How to achieve the perfect shave

HOW TO ACHIEVE THE PERFECT SHAVE Manscaping:When a man rids his body of all excess body hair via waxing, shaving, plucking, etc. i.e. When he took off his shirt, it looked like he was still| wearing a sweater. He's in desperate need of some manscaping. ESSENTIAL STEPS Prepare • Splash your face with hot water to soften your bristly hairs and open your pores. Pat dry witha washcloth, • Use a pre-shave essential oil to prepare your hairy face and provide for a smooth razor glide. Lather Up • Use a badger brush to apply your favorite shaving cream or lather up with some traditional shaving soap (using a badger brush will give you a thicker, richer, and more emollient lather). Shave • Dip a clean, sharp blade in hot water, avoid applying pressure, and shave with the grain. • Rinse your blade often. • If you require a closer shave, re-lather and gently shave against the grain. Moisturize • Use your favorite after-shave balm to revitalize and soothe your newly smooth, dry skin.
