How to Get the Best Shave of Your Life: Top 10 Tips

Introduction: Top 10 Tips for a Better Shave

Are you tired of battling razor burn, nicks, and cuts every time you shave? It’s time to upgrade your shaving game with these top 10 tips for a better shave. No longer will you dread shaving day or feel embarrassed by post-shave redness and irritation. With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to achieving the smoothest, most comfortable shave of your life. So get ready to say goodbye to the days of mediocre shaving and hello to a smoother, more confident you.

“A clean shave is the first step to a polished look – so take your time and make sure you do it right!”

Before shaving, you must moisturize your skin.. Shave gels or shaving creams contain moisturizing benefits that quickly get moisture into the hair to soften your skin so that the razor will glide smoothly

1. Never Dry Shave ​

Dry shaving – it’s like playing Russian roulette with your skin. Sure, you might get lucky and walk away unscathed, but more often than not, you’ll end up with redness, irritation, and enough cuts to make a barber cringe. If you’re someone who’s guilty of dry shaving, it’s time to put down the razor and step away from the sink. Trust us, your skin will thank you. Keep reading for more tips on how to avoid the dreaded dry shave and achieve a smoother, more comfortable shaving experience.

Did you know that if you’re going to shave, it’s best to do it at night? We know it sounds a little bogus, but beauty experts claim that when we sleep, our legs tend to swell up a bit causing hairs that we missed while shaving to sink back into the follicle. When you wake up the following morning, you’ll notice legs feel and appear smoother because they’re still a bit swollen from the night before. 

Physical exfoliation involves using a scrub or brush to physically remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin

2. Exfoliate before Shaving 

Exfoliating before shaving is like hitting the reset button on your skin. It’s like telling all those dead skin cells, “Sorry folks, it’s time to move on.” By exfoliating, you’re not only removing the buildup of dead skin cells that can clog up your razor, but you’re also prepping your skin for a closer, smoother shave. Think of it like tilling the soil before planting seeds – it creates the perfect environment for your razor to glide smoothly over your skin, leaving you with a baby-soft, velvety finish. So if you’re looking to take your shaving game to the next level, don’t skip the exfoliation step. Your skin (and your razor) will thank you.

​Don’t forget you can use the classic exfoliation products such as loofahs and bath scrubs prior to shaving. Exfoliating first helps keep the razor from getting overloaded with dead skin cells, which reduces its efficiency. By scrubbing off dead skin cells, exfoliation helps expose hair follicles, which allows the razor to lift them more easily, resulting in a smoother shave. 

3. Choose Cold Water over Warm Water Before Shaving

When it comes to shaving, the temperature of your water matters more than you might think. Sure, warm water may feel nice and soothing, but it can also make your skin swell and expand, which can actually make it harder for your razor to get a close, smooth shave. That’s where cold water comes in. By using cold water to wet your skin before shaving, you’re causing your pores to tighten up, which can actually make it easier for your razor to glide across your skin. Plus, the cold water can help reduce inflammation and redness, leaving your skin looking and feeling cool, calm, and collected. So next time you’re reaching for that warm water, remember – when it comes to shaving, cold is the new hot.

4. Ditch the Soap for the Shaving Cream or Foam

Using soap to shave is like using a butter knife to cut a steak – sure, it might work in a pinch, but it’s not exactly the best tool for the job. When it comes to shaving, you want a product that’s specifically designed to create a rich, creamy lather that will protect your skin and help your razor glide smoothly over it. That’s where shaving cream or foam comes in. Not only does it create a protective barrier between your skin and your razor, but it also helps soften your hair, making it easier to cut and reducing the risk of irritation and razor burn. So if you want to up your shaving game and avoid the painful consequences of using soap, ditch the bar and reach for the cream – your skin (and your steak) will thank you.

Avoid irritants While shaving products like creams and gels have a consistency that is preferable to thin bar-soap lather, they can still upset skin if they contain irritating ingredients such as fragrance, alcohol or menthol. ​ ​But you needn’t shell out on expensive shaving oils, an organic Sunflower or Safflower oil that you can pick up at health foods stores will provide the necessary lubrication and nourishment for a close, smooth shave.

It is not safe to shave with a rusty razor. Therefore, as a safety measure, discard your shaving blades after three or four uses to prevent ingrown hairs

5. Ladies, Avoid Using Men’s Shaver!

Ladies, when it comes to shaving, you don’t want to be caught using your man’s razor. Sure, it might be tempting to grab his razor when yours is dull, but trust us – it’s not worth the risk. Men’s razors are designed with thicker, coarser hair in mind, which means they can be too harsh and abrasive for delicate areas like your underarms and bikini line. Plus, using someone else’s razor can put you at risk for all sorts of unpleasant infections and irritations – and let’s be real, nobody wants that. So ladies, save yourself the trouble and invest in a razor that’s specifically designed for women. Your skin (and your man’s razor) will thank you.


6. Focus on the Direction of the Hair Growth when Shaving

When it comes to shaving, it’s important to remember that you’re not playing Whac-A-Mole – you’re not trying to tackle each hair as it pops up. Instead, you want to focus on the direction of the hair growth. Going against the grain might seem like a good idea, but trust us – it’s not worth the potential irritation and ingrown hairs. So if you want to avoid looking like you have a permanent rash, pay attention to which way your hair grows and shave accordingly. And remember, slow and steady wins the race – so take your time and give each hair the attention it deserves.

Try glycolic acid If you’re prone to razor bumps that stem from ingrown hairs caused by shaving, look for a lotion with glycolic acid, an acidic substance classified as an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA).  Try Some “Advanced” Shaving Tricks on Small Areas This is not for everyone, but if you have small areas of stubble or rough patches, you can try some techniques like “J-Hooking” or “Blade Buffing” to cover those areas without re-shaving–and possibly getting irritation–over a wider area.  ​

Pores are tiny openings on the surface of the skin that serve as the exit points for sweat and sebum, the body's natural oils

7. Close Your Pores before Shaving 

Listen up folks, if you want a smooth, bump-free shave, you need to learn to close your pores before you start hacking away at your hair. Why? Because open pores can lead to all sorts of problems, from razor burn to ingrown hairs.

So before you reach for your razor, take a few minutes to close your pores – and no, we don’t mean with a cork. Try splashing some cold water on your face or using a toner to help tighten up those pores. Trust us, your skin will thank you for it. And if all else fails, just remember: there’s no shame in sporting a little stubble.

8. Will Hair Regrow Thicker After Shaving? Probably Not

Ah, the age-old question: does shaving make your hair grow back thicker? It’s a common misconception, but the truth is that it’s all just a bunch of baloney. Think about it – if shaving really did make hair grow back thicker, then bald guys would be out there shaving their heads every day to try and grow a luscious mane. But alas, it just doesn’t work that way. So go ahead, shave away without fear – you won’t end up looking like a Yeti anytime soon.

So unless you want to look like a spotted leopard with hair still sprouting in random places, it's best to avoid laser hair removal after a sun tan.

9. Always Protect Your Skin from the Sun

Here’s a little secret: the sun doesn’t discriminate. That’s right, even if you’re not a pale, red-headed, freckled mess like me, your skin is still susceptible to the damaging effects of the sun. And if you’re someone who shaves regularly, you’re exposing fresh, sensitive skin to those harmful UV rays. So always make sure to protect your skin from the sun by slathering on some sunscreen or wearing protective clothing. Your skin will thank you, and you’ll avoid looking like a leather handbag before your time.

10. Replace Your Shavers Regularly

Let’s be real here – we all have that one friend who refuses to let go of their old, rusty shaver that they’ve been using since the dawn of time. But the thing is, old shavers just don’t cut it anymore (pun intended). Not only are they less effective at removing hair, but they can also be a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. So do yourself and your skin a favor by replacing your shaver regularly. And who knows, maybe you’ll even find a new appreciation for the feeling of a fresh, sharp blade against your skin.

Or Just Choose Laser Hair Removal over Shaving!

Let’s face it, shaving can be a hassle. From razor burns to nicks and cuts, it’s just not a fun experience. But fear not, my friends, because there is a solution: laser hair removal. Not only does it save you time and money in the long run, but it also eliminates the need for constant shaving and the associated skin irritations. So why settle for the daily struggle of shaving when you can have silky smooth skin with just a few laser hair removal sessions? Trust me, your skin (and your sanity) will thank you.
