaves to know how necessary it is to prevent strawberry legs. But if you’re someone who picks razors of the three-to-five blades variety (and honestly, that’s largely what’s offered), it’s wild to think we could’ve kept it simple the entire time. In fact, when I checked in with Nava Greenfield, MD, of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City, she generally agreed with Dr. Gohara’s advice that the best type of razor isn’t necessarily one with a trillion blades.

“This depends on your skin,” says Dr. Greenfield. “Some skin types would do best with a single blade razor, if you are prone to ingrown hairs.”

About Schweiger Dermatology Group

Schweiger Dermatology Group was founded to help make excellent dermatology care accessible throughout the Northeast. In 2010, Dr. Eric Schweiger started the practice with a single location in Midtown Manhattan. When he saw the need for high-quality dermatology care that did not require weeks or months of waiting to see a qualified provider, his vision of a multi-location practice was born.
