All It Takes Is Six Steps And High Quality Shaving Products For A Smooth Shave To get the best look, you should couple the high-end shaving devices that you have invested in with the proper shaving techniques. With regards to making a first impression, you only have a few moments. Step One: Completely Moisten Your Face If you thoroughly wet your beard, the razor burn that is ordinarily a problem for many shavers will be eliminated and you will get a smooth shave. Wet hair is easier to cut given that the absorbed moisture makes the hair weak. Some men elect to shave in the shower because of this. Make sure to apply plenty of water to the area to be shaved when shaving if the shower isn't a possibility and before using a razor, hold a moistened towel on your face for several minutes. Step Two: Use Moisturizing Shaving Cream Inexpensive brands of shaving cream from the grocery store foam up. Avoid these foaming creams, as foams enables a lot of air to displace the cream when you want as much contact between the lather and your face as possible. Instead, pick a top-quality cream that provides a nice lather; this lather will hold the whiskers in place and decrease the amount of wear on your shaving blade. For the very best results, carefully spread the lather over the surface of your face and then let it sit for a minute or two. Step Three: Appreciate the Value of the Shaving Brush It may seem silly to get a shaving brush to spread the lather when you can just use your hand. In all honesty, the shaving brush is an indispensable tool. The brush works to lift the hairs, so the blade gets close to the skin. Creating a rich lather is another benefit. Last, but not least, as you use the brush, it will exfoliate dead skin cells on your face. The chance of blemishes and nicks is also decreased by a great brush. Apply the shaving cream in small, circular motions with the brush. Blade Selection Yet another contributor to shaving rash is a dull blade. You will get a nice, close shave with a sharp blade and a high quality razor. A sharp blade will be kinder to your skin than a dull blade will, as in the process of shaving, you usually remove the surface skin. Most authorities recommend that you change or sharpen the blade on your razor between every three to nine shaves. You will need to decide for yourself how many shave you can get from the blade because every man's beard is different. The minute it becomes dull, replace or sharpen your blade. Step Five: Shave in the Direction of the Facial Hair Growth Shaving against the direction of hair growth is a common mistake that some men make. These
