- Polish Yourself Off First
If you want a close shave it's a great idea to exfoliate. Exfoliating rids your skin of dirt and other impurities, but it also demolishes dead skin cells that could clog your razor for a less than close shave.
- Primed And Ready
Use a priming oil. You'd want to soften the hairs on your beard so that the razor glides across the follicles and your skin effortlessly to prevent nicks.
- Let's Clear Things Up
While there are some great shave creams, we recommend you use a low foam shave gel. The Frederick Benjamin shave gel is clear, making it easy to see where you're shaving to avoid cutting yourself.
- All About The Motion
Remember to shave in short strokes with the grain of your facial hair. You can find out which way your facial hairs grows by taking a plastic credit/debit card to glide the card across your hair. The direction that gives the least resistance is the direction that you should shave in.
- The Cool Down
After you've shaved and rinsed your skin with cold water, be sure to apply an after-shave cream. The Bump Clear Post Shave Cream by Frederick Benjamin has ingredients like: Sunflower seed oil which aids in adding moisture that your skin lost during shaving as well as anti-inflammatory properties to fight razor rash, bumps and ingrown hairs.
So now that you've got the tools, go out and conquer the world with your vibranium enhanced skills like a true ruler of the shave school.
