A Close Shave
For guys, taking care of their skin has a lot to do with one's shaving technique. A dull blade, being in a hurry, and other pitfalls can cause red bumps, ingrown hairs, or razor burns. However, mastering a few moves can set you up nicely for a lifetime of beautifully clean shaves. Some quick tips from the pros: (1) A hot towel pressed on your face will help to soften hair and skin. (2) A moisturizing shaving cream can do wonders in helping to keep your shave clean and your skin smooth. (3) Shave in the direction your hair is growing. (4) Don't forget aftercare—soothe skin with a moisturizer or other calming lotion.
