How To Master The Perfect Shave
Mastering the perfect shave comes with practice and technique. Here are the five most important factors that you must consider when doing your shaving routine. Some might say that this is common sense, but it is definitely not common practice.
1. SHARP BLADE
2. CLEAN FACE
3. LAYER SHAVING CREAM
4. SHAVE IN CORRECT DIRECTION
Remember to shave in the direction of hair growth, always keeping the skin taut at all times. (E.g. Pull to the north, shave to the south) Take your time and shave carefully over sensitive areas. For a closer shave, carefully shave against or side on, to the grain of hair growth and always re-apply shave cream or gel first.
Immediately rinse with cold water to close the pores and remove any traces of shave cream or lather.
