closest shave

Whether you love or hate shaving, these shaving tips will help you get a closest shave each time you put that razor against your skin.

1. Wash your face

A warm shower will open up your pores and follicles, allowing your hair to protrude as much as possible.

2. Use a face wash made for men before you shave

The most important step of shaving comes even before you shave. If your skin is not clean and prepared, you will get a terrible shave. Use a men’s face wash on your skin and neck before you shave to cleanse away any dead skin cells, oil, or grime that may impair the razor from getting as close as possible to your skin.

3. Use a single blade

Sure, the thought of a razor with 11 blades sounds really cool, but in reality, your skin hates it. Start using a single blade dispensable razor or even better, a safety razor.

4. Apply shaving cream with a shave brush

 It builds a thicker lather that’ll raise your whiskers, letting you cut closer to the root.

5. Shave with the grain

At least the first time. If you don’t mind the potential irritation, relather and shave again, this time going against the grain.
