Step 2: Cut
Invest in a good quality razor. Those plastic disposable ones just don’t ‘cut-it’ anymore. They often result in a less than close shave, coupled with skin irritation. Having said that, a good quality razor is useless without good quality blades. You’re not only cutting off the hair, you’re also scraping away a thin layer of skin cells. Depending on how much hair you’re shaving off and how often you’re doing it, you should generally change the blade every 10 to 15 shaves.
It’s also vital to invest in a good quality shaving cream; one that not only cleans but moisturises while it lathers, like Vaseline MENface CLEANSE AND SHAVE
. An effective 2-in 1 cleanse and shave product that reduces friction, making your shave smoother and more manageable.
