How to shave – Basic steps to achieve a smooth, clean shave

Although there is no right and wrong way to shave, you can use a good technique to give yourself the closest possible shave and avoid nicks and cuts at the same time. Keep these simple basics in mind to achieve a smooth, clean shave.

Hydrate

The secret to a smooth shave is to make sure your face and hair is moistened well before you shave. Hydrating opens the pores on your skin, cleaning them and it makes your hair softer and easier to cut. Use a face wash or a scrub that will effectively buff away oil, dirt and dead skin as they block the razor’s path. The most effective way to hydrate your skin is a hot shower before you shave, but rinsing your face in warm water for 3 minutes will suffice.

Use the right tools well

Choose your shaving equipment well. Use a good hydrating shaving gel and make sure your razor is sharp. While shaving, use light strokes- applying pressure leads to nicks, irritation and skin redness. Pull your skin taut and shave with the grain. For an extremely close shave, you may go against the grain. Keep your razor’s blades free from excessive buildup of hair and shaving foam by rinsing it under warm water frequently between strokes.

The devil is in the details

Your chin and lips are the hardest to shave and are vulnerable too. Deal with these tricky areas by allowing the shaving cream to soak into these areas for a little longer to soften the hair further. You could curl you lips over your teeth to stretch the skin and make shaving it easier. Shape your sideburns properly, make sure they are symmetrical. Ensure that no specks of hair are left out- even in places like under your nose.

The perfect ending

Make sure you take care of your razor when you are done shaving. Rinse it well in warm water and shake off the excess. Do not wipe it or hit it against the sink. This could damage the fine edge or cause the blades to shift. Store your razor in a place where it is not susceptible to damage. Rinse your own face with cool water too and pat it dry. Use a good quality aftershave to keep your skin moisturized and smelling good.
