How can one avoid nicks when shaving?
Try searching it online and you'll surely find page after page of shaving tips written by so-called shaving experts. But here’s the only guide that you need, a step-by-step guide on how to have an ouchless shaving experience.
Prepare the following:
An exfoliating face wash
Shaving gel or cream
A sharp twin-blade razor
Face moisturizer with SPF 15 or higher
The first step is to take a hot shower. Use a gentle exfoliating face wash while taking a hot shower to help open the pores. The warm moisture of the shower also soften the stubs. Hot steam towels are used in barber shops for the same purpose.
While the hair is still soft after a hot shower, or you can also do this while you’re still in the shower, lather your face with a shaving gel or cream. Leave it on for a few minutes before shaving, to soften the hair more for a closer shave.
Now get a clean, sharp twin-blade razor and dip it in hot water. Making sure to not put too much pressure, start shaving with the grain of your beard. Do not shave too close to the roots since that can lead to shaving some skin off your face, ouch! An electric shaver can do the job in a few minutes. A very good investment especially if you're in a hurry for a date or a meeting.
After shaving, rinse with cold water and pat dry. Apply moisturizer to soften the facial skin with enough SPF to protect the face from the harsh rays of the sun.
