Here’s a new approach in shaving not discussed yet:
Wet Shaving

1. Wet the Brush
Find the right balance of wetness. Wet enough that it picks up soap, but not too wet or else you will lose a good lather. Remember, it is always easier to add water than to take away.

 


2. Create the Lather
Once soap is on the brush, swirl soaped brush around the bowl to create a lather. The goal is to create a creamy lather. You want to be able to hold the brush upside down and have the lather stick to the brush, but just barely.

 


3. Applying of Shaving Cream
Leaving the lather on the brush, then using the brush, swirl and paint the lather around your face. This not only applies the soap but helps soften & stand up the hairs your about to shave, plus opens up your pores.

 


4. Wet Shave!
Use slow, short, light strokes – let the weight of the razor do the work. Go with the grain of your hair when possible. Be sure to wash off the razor often between passes, to remove hair and soap from the blade.

 


5. Apply After Shave
After shaving, wash your face clean of the shaving cream using cold water to help close your pores. Slap on some after shave. (Click here to read more!)
