Young Man Using Shaving Cream Brush

5 Steps for the Best Shave Ever

Transform your daily shave into a pleasurable experience in just 5 easy steps.

Step 1: Warm Water

Shave after you shower or use warm water to thoroughly wet your face before shaving. No time for a shower? No problem! Apply a warm, wet towel to your face for a few minutes. This first step is very important because it will help soften your hair and open your pores.

Step 2: Use a Pre Shave Oil

Want your razor to glide over your skin? Be sure to use a highly emollient pre shave oil. Select a high-quality pre shave oil that will have the right formulation for your skin type so that it won’t cause you to break out or leave your skin feeling greasy.

Step 3: Application

For the best shave ever, it’s critical that you use a badger hair shaving brush when applying the shaving cream or if using a shaving soap. A high-quality shaving brush is the most effective way to guarantee a smooth, painless shave. The bristles gently exfoliate the skin, removing anything coming between your whiskers and the razor. Sweep the brush in a circular motion over your face to lift the hair up and away from the skin. This will ensure the closest shave possible without irritating your skin.

Step 4: Shaving

Now that you’ve completed the necessary preparation steps, you are ready for your razor. It’s important that you always use a sharp blade and rinse it often. Start by shaving in the direction of hair growth. For stubborn hair, reapply shaving cream and repeat shaving in sideways motion, using small strokes to prevent irritation. Around the neck area, where hair grows in different directions, run fingers along neck to feel and follow the pattern.

Step 5: After Shave

So, you’ve followed all of our steps and are ready to start your day, right? Wrong! Don’t forget to seal and protect your freshly shaven skin with a light after shave cream designed to penetrate the skin quickly and easily. Once you’ve applied your after shave cream, you are ready to face the day.
