Tip #1. Say no to dull blades
It’s a very common problem: to use a dull blade and to say you can’t get a close shaving. Many men think their blades become dull only after certain number of usage. Unfortunately, it is wrong. Such kind of thoughts can lead to bad shaving experiences, which include cuts, nicks and rush.

Tip #2. A mirror! Or even two
Essential part of a good shaving is a mirror. You should see the entire surface.
And, as they say, one is good and two are better. Two mirrors will improve your shaving experience, because in this case you can use one mirror to do the shaving and at the same time you can use second mirror placed at an angle to the first mirror. When this occurs you can get better visual field for better shaving your sideburns and side of the face.
Tip #3. Warm washing before shaving
It’s not a secret, warm water open’s up the skin’s pores as well as make the hair strands softer, these two factors altogether provide an easier and smoother shave.
That’s why we suggest you to take a warm shower before the shaving or just rinse your face with the warm water, if you haven’t enough time for taking a shower. Also, if you have a lot of facial hair, for example a beard, it’s recommended to use a cloth soaked in warm water and press it against the beard for a couple of minutes.
