How To Give Yourself The Best Shave Ever
If you want to give yourself the best shave you’ve ever had you’ll need more than a disposable razor and a glob of shaving cream.

Most guys would consider selling their souls if it meant they never had to shave again. Yet as tedious as shaving is, it’s just one of those things that comes with the territory of being a dude. So you might as well do it right.
We’re going to take a guess that you think “doing it right” includes splashing a little water on your face, slapping on shaving cream, and hacking away with a razor, right? That works okay for some guys, but many suffer irritated skin and bloody nicks. To get the best shave ever, you need to put a little more care into the process.
#1. Look at the contours of your face
Check out how your facial hair grows. Not every man’s facial hair grows in the same direction. Also, don’t shave immediately after you wake up. Your skin will still be puffy, and this could lead to more nicks.
#2. Make sure you’ve got the right shaving tools:
Use a non-disposable razor. Disposable razors are cheap, cause nicks, and irritate the skin. The WEISHI Long Handle ($17 @ Amazon.com) has a 4.5-inch handle that’ll allows you to get a firm grip on things as you shave. The razor features a butterfly open, which allows for painless shaving and changing the blades. Five blades are included.
When you do shave, start with the easier areas first: the cheeks and neckline. That’ll allow more time for the shaving cream to sink into the tougher areas, like under the nose and around the jawline.
