To most men, shaving is considered to be a really easy task. All they have to do is: grab a razor, pass on their face wherever they see small hair, then wash their face, and tara! The shaving process is over. However, this quick process is not as good for your skin as you think. There are some basic things you need to learn in order to have the perfect shaving experience.
Take your time in what you are doing
Instead of rushing and finishing your shave in 5 minutes, take some time to prep your skin and make it ready for a shave. In fact, the quick shaving process is one of the main reasons why your skin looks and feels bad. The first thing to do before you start, is wash your face. Face cleansers are a good way to soften the protein in the hairs. After that, leave the cleanser on your face for several minutes so that the pores can absorb it. Next, put a shaving cream or gel on your face, this process helps making a one-pass shave possible.
Use a Brush
Do not use your fingers to swipe the shaving cream on your face. Instead, invest your money on a brush and use it to push the cream into the hair and make it much easier to shave.
In addition, when it comes to razors, do not be fooled by the commercials that try to sell you a multi blade razor, a single blade razor can work just as fine. The important thing is, you should look for a blade that is sharp enough due to its ability to make your shaving process easy and hair free.
Hot first, Cold second
The key to having a good shave is to keep the face war and moisture. This is why, the best time to shave is when you get out from a hot shower, or when you are showering. After the shaving is done, rinse your face with cold water so that the pores can shrink and close.
