Always shave in or after a shower, using cream or oil – and don’t be tempted to get laser hair-removal on your face.

When you shave, preparation is key. That means having a really hot face cloth and soaking the area, or shaving in or just after a shower. The hot water and steam softens the hair and open the follicles for a closer, easier shave. Always use a shaving cream or oil. Use a shaving brush to create a rich lather to raise the hairs when applying and then let it sit on your face for a minute.

Shave with the grain for less irritation and make sure you don’t use disposable blades, as they can get blunted easily and cut your skin. Likewise, avoid using a cut-throat razor unless you are very experienced, as they can be dangerous. After shaving, rinse with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel. Always make sure to finish off with your signature aftershave lotion to replace moisture and soothe the skin.
