Shaving. Whilst some master their technique from day one, some of us still require a little helping hand from time to time; despite it being part of our weekly and sometimes daily routine. No matter how much of a master (or amateur) you think you are, there’s nothing wrong with refining your skills and refreshing your technique. With this in mind, we’ve enlisted the help of our friends over at men-ü to help us with some hints and tips to perfect our smooth shave and get an award winning finish each and every time.
The Perfect Shave in 10 Steps with men-ü
Step 1: Prep Your Skin
Ideally shower first or rinse your face well with warm water to soften the beard or stubble. Never shave cold or apply men-ü shave products to dry skin, as this will create friction and lead to irritation.
Step 2: Choose The Right Tools
If using a shaving brush, you can create a barbershop experience at home by using a quality brush, just as top barbers do. Choose a shaving brush like the men-ü PRO BLACK Shaving Brush. Using a brush benefits your shave as Bristle resistance raises the beard (making a closer cut easier) and softness helps create a creamy, less aerated lather.
