Smooth, close shave without skin irritation,burning sensation, cuts - this is what every man dreams of. But why is it so difficult to do, it would seem, such a simple thing !? It is not due to the fact that we realize that we have to shave throughout life, not it !? And yet, why? Why is it so difficult to achieve perfection in simple actions? The answer is very simple, and you do not let it seem absurd. The thing is that close shave no longer be considered an art. And what used to surround this mystery of knowledge - it is passed down from generation to generation, from father to son!
But today replaced disposable razorsmachines. Of course, it is even impractical, but it is much more convenient. What you will agree, it makes life easier in the morning, when we are not yet fully awake, able to shave, they say, "on the machine", without risking cutting off his ear. But! The first step to achieving excellence in this difficult matter is just an informed approach to it! To hell with sloth and torpor! Art requires attention (not the victims!).
Thus, healingandbodywork proceeds directly to practice.
To begin to determine the machine. This may be a razor with replaceable blades, disposable machine, or an electric shaver. It all depends on your skin type and its sensitivity.
Shaving by electric shaver, in our humble opinion, is notIt requires no manual. Firstly, because it is difficult to fit into the concept of art. And secondly, not everyone is suitable Elektrostanok. Not all electric shavers take tough stubble, and ingrown hairs completely shaved machine is simply impossible. Therefore, this guide is intended for those who use conventional machines.

Always make sure that the bladerazor sharp! In no case do not shave blunt machine - is in nine cases out of ten would lead to severe skin irritation and cuts. Especially at this point, you should pay attention to those who have sensitive skin. If you use disposable tools, change them as often as possible. Two or three shaving - limit for single-use machines. Therefore, at this stage, you should either get a new machine, or replace the blade.
How to shave. Step Three.
The first bar. Start shaving the cheeks should be with - a razor tray to face and carry out the machine from the beginning of the bristles to the jaw line, from top to bottom. In principle, it is quite simple - the main thing is not to overdo it - here obedient hair and cut off any machine is very easy.
The main rule. Shaving should be on the growth of the hair, in any case do not mind - it should be to learn how to double or two. Some, however, go on a little trick: not to irritate the skin, but it is extremely clean shave, working with the machine is not on the hair growth, and a little obliquely, at a slight angle. Try it and you could be this way, too, someone will approach as the most appropriate.
You can help yourself with your free hand, almostpulling the skin for a more efficient shave. So the skin becomes more elastic. In particular, it will help you in the fight against hair that sometimes grows at a right angle.
Strongly press on the machine is not necessary. Rather smoothly confident movements. The force applied to these movements during shaving, each counting for himself.
the machine should be carried out under the chindirection from the neck to the chin. On the neck is most common such problem as "ingrown hairs". But it is easy to solve: just pick carefully sterilized tweezers that the better half of humanity uses when plucking eyebrows, and carefully shave off the hair. After shaving, this site is necessary to pay special attention to - to wash out some cosmetic soap, like "scrub" and spare no cream or special oil for skin care.
To avoid cuts after each (or every two) for the passage of the razor stubble is necessary to wash the machine blade under hot running water, or can be pre-filled half shell.
True, there are some subtleties. If you do not grow coarse hair, and you easily enough to steam the hair, then wet the razor blade can be in the icy water - it will be easier to shave. However, if you have stiff bristles, no cold water during shaving!
So you shaved cheeks and neck. Now - the chin and mustache. Here is the stiff bristles, and in order to avoid undesirable effects, such as irritation and cuts - should soften the hair. How to do it?

If necessary, rinse with hot water. Then again, evenly apply a foam / gel.
Shave the hair above the lip must be pressed with afront teeth that area of skin. The machine is directed at a slight angle - so the hair cut off more easily and more thoroughly, ie fewer movements with a razor, and accordingly, and less irritation.
How to shave. Step Four.
Hard to reach places. Rinse off all foam or gel, and check your face for any missed areas of attention. In the case where the left-hairs, can not be applied over a foam or a gel - wet blade enough hot water and walk on it "dry".
