Secret 1: The Way of the Circle
Apply your shaving cream or gel in a circular motion, against the grain of the hair. This softens and lifts your hair and allows for a close, less irritating shave.
Secret 2: Smooth and Short Wins the Shave
Keep the strokes of your razorblade smooth and short for a precise shave.
Secret 3: Go With the Growth
To shave your facial hair, you must know your facial hair. Or what direction it grows in, at least. Look closely at the direction the hair grows on your cheeks, chin and neck. Then shave in the direction of hair growth.
Secret 4: Finish Cold
After shaving with warm water, finish by splashing your face with cold water. It will soothe and cool your skin while it rinses off the shaving cream.
