Do You Know How to Shave?

Chances are, you don’t.. A regular man throws on shaving cream and drags that razor sharp knife around the face, rinses off. And puts toilet paper where needed.
It’s a lot more complicated than that. Spending just a little bit more effort and time is worth it if you don’t want to look like the Grinch at your first date.

Preparation – very important

To begin with, your skin has to be warm. It’s always best to shave after a hot shower or even better: a nice sauna. But it should be enough to put a warm towel on your face until it starts to cool down.

Now it’s time for your shaving cream.

I don’t recommend shaving foams or gels in tubes, it contains chemicals that cool down your skin and doesn’t make your shaving any better. The chemicals make your hair stiffer. And shortens the lifetime of your razor blades.
Good shaving cream along with a good brush is the best choice. Jack Black Supreme Cream Triple Cushion Shave Lather 8 oz (226 g)

Never shave against your hair, most hair types can’t stand it. This is the most common cause for burns. Shave tiny sections at a time, one at a time. By doing this it’s less likelier that you’ll cut yourself.

After Shaving
The most important action after your shave is to cool down your skin. Splash icy cold water on to your kisser before you put the aftershave on. Make sure you don’t use an aftershave you picked up by the register at your local supermarket. I recommend Jack Blacks products.
