Wash skin and leave damp before shaving.
If you have time, consider softening your whiskers with a hot, damp towel. Wet a towel with hot water and press it over the contours of your face for 30 seconds or so. It feels great, softens your hair and prepares it for shaving. Keeping the hairs moist will decrease the force you need to cut them.
Apply Barbasol Shaving Cream in a circular motion to help lift whiskers.
In addition to its rich, thick lather, the ingredients in Barbasol actually raise hair follicles, giving you a closer and long lasting shave. Using a quality shaving cream like Barbasol will moisturize and lubricate your skin.
Always use a sharp, clean razor.
Dull or clogged blades can tug on skin, leading to irritation or cuts, so rinse the blade often.
Shave using strokes that go with the grain of your hair growth.
To determine which direction your hair grows, rub your hand across the hairs on your face. When you are going with the grain, the hair will move more smoothly than when you go against the grain. Shaving with the grain reduces the likelihood of cutting yourself and chance of ingrown hairs.
Gently rinse and pat dry.
Skin is most sensitive after shaving, so avoid "rubbing" your face dry with a towel.
Finish with a Barbasol After Shave Splash or an After Shave Balm.
Finishing with an after shave product is an essential step that should not be ignored. Fortunately, Barbasol offers quality after shave products to fit your preferences.
