Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi, basically I can't wet shave, I have to use an electric shaver every few days otherwise I get ingrown hairs and get really sore. So could I have a beard on medical grounds? That would be ideal, or would I have to pretend to be a Sikh or something similar in order to have the option?
  2. I believe you need to set alight to your face with petrol.....twice daily ;)
  3. Actually....your face gets used to wetshaving, and will stop eventually. Use aftershave balm for a while to keep the skin moist, and cool.

    Before you shave wash your face in hot water, then press a hot flannel onto your skin for a while, this opens the skinpores and makes it easier to shave.
  4. Oh, Smudge, plagairism!

  7. Obviously neither of you are actual serving personnel. So kindly do one and leave the answers to REAL soldiers, cheerio.
  8. This question already has a multitude of answers on the thread dedicated to it.

    In future you should conduct a search before posting, had you done this you will have discovered your question has already been answered tenfold.
