HOW TO SHAVE? | Everything you NEED to know | Malvika Sitlani Aryan

  1. Prepare your skin. Wash your face with warm water and soap to remove any dirt or oil. This will help the razor glide smoothly over your skin.
  2. Exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells and helps to prevent ingrown hairs. You can use a scrub or a washcloth.
  3. Apply shaving cream or gel. Shaving cream or gel helps to lubricate your skin and the razor, which prevents razor burn.
  4. Start shaving with the grain. This means shaving in the direction that your hair grows.
  5. Use short, light strokes. Don’t press too hard, or you’ll irritate your skin.
  6. Rinse the razor frequently. This will help to prevent it from clogging with hair.
  7. Shave against the grain for a closer shave. However, this can also cause more irritation, so only do it if you’re comfortable with it.
  8. Apply a cold compress after shaving. This will help to close your pores and reduce irritation.
  9. Moisturize your skin. This will help to keep your skin hydrated and prevent razor burn.

Here are some additional tips for shaving:

  • Use a sharp razor. A dull razor will tug at your hair and cause more irritation.
  • Change your razor blade often. A disposable razor should be changed after every shave, and a cartridge razor should be changed every 3-4 shaves.
  • Shave in a well-lit area. This will help you to see what you’re doing and avoid cuts.
  • Be careful around sensitive areas, such as your bikini line and underarms.
  • If you get razor burn, apply a cold compress or an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream.

With a little practice, you’ll be shaving like a pro in no time!
