How to shave
Having a bump free shave involves you paying a little attention to your shaving ritual. Follow the steps in this video, using the products mentioned below to eradicate bumps and keep them away
1. Using the facial wash
A great shave starts even before you pick up a razor. Use the Anti blemish facial wash to cleanse your skin, remove oil and dirt and unclog pores. This product softens your hair, hydrates your skin making it easier and safer for the razor to cut to avoid irritation
2. Hot shower
A hot shower is ideal but if not feasible, simply wash you face in the sink with warm water using the facial wash as described above.
3. Shaving gel
This is very important. Use Gillette fusion hydra gel for your shaving. Apply it in a circular motion over the areas you shave. This puts a protective blanket over your hair, locks in moisture and makes the job of shaving easier. If you have sensitive skin, allow the gel to sit on your face for a full minute after applying it. The hair will absorb it more, gets softer and becomes a lot easier to shave off without any tucking and pulling.
4. Shaving Razor
This again is very important. You can use a Gillette fusion multi blade razor or a Norelco circular blade depending on what works for you. Make sure that the multi blade razor is not dull to avoid nicks and skin irritation. If you don’t know how to do this, look at the blade to see if it has an indication strip which would fade to white If its no longer sharp. If so discard the blade and add a new one.
Apply light gentle strokes. Remember this is not manual labor. The razor should do the work not you; to avoid pressing down on the blade causing irritation which will become the corner stone of razor bumps starting with an inflammation. We don’t want that to happen.
You can pull your skin down as shown in the video and rinse your blade frequently for batter glide and comfortable shaving.
Rub your hand across your skin to determine which direction your hair grows. If you feel some resistance, that means you are moving against the grain.
The first step is to shave with the grain and then secondly against the grain
Around the lips and chin
The toughest areas to shave are around the lips and chin. Leave these areas for last to give the shaving gel more time to soak and make the hair softer.
5. Trimming and sculpting
For any part of your face that needs trimming or sculpting, use A single blade razor such as the Gillette fusion single blade. Areas that this works great for include under the nose and for trimming the side burns if you so desire.
Rinse off your blade with warm water. Do not dry on a towel or bang it on the sink to get rid of the water. This could damage the blades leading edge. Simply shake it off and remember to store the blade in its organizer to preserve it until when you need it again.
6. Rinse your face
This time use cool water to rinse your face. This is excellent for closing closed pores and giving an excellent feel to your shave. Pat your face dry with a towel for excellent results.
