A close, clean shave is the cornerstone of a well-groomed appearance. While there are a number of ways to achieve this look, there is only one way to do it right. From prepping your skin to perfecting your technique, here is the perfect shaving routine for men.
Prepping Your Skin
The first step in achieving a close, clean shave is to prep your skin. This means cleansing your face with warm water and Elegance Facial Scrub to remove any dirt, oil, or debris that could clog your razor or irritate your skin. Once your face is clean, it's time to soften your hair. You can do this by either soaking a washcloth in warm water and applying it to your face for a few minutes or by using a pre-shave oil.
Shaving Your Face
Now that your skin is prepped and your hair is softened, it's time to start shaving. Begin by lathering up your Elegance Shaving Gel and apply it to your beard using circular motions. Be sure to cover all of the hair you want to remove. Once your beard is evenly coated, it's time to start shaving. Using short, sweeping strokes, shave with the grain of your hair—that is, in the direction that your hair grows. To avoid irritation, don't apply too much pressure and be sure to rinse your razor frequently.
When you're finished shaving, rinse your face with cold water and apply a post-shave balm or lotion to soothe any irritation. And that's it! By following these simple steps, you can achieve a close, clean shave every time.
