What is a body groomer?
What does a body groomer not do? They can be used to give your side burns a quick trim, or leave you with a Calvin-Klein-ad-worthy bare chest. You have the option of choosing.
Although they are primarily hair clippers, modern technology and a variety adjustable heads allow them to be used on other parts of the body, such as the abdomen, armpits, legs and family jewels.
They are different from your beard trimmer in that they have larger blades. The larger blades of a device that is suitable for the body will be able to tackle multiple areas without slicing too close to sensitive skin.
Can my beard trimmer be used on my body?
It would be unhygienic to use the same hair removal tool to trim your moustache as your misters. Many of these models have separate beard trimmer attachments so that you don’t accidentally use the same blade for both areas. Beard trimmers have longer blades to catch more hair, while body and pubic hair trimmers have a shorter blade.
How to select a body groomer
- Capability: Make sure your device has all the attachments you need to do any grooming that you might want. Multipurpose models are common on our list. They can clean up everything, from your eyebrows to the under-the-belt. You should also check how many lengths are included in the beard guard box.
- Waterproofing: Showering can be a great way to clean up hair. You don’t have to be a fan dry trimming. Before you buy, ensure that your device is water-resistant.
- Battery life: The more you can groom your body in one session, the longer the battery life. Also, groomers that have more juice are more powerful than their battery-operated counterparts. They also make it easier to travel with.
