The most valuable thing a young man learning to shave can receive is simply a lesson on how to do it right. Learning the proper technique can reduce the risk for skin irritation, nicks, cuts, and other problems that shaving can cause. Fortunately, learning to shave the right way means following just a few simple rules:
  • Wet your beard thoroughly with warm water before shaving.
  • Shave in the direction the hair is growing; avoid shaving against the grain.
  • Avoid repeating strokes if possible.
  • Keep your face relaxed as you shave; don't stretch the skin.
