Everyone Accidentally Shaves Too Much

Folks, a friend of mine was recently shaving his eyebrows, and normally he shaves those on a Level 3, but on that particular day, he forgot, and end up shaving those eyebrows on a Level 1.

Now, this got me thinking about you and your problems.

While I say in my famous book that you can stop having your problems by simply stopping having them, I think it’s also fair to say that we all make mistakes. None of us gets it right the first time. Some of it get it more right than others more of the time, and end up with their own blog on the internets as a result, but those rare wonderful people are rare. And wonderful.

So, don’t get too hard on yourself. If, when facing your problems, you accidentally shave at a Level 1, it’s alright, just allow time for it to heal and things to grow back for you. And next time, you can approach it by saying, “Okay, I’m going to start shaving my body hair at a Level 3, and then move to the areas after that where I need to shave at a Level 1.” And I might do that because if you make the mistake of not switching down, it’s far less serious than making the mistake of not switching up.

Finally, if and when you need to shave the nethers, use a fresh razor. Because when you’re approaching your problems, you can reduce the possibility of mistakes by being smart. And in the end, also use a fresh razor for that.

    Dear Dr. Matt,

    I feel like I know your friend well. I always feel like I’m shaving a little bit too close, coming too near the skin when I just mean to do a little trim. Thanks for the good advice and reassurance.

    Tell your friend I hope his / her eyebrows grow back soon. God I hope it’s a her so she can disguise her mistake with an eyebrow pencil.
