5-Step Guide for a Smooth Shave

It’s so simple to shave! Shaving shouldn’t feel like a chore or leave your skin feeling rough. It is worth investing a little bit of time and effort in your face to have a pleasant experience and achieve great results every single time.

For a closer and more comfortable shave, please read this post for five simple tips below.

1: Wash

Use a good quality cleanser or gentle scrub to clean your face. The bristles will be softened by giving your stubble a thorough wash and soaking in warm water. It is easier to cut wet stubble than dry. This means that there will be less tugging, less irritation, and more comfort. It is best to shave in a warm shower or bath. This will save you time and help you be more efficient.

Tip: If scrub is not designed for daily use, don’t use it every day. Over exfoliating can make your skin more oily as it attempts to absorb the moisture loss from the scrub.

2: Massage In

Apply your shave cream, cream, oil, or serum to your stubble and beard. The bristles will be easier to shave if you massage the shave prep into them.

Shave prep creates a thin protective barrier between your skin and the razor blade. This is the part of the shave preparation that does the most important work. The only thing that a lather does is obscure your view.

Tip: Do you want foam? Get some foam! Shave gels a damp shaving brush to create a lather, then apply the cream to your face.

3: Shave

No matter what razor you choose, a sharp and clean blade is essential! Replace your blade if it feels blunt before you start shaving.

Could you slow down and take it slowly? Do not rush.

Do not press too hard.

To prevent clogging, rinse the razor in warm soapy water frequently to get the best bristles every time. Razor burn, redness, and rashes can be caused by shaving in the opposite direction to hair growth. It would help if you shaved in the direction that your hair grows. This will decrease tugging and irritation.

This is generally down on the cheeks/chin and upon the neck. To determine the direction of your hair’s growth, you can run your finger through your stubble.

Tip: Apply your shave cream, cream and beard oil for men, or serum to your stubble and beard.

Be extra careful when shaving the neck.

Concentrate on gentle strokes and thorough washing when dealing with heavy stubble or multiple days’ growth.

If you feel the closeness of your skin is a problem, apply your shave preparation again and shave carefully across the grain (XTG).

Tip: A few missing bristles are all that separates a good shave and a great one. Before you rinse, use your fingertips to check for missing bristles.

4. Rinse

Cool water and a good scrub will remove any shave prep or shaving debris.

It helps to close the pores of your skin, resulting in natural skin protection.

Next, dry your face with a towel. Don’t rub your skin, as it can irritate.

5: Moisturize

Even a well-executed shave with great preparation and a sharp razor can still strip your skin of its natural defenses. However, the skin is incredible and will eventually regain its natural moisture balance. Applying a moisturizer or post-shave balm immediately after shaving will trap moisture and accelerate its natural recovery.

Use a moisturizer or balm with UVA/UVB filters. The sun and wind can cause severe skin damage, so these products will help protect your skin and prevent premature aging.

Tip: Aftershave should not be applied to your skin. Aftershave is made primarily from alcohol. It can dry your skin, just like soap. Apply aftershave to your neck or wrists, and you can wear a fragrance or after shave lotion.

Tip: To ensure the longest possible life of your razor blades, shake off any excess water after using them. Then let your cartridge dry naturally. If you have any questions, please get in touch with us. Blade guard or Handle holders them to keep your blades in top condition.
