Shaving first thing you jump in the shower

Shaving once being in the bath or shower for about 10 minutes makes for a better shave as the hairs have softened and the hair follicles have opened up.

Shaving upwards – and then downwards

You should always start by shaving downwards as this is the direction leg hairs grow. Only then should you try shaving ‘against the grain’ for a closer shave – but if you do, know that it increases the chances of skin irritation, nicks and cuts. If you have really sensitive skin, avoid shaving upwards completely.

Change your blades when they start to look dull – that’s usually after 10 shaves or so. Old blades are ineffective and can cause redness and bumps from trapped bacteria.
