You don’t need to go to the barbershop to get a perfect shave, especially if you own a Micro Touch One. With these easy to follow steps, you’ll be able to achieve the perfect shave right from home.
Step 1: Timing
Timing is very important for achieving the perfect shave. Ideally, the best time to shave is right when you get out of the shower, when your beard is well hydrated. Shaving right after a shower will ensure that you have a close and non-irritating shave.
Step 2: Apply Shave-Oil
After you get out of the shower, it is ideal to apply shave-oil to your wet beard. Shave oil is important because it raises your beard hairs for a close shave, provides a slick surface for the razor to glide on, and will help prevent razor rash.
Step 3: Apply Shaving Cream
On top of the shave oil, apply your shaving cream. Aggressively work it into your beard, using either your fingertips or a brush. Take a little extra time to work the cream into sensitive areas of your skin.
Step 4: Shave
Now that you’ve taken all the steps necessary to get a great, clean shave, it’s time to put our MicroTouch One razor to work. Shave with the grain to start, using short strokes and rinsing off the blade often. You should only go against the grain to get hairs that were left behind at the end of everything. Give a quick rub to your face to make sure everything is smooth and that you didn’t miss any spots.
Step 5: Moisturize
When you finished the shave, splash some cold water on your face to soothe the skin and help pores close up quicker. Finally, toss on some aftershave to soothe and moisturize the skin.
There you have it. Follow these steps and you’ll have a perfect shave every time. You don’t need to go to a barbershop when you have a Micro Touch One Razor. Happy shaving!
