10 Simple Tips to Better Shaving

  1. Shave during or after a shower. The warm steam makes it easier to shave. If you do not have time for a shower, apply a warm wet towel to your face or splash your face with warm water for a few minutes before shaving.
  2. Work-in the shaving cream or shaving soap into your face before shaving. Give it a minute or two. Too many men just slap on the cream and shave. 
  3. If you have a very heavy beard and never seem to get a really close shave, use a pre-shave.
  4. Never, never use a dull razor blade. It just destroys your skin even if you use a very lubricating shaving cream. 
  5. Avoid disposable razors. They are flimsy, bad for the environment and bad for your face. Disposable razors don't provide as good a shave as a solid well crafted shaving razor You use this tool every day - invest in a quality instrument. 
  6. Men are always amazed at the huge improvement in their shave when using a shaving brush. A shaving brush creates a wonderful, creamy lather; gently removes the dead skin from your face before shaving; and helps raise the beard hairs for your razor to easily shave. Use a shaving brush to apply a good shaving cream or shaving soap. Brush in a circular motion to lift the hairs off your face. 
  7. Do not use shaving foams and gels from a can or with numbing ingredients like benzocaine or menthol. Try our selection of carefully chosen shaving cream and gel in tubes and jars with non-irritating and soothing ingredients.
  8. If you need to go over any areas, be sure to reapply more lather as you shave.
  9. Most men shave in the direction of the grain to prevent razor burn, ingrown hairs, and irritation.
  10. After shaving, rinse with cool water and then apply a soothing aftershave palm WITHOUT irritating alcohol. A moisturizing aftershave lotion or gel will help your skin look healthier, better, and even younger.
