Tips for the best shave

When we were little, surely more than one of you dreamed of growing up to be able to shave like we saw in the movies, with a foam brush and a razor. But as we have grown, the task of shaving may have become a daily odyssey, especially for those who have skin that is too sensitive to razors. In addition, cutting with a blade and brush takes us longer than normal, so we have finally opted for electric machines or disposable razors.

Now that hipster fashion has started to go out of style and completely clean faces are back in fashion, in Having Class we are going to teach you the three steps necessary to make the best shave, the best shave that will offer us excellent results.

Prepare the skin

As we have been taught since we were little, first of all we must moisten the face with a little warm water, although it is best to do it with a cloth dipped in hot water and place it on the beard so that the pores begin to open. Just before applying the foam, we must go through an exfoliant, which will help us to remove the previous impurities that we may have on the skin.

Foam, cream or soap?

If you have ever gone to a barber to have your beard retouched, surely you have seen how he has not used foam or cream to lather your face. Makes use of lifelong soap and applies it with a brush, this is the best way to evenly cover the entire surface we want to shave.

Shaved off

Following the previous point, hairdressers do not use electric machines or razor blades, but makes use of a razor. Razors allow us to reach any part of our face in addition to being composed of a single blade, preventing the skin from being irritated when making several passes to adjust the shave.

The use of a razor is ideal for those who have very sensitive skin, since both the electric machine and the razors with multiple blades perform three (if you have three blades) passes in a row through the same area without giving time to momentarily recover.

Post shave

Once we have finished the shaving task, we must remove the remains of foam from our face with warm water, to later do it with cold water, so that pores that may still be open eventually close. If we also want to add a touch of hydration, we can use an after shave without alcohol.
