How to Use?
After cleansing and exfoliating, use a hot towel to open the pores of your skin. Follow the direction of your hair growth to avoid irritation. Apply your desired pre-shave option to your skin, either with fingers or a shaving brush. We recommend starting with your sideburns and cheeks, pulling the skin tight from the neck. Put the razor to your face (no pressure should be required) at an angle of 30 degrees, use short strokes and follow your hair growth. Once this area is smooth move to the neck, following the same technique of short strokes and at a gentle angle. Finally the lip and chin area. Hair tends to be more corse around this area so add a little warm water to give extra moisture.
Once your shave is complete rinse your face and neck with cool water to close pores. Select your favourite post-shave or aftershave product to sooth skin. Rinse your razor under running water then dab dry with a towel. To avoid irritation change razor blade every 3-7 shaves.
