When you shave your beard, do you find difference in smoothness and easy cutting of hair between one day and another day. I find shaving becoming hard on days when difficult to digest foods are eaten or when shaving is done before day's nature call (excretion) or body is heavy due to poor exercise. How do you feel?

Thank you friend for your suggestion. I agree totally with your idea. I have noted for implementation. (At present I shave before shower; but I wash my face thoroughly before taking up a shave). In our country, eating anything without a bath, after a shave or haircut is a social taboo. One shower before shave and another shower after shave, needs more water which is scarce. I do not use soaps or creams or lather for shaving. I shave on plain moist beard. I do not use double edged razors/blades. I use a plain traditional blade such as 7'o clock fitted to a razor with only one cover plate. Though this is somewhat unsafe for new persons, habit removes the risk of cuts. While shaving the blade when cutting the hair makes a "kar" "kar" sound, but moves very smoothly. On the day when the skin and body are heavy owing to factors like lack of sleep, indigestion, lack of physical exercise, the "kar" "kar sound increases and smoothness falls. Some people feel that their beards are hard and some others say that beards are silky. What I wished to find out is whether there is any relationship between food habits and hardness of beard. We shall await the views of our other friends, if they have interest on this subject of facial/skin health.
