Some hot water
Some cold water
Splash your face with warm water for at least 20 seconds. The shower is perfect for this. Alternatively, use a facecloth soaked with hot water. This will soften up your beard making it easier to shave.
Make a note of the directions your beard hair grows. In some areas it may grow down, other areas up and some people even have areas where it grows in the shape of a circle. You‘ll need to know your beard growth pattern for the perfect shave.
Now, squeeze some Expert Exfoliating Face and Scalp Scrub onto your hands. Use about 5ml (the amount a teaspoon would hold). Rub it briefly between your hands and then apply to your face in a circular motion. Use the scrub for about a minute to remove the dead skin cells and help prepare your face for the perfect shave.
Rinse off the Scrub.
Squeeze around 5ml of Expert Smoothing Shave Cream onto your hand and rub briefly between both hands. Now apply it to the area to be shaved. Rub it around a bit.
Rinse your hands, not your face.
Take your triple blade razor and shave in the same direction as your beard growth.
While you‘re doing this, stretch your skin behind the razor with your free hand so that you‘re creating a smooth, taut surface for the razor to glide across. Try and shave each area only once, putting a medium pressure on the razor.
Rinse your razor if it clogs up with hair or cream.
Once you‘ve finished your shave, feel the beard area to ensure you haven‘t left any bits out. If you have, gently go over them again, ensuring the skin is taut while you shave.
Once you‘re satisfied with your shave, rinse out your razor.
Splash your face with cold water and remove any excess cream. The cold water is vital to the shave as it will seal closed the pores in your face. This can help in the prevention of blackheads and razor burn.
Pat your face dry with a dry towel.
Apply about 2ml of Jason Shankey Expert Skin Soothing Moisture Balm to your hands (that‘s around half a teaspoon).
Rub it briefly between your hands and then apply onto the shaved areas immediately. You can also apply it to other areas of your face such as your nose, forehead and neck. Let it dry.
Examine your face. How does it look? Has the redness and irritation gone?
If you have been suffering from shaving irritation or redness, allow yourself 3 or 4 days of non-shaving. This will normally heal up the condition. Then, use this guide to achieve the Best Shave in the World.
Use the Scrub no more often than twice per week.
