7 Simple Steps to the Perfect Shave

7 Simple Steps to the Perfect Shave

Follow these steps to avoid razor burn, cuts, dryness, and long-term negative effects on your skin.

You’ve been shaving for years, but do you still have issues? You’re not alone. Shaving improperly can lead to irritating razor burn, cuts, and dryness and can even affect the long-term health of your skin.

Follow these 7 simple steps to improve your shave and skin:

  1. Wet skin and facial hair to soften it. A perfect time to shave is right after showering, as your skin will be warm and moist. It will also be free from excess oil and dead skin cells that can clog your razor.
  2. Apply shaving cream with a shave brush. Use a circular motion and apply a small amount of cream to your face. A shaving brush helps to avoid ingrown hairs by lifting the hairs and more evenly coating them with the shaving cream.
  3. Let the shaving cream sit for 2-3 minutes. If you have the time and thicker facial hair, this is an important step, as it will penetrate the hairs and soften them.
  4. Shave in the direction that your hair grows! Also, pull your skin taut. Both will help prevent razor bumps and ingrown hairs.
  5. Rinse the razor with warm water after each swipe. This prevents skin irritation and gives a smoother shave.
  6. After shaving, rinse your face with cold water. Cold water will help reduce any inflammation.
  7. Apply an aftershave lotion. Aftershave lotion will help close your pores and trap in the water to keep your skin hydrated.
