The best tips for a closer, cleaner shave:
Take a warm shower or wash your face before shaving to help soften the hair and open up the pores.
No one's facial hair grows in exactly the same direction. You should always shave in the same direction of the hair growth.
Apply an even layer of the shaving cream across the areas to be shaved for a uniform hair removal.
It's always helpful to have a fresh blade in your razor and a 'disinfectant' shaving cream to make sure the razor and the shaving is clean.
Shave with the grain in cartridges and rinsing often between strokes.
For straight razors, shave once with the grain, rinse, and then against the grain. For a safer shave without nicks and cuts, try keeping the razor at a 30 degree angle or above.
Rinse off the face with lukewarm water at first and then splash with cold water to close the pores and prevent razor bumps, also promoting hair growth.
Choosing the razor:
Cartridge are the most prefered for their ease of use, though experts suggest straight razors for a healthier and cleaner shave. Electric razors use a tug-and-cut technology, which is not very good for your skin. On the other hand, cartridges have a lot of friction and can cause razor rash. But, straight razors and safety razors use clean cuts, which are smoother on the skin and better for you.
However, it ultimately comes down to your personal preference and comfort, used with a disinfecting shaving cream, your shaving experience can be safe and much healthier, no matter what razor you use.
Dettol shaving creams serve as a protective cushion between the razor and your skin, for a closer shave without irritation. It also nourishes and leaves the skin moisturized and not dry.
