Shaving technique


  • Use shaving cream or gel ,
  • Have shaving after a warm shower
  •  Putting a warm wash cloth on your face before you shave.
  • For a sensitive skin, scented products like aftershave can irritate it.
  • Make short, light razor strokes in the same direction as your hair grows.
  • Rinse the blade after every few strokes so gel and hair don't build up.
  • When using a new razor, try not to push down as hard as you did with your old one .
  • A sharp razor not need much pressure to get a clean shave.
  • Leave yourself plenty of time to shave so you can be careful and not rush through it.
  • Shaving when there's not enough hair growth can irritate the skin.
