How often do you hear tips on how to shave? For me, I hear tips about shaving roughly twice a week and a lot of the time the tips are not even good. The reason I say this is because the people I get shaving tips from are either older and like old fashion methods or they just don’t look like they shave that often. Whatever the reason is for people to think they can give you shaving tips is beyond me, but I do have some great tips that I have put together from all around the internet.
One of the things that I want to get to right now is some hot shaving tips that most people don’t know. The reason I am going to give you hot shaving tips is because in my opinion, using hot or warm shaving cream is the best way to go. Trust me on this one, if you are not using warm shaving cream, then you are not getting the best shave possible.
Hot Shaving Tips
Use A Machine – One of the first tips that I have for you is to not put your shaving cream under hot water to try and warm it up that way. The reason I don’t recommend doing this is because it takes too long and it can ruin your shaving cream. What I do recommend is that you get a shaving cream warmer. The best part about a good shaving cream warmer is that it warms all the shaving cream at one time as opposed to just one portion of it and it works really fast.
Use Warm Water – Not only should you use warm shaving cream, you need to use warm water as well. The reason you need to use warm water is because you want to keep your razor blades warm. Having a warm face and cold razor blades only makes things worse. Just do yourself a favor and make sure your face, the shaving cream and the razor are all warm.
Sharp Blades Are A Must – Just like warm water and warm shaving cream, sharp razor blades are a must as well. The reason why you need sharp razor blades is because they help prevent ingrown hairs and they help you get all the hair off your skin. If you think that a sharp razor blade is not that important, then think again because they are. My advice would be to use a new razor blade every 3-4 weeks so that you are never using something that is dull.
Shave With The Grain – This is something that I should not mention, but I will anyway, you need to shave with the grain. The reason you need to do this is so that you don’t give yourself an ingrown hair and so that you still get a close shave.
Now I don’t know about you but doing a hot shave sounds a lot better to me than a cold shave does. Whether you are shaving your legs, face, underarms or anything else doesn’t matter, what matter is that you get the best shave possible and that is what I am trying to help you with right now.
