How To Shave
Learning how to shave your is so easy an article can teach you. Luckily for you by the end of this article you’ll have learned how to shave the fuzz off your skin thus sparing you some unnecessary cuts and a bruised ego.
To learn how to shave you need a couple of things:
- Shaving Cream
- Wet your face. It’s not rocket science but it sure is important. Wetting your face before shaving wakes you up which is what you need before putting a sharp metal object against your face. Besides the moisture will help the shaving cream spread easier.
- Whip the shaving cream. You only need a small amount of shaving cream to shave (i.e. about the size of a cough drop). With the shaving cream in the palm of one hand use the other to massage it; it’ll soon turn into dense foam.
- Apply shaving cream to your face. Use both hands to spread the shaving cream wherever you’re going to shave. You want to basically white out all the skin in the area you want to shave.
- Rinse your razor in the bowl. Rinsing the razor in the bowl of water helps the blades glide across the skin you’re about to shave. If the razor wasn’t wet the blades might stutter across your skin leaving unnecessary cuts.
- Now you can start shaving. Gently stroke the area of skin you don’t want hair on. Be as gentle on your face as you would be with a balloon you don’t want to pop. Your can shave down or up for a close shave. After about 2 or 3 strokes rinse your razor for more smooth strokes.
- Apply after shave. If you have any cuts on your skin after you shave then apply after shave to prevent infections. Though I warn you, it might sting a little.
Soon you'll be a shaving pro!
