THE PERFECT SHAVE

THE PERFECT SHAVE
Boys it's as easy as 1, 2, 3. Here are some basic "do's" for your shaving.

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS
1 - Be sure your skin, tools, and water are nice and warm (I recommend comfortably hot). Never shave "cold."

2 - Shave in the shower. It should be the LAST thing you do. Shampoo, wash face and body, and rinse. Use a mild facial scrub to lift beard (or other body hair) to prep for shaving. This makes an easier/softer cut.

3 - AVOID CHEAP RAZOR BLADES. The single blade cheapies are the worst. I like a double or triple blade with a comfort gel pad.

4 - NEVER SHAVE UP when shaving under the chin. This is a sure way to get cuts, scrapes and in-grown hairs. Painful!!!

When you shave this way, the steam from the shower softens the beard, the facial scrub has prepped skin & beard, and by shaving LAST, it makes an easier cut with less nicks and ouchies.
