Shaving Tips for Men: How to Shave Your Face | Gillette ProGlide Shield

Whether you're shaving for the first time or you're a pro,

we have some tips on how to get a smoother, more comfortable shave.

First, hydrate to minimize nicks, cuts, and irritation.

Hydrating softens your hair, allowing the razor to glide more easily.

Use a facial scrub or wash to remove oil, dirt, and dead skin,

preparing your skin for a comfortable shave.

Now lather up some shave gel and let it soak in for a minute.

Gel improves glide and softens your hairs.

Check the lubrication strips.

If they look faded or worn, or if the blades feel dull, use a fresh blade.

Dull blades can cause nicks and irritate your neck and face.

Use light, gentle strokes, letting the razor do the work.

The Gillette Fusion Pro Shield has a pivoting flex ball that

adapts to the contours of your face.

Rinse your blades often.

Remember don't shave without gel or over shave the same spot.

So with or against the grain?

The answer is both.

Facial hair grows in many directions so you'll mostly

be shaving both with and against the grain.

Shave in the direction that feels most comfortable.

An advanced multiblade razor like this one

will help you get a comfortable shave even against the grain.

Use the precision trimmer on the back to get

those hard to reach places like under your nose and to define your sideburns.

Wash your face with cool water and pat it dry.

Rub in a hydrating aftershave to replenish moisture and soothe

your skin.

Dang, you look good.
