You may be missing spots on your face when you shave because of your technique. To ensure that you get a smooth shave, always start by wetting your beard. As you shave, guide the razor in the direction that your hair grows. Avoid repeating strokes. Don't pull your skin taut with your free hand or stretch your facial skin in any way while shaving. Leave the skin relaxed. Talk to a dermatologist for more information.
