Electric shavers are preferable for teenage boys because they are less harsh on the skin. They also prevent unnecessary cuts and nicks that often happen when boys use a razor. To ensure a clean shave a rotary electric shaver is best. It is also advisable to select a cordless shaver with a flexible head because it helps yield a closer shave in curved areas of the face.
