3 Shaving Tips Every Man Should Know

Sick of cutting up your chin with cheap razors and amateur shaving techniques? Even if you don’t yet know what a Hart Steel razor is, you can still learn a few tricks of the trade to limit those painful nicks every morning.

1. Prep your skin by washing your face. Cleansers made especially for a man’s face will soften the hair, making it easier to get a smooth shave. Avoid using harsh soaps when washing your face, because they strip your skin of important oils. Before rinsing the cleanser, leave it on your face for a full minute.

2. Invest in a good shaving cream. Look for one that has a high amount of moisturizer and lubricant. You want a shaving cream that works into a rich lather, not one that foams up. The best way to lather it is to use a brush instead of your hands. Let the shaving cream sit on your face for three minutes.

3. Whether you prefer a single blade or a double blade, the razor you use must be sharp and nick-free. If you shave every morning, aim to replace the blade every two weeks. Single blades cost less than multiple-blade razors, so if you shave often, you’ll spend less overall if you stick with singles.

Basic shaving is super easy, but getting a good shave takes a little extra time and practice. It’s worth it - your skin will thank you.
