7 Ways to get the Perfect Shave [VIDEO]

June 14, 2018

There’s no better feeling than a freshly shaved face… Right, ladies?

No, I’m not talking about your face… I’m talking about your husband’s.

If your man is looking to get a more perfect shave, I have 7 tips you can share with him. So long red, irritated skin. And helloooo nice, smooth shave.  

1. Stay sharp

How often does your husband swap out his razor? If he’s using cheap, dull blades, he’s never going to get a good, close shave.

A good rule of thumb is to change the razor after every 10 shaves. This will ensure that it stays sharp.

A dull blade will only leave him with irritated skin and an uneven shave.

Before shaving, he’ll also want to check how clean the blades are. Hair, dirt, and other debris can get caught between the blades. Remember that when you shave, not only are you getting rid of hair, you're also scraping off the top layer of your skin.

2. Shave with the grain

Shave by following the natural way the facial hair grows. That means he should shave with the grain, not against it.

Figuring out which way the hair grows can be tricky at first. Unlike on other parts of the body, facial hair doesn't grow in the same direction, and it doesn't have the same thickness throughout. So…

He shouldn’t shave for a couple of days so he can better notice how the hair is growing. He’ll probably immediately notice that the hair on the chin is thickest. This area will need the most time to soak in water and shaving cream.

3. Soften with water

If shaving leaves your man with irritated skin and razor burn, there could be a simple fix. Have him wet his facial hair with lukewarm water before picking up a razor.

Hair is able to absorb a lot of moisture. When it absorbs water it becomes weaker -- and easier to shave. Without softening the hair with water, he won’t achieve a close shave.

4. Go natural with your shaving cream

For most men, store-bought shaving cream is a convenient option. They’ve probably been buying the same brand since they started shaving. However, many of these shaving creams have harmful ingredients that can irritate the skin.

Common toxic ingredients include:

  • Fragrance
  • Palmitic acid
  • Sulfates
  • Isopentane
  • Triethanolamine 

For a safer shave, use shaving cream made with all-natural ingredients, such as shea butter and eucalyptus oil. The best shaving cream for men will help him get a better shave that will have him feeling moisturized and fresh afterward.

5. Try using a shaving brush

A shaving brush is one of those things your man doesn’t think he needs -- until he starts using one.

This simple tool has some great benefits. It lifts the hair to help get a really close shave. It also helps apply and lather shaving cream. And, it can exfoliate the skin as the bristles swipe away dead skin.

6. Get nice and clean

Men -- don’t think you can just shave and call it a day… The next step is to wash your face. And no, a rinse won’t do it.

Use an all-natural facial wash to remove any traces of shaving cream, hair, dead skin and dirt. Once it your face is nice and clean, pat it with cool water. This will close your pores to protect your newly exposed layer of skin.

7. Lock in moisture

“Moisturizing” doesn’t exactly scream Manliness… and yet it’s the final step guys have to take.

Using a moisturizer will work wonders for the skin, helping to keep it soft and supple.

An easy moisturizer to make at home is to mix coconut oil with sunflower oil. This non-greasy combo is full of vitamin E to keep his face looking youthful.

Perky skin used to be effortless, remember? Back when you were 18, the fear of sagging skin didn’t come within a mile of your list of aesthetic concerns.
