3 Reasons to switch to a safety razor

3 Reasons to switch to a safety razor

Now that summer is quickly approaching it’s time to think about showing those legs again.  On my journey to eliminating plastic, a safety razor was top on my list.   I grew up using a safety razor, so I am familiar with them.   Here are 3 reason that makes a safety razor a viable option for me.

Safety Razor

  • Environmentally Safe
  • Saves Money
  • Eliminate Skin Irritation

Environmentally Safe

My primary reasons for switching to a safety razor is to eliminate plastic. Disposable razors may be convenient, but the plastic is bad for the environment.  A safety razor is stainless steel with a stainless steel blade. Environmentally, a safety razor is buy once and last a lifetime. The cost for a replacement blade is minimum, about 9 cents and they are also safe for the environment.

Saves Money

These days you can get disposable razors at the dollar store.  Cost may not be a factor unless you have a house full of women, which was me growing up with two sisters and my mom.

If you use a razor with a replacement blade, it can get expensive. Eliminating this cost is where you will see a real savings.  Depending on your usage, you can expect to save as much as $200 per year.

Like all products,  a safety razor price can range from $10 to $50.  I purchased Van Der Hagen Safety Razor .  Why wait order yours today.  Click the Safety Razor below and have it delivery to your home today.

A  safety razor  is great for sensitive skin.  Safety razors make cleaner cuts and are less likely to cause ingrown hair.  Shaving with a safety razor means only a single blade comes in contact with the skin, compared to 3 or 4 with a disposable.  A single blade decreases the chance of skin irritation.  

I have also found that hair removal creams can be the cause of skin irritation, which I also avoid using.  If it is strong enough to remove hair, can it really be healthy for your skin? Just saying!

Why the switch?

Switching to a safety razor is environmentally safe, saves money and helps eliminate skin irritation.   The safety razor is an inexpensive solution for a greener and healthier world for the next generation, so why not give it a try. Don’t forget to order your razor today.  Van Der Hagen Safety Razor

Embrace Change – Take a warm bath.

Embrace Change – Take a warm bath.

I love taking a nice long bath to relax and unwind.  I know my sister would say add a glass of wine and you have a perfect date. If a bath is not your normal routine, I recommend you add wine, candles and soft music to make it a perfect “me time celebration”.

Embrace Change – Recycle Something

Embrace Change – Recycle Something

Recycle something by taking something old and make it into something new. My latest project is to take old sweaters and make mittens. I get a lot of great ideas from Pinterest.

If you are not a crafts person, start with recycling your trash.  Each week my recycle can is always fuller that my regular trash.

Embrace Change – Oct 24

Embrace Change – Fast for 24 hours.

Lets fast today.  For some this is a big challenge, so break it down into something more manageable for your lifestyle.  If fasting for 24 hours is to long, then go till noon.  If that is a stretch try just giving up breakfast or eating nothing after sundown.

So often food controls us, lets turn that around and begin to control the food we eat.  If we can conquer this, than we can conquer anything.

Transformation Tip 94 – #livelifefully


No one can truly predict the moment we inhale our first breath or when we will exhale our last breath. The whole concept of life and living fills us with awe and wonder. It is something to be treasured and lived to our fullest potential.

Live Life

In the last few months my family has experienced sudden and unexpected loss of life. It seems our hearts have barely had time to recover between the sorrow that has persistently knocked on our doors. During this time we also have family members that are dealing with terminal and life changing illness. I find myself feeling anxious every time I log onto facebook, receive a text or answer my phone. You see those that have exited our world has not been limited to the very old and sick. Those would have brought intense sorrow but also some degree of understanding. Rather for us it has been our young and vibrant future family and world leaders that left us with no warning and no chance to prepare.

Their departure reminds me of the encouragement my cousin, Ms Vic, said to me as she was preparing to transition from this life; live, nothing else is important, live, don’t worry about credit, money and the cares of life just live life to the fullest. Since her departure I have made a decision to live consciously and on purpose moment by moment. I have set aside any need to judge, condemn or live up to some ideology of what should or should not be. I have determined to make an effort to be present when dealing with those that I love and serve. Yes, I meant to say serve because in my heart and mind I serve each and everyone with whom I connect. Living to me is seeing, being and fully giving of myself selflessly. It is daily encouraging, motivating and igniting faith in others. It’s absorbing, finding and sharing information that enables one to live, love and be better. It is understanding we are all a work in progress. It is knowing that none of us gets to choose when our work is over. It is not knowing what age, what way or when we will take our last breath. It is being comforted that our memories will live on in the life of others. It is knowing that our legacy lies not in what we have done but in whom we have been each and every day in the life of others. Living means we are blessed w

Some lights shine for a fleeting moment, others longer and others brighter; but all leave an impact. So today I want to set aside my sorrow and personal need to grieve. I want to reach into my heart and ponder on the gratitude of having known or been exposed to these wonderful beings. So, although, each of you have made your exit your light and life lives on in me and I will diligently carry the torch of living life fully until time for my exit. Each day I am alive is a day I get a “do over.” I get the chance to #livelifefully! So today I am filled with joy and happiness, and my light just got brighter because of you.

If you have been touched by a recent loss of life please share how you plan to carry on and live life fully at drshelution.com

Much Love and Many Blessings…Namaste!!!
