Double edge razors often can reduce skin irritation, shave bumps, and ingrown hairs compared to disposable cartridge razors, because they have only one razor blade against the skin at one time. When you notice the razor blade starting to tug on hairs while shaving then it is time to change out the razor blade.
Step 1. Prime
A hot shower or hot towel treatment before you start is best. Apply a nickel sized amount of pre-shave oil to clean wet skin. Use a pre-shave oil to protect against nicks, cuts, tugs and bumps during your shave.
Step 2. Lather
Add nickel sized amount of shave cream to a warm wet badger brush. Apply directly to your skin in strong circular motions. Use a bit of speed and pressure to whip up a foamy lather. Set the brush with the leftover cream aside. You might need some more later. Use a shave cream formulated with a high concentration of Aloe Vera to keep your skin hydrated during your shave.
Step 3. Shave
Keep the Bevel Razor at a 30° angle and shave with the grain. Hint: Rubbing your hairs in the direction that smooths them down is with the grain. Mustaches typically only grow downward. So shaving your mustache downward would be with the grain. Now check other areas. Shave each with the grain. Never shave over bare skin. If you need to make another pass, add more shave cream first.
Step 4. Restore
Rinse your skin with cold water to close your pores. Don’t rub, gently pat dry with a clean towel. Rub a nickel-sized amount of aftershave into your skin. Use a cooling alcohol-free aftershave to soothe instead of sting.
