Skin Preparation for Shaving with a Safety Razor

Clean Your Skin: Begin by thoroughly washing your face with a gentle cleanser. The warm water will soften the hair and open the pores, preparing the skin for a more comfortable shave.

Apply Shaving Cream: Use a high-quality shaving cream or soap to create a rich lather. Apply it evenly across the areas to be shaved, ensuring a protective barrier for the razor to glide smoothly.

Let the Pivoting Head Provide the Correct Angle: Allow the razor to flow seamlessly, adapting to the natural curves for an effective cutting experience without the risk of irritation or nicks. 

Light Pressure: Let the weight of the razor do the work. Avoid applying excessive pressure, as this can lead to irritation and cuts.

Short, Controlled Strokes: Shave with short, controlled strokes, moving in the direction of hair growth. This minimizes the risk of ingrown hairs and irritation. The Three Pass Shave provides the best single-blade safety razor results.

Rinse Frequently: Rinse your safety razor frequently to remove hair and shaving cream buildup. This ensures a clean and efficient shave.

Post-Shave Care: Finish with a splash of cold water to close the pores. Apply a soothing, alcohol-free aftershave or moisturizer to hydrate the skin and prevent irritation.
