Blader Men Shaving Guide

    Blader Men Shaving Guide

  • Prepare your face skin by cleaning thoroughly your face before you shave.
  • Trim hair down short by using the shortest guard with hair clippers or placing a comb flat on the skin and trim over comb with scissors.
  • You should determine the direction of growth of the hair you want to target.
  • It's best to shave in the direction of hair growth.
  • 5-10 minutes of application heat and steam will make skin and hair more relaxed and pliable. Cover your face with a warm washcloth for several minutes before getting started. Warm water on the skin serves several purposes:
  • Warm water makes hair stand up, which makes shaving easier.
  • Warm water relaxes the skin, giving it a looser felling. This will prevent you from shaving too close, as you would with taut skin.
  • Warm water also opens up your pores releases the skin's natural oil and helps keep them clean. Clogged pores will result in acne that disturbs the smooth surface of the skin, potentially blocking or redirecting hair that would otherwise grow out normally away from the face.
  • Warm water will help prevent the tips of hair from being sharp, as the hair will both stand up during shaving and give slightly when the razor passes over, creating a more rounded hair tip.
  • Warm water will improve your shave while helping to prevent shaving rash.
  • Exfoliate: Remove dead skin cells by using a mild body scrub. Massaging the beard is recommended using circular motions in order to make the hair stand up.
  • Apply shaving oil, which can help open your pores, soften hair and protect your skin.
  • Use your shaving brush to apply, Shaving cream, lotion and gel. These products can also provide protection to the skin.
  • Choose and use BLADER shaving razors with lubricating strip, pivoting head and multiple blades to give you a smooth, close shave without irritation cuts, nicks and razor burns
  • During shaving follow the same direction of hair growth and then shave in the opposite direction without going over the same area too many times. (Holding skin taut does help give you a closer shave, but may irritate skin.)
  • Rinse the blade from the front, back and sides between strokes. A clogged razor won't remove hair well.
  • Rinse area to remove all traces of shaving gel or cream. Then pat dry with a soft towel.
  • Apply an unscented lotion, aftershave or rub an antiseptic gel or oil.
  • Keeping your razor blade clean, will maintain your blade sharper for much longertime and it will last for many more comfortable shaves.
  • it is important to keep your shaving razor blade dry after finishing shaving. When a blade is not dried off right after you shave the water that dries on the blade leaves behind residue/debris, just like when you leave drops of water on a sink, table etc. When this happens on your blade the residue that builds up causes your shave to feel scratchy and less comfortable. This residue also causes the blades to dull faster.
