Every guy shaves! Well, almost every guy shaves, there are some beard purists out there, who just let it all grow in… and guys… we love you too!
But for those guys who wake up every morning and have have to face the razor, I want to give you some advice. See, I was never really taught how to shave. I just went at my face with cold water, a single blade Bic and some Barbasol. It was an utter shit show!
It hurt so badly and my neck would bleed. I hated it! I also had acne at the time, so shaving over open breakouts was a true pleasure! It wasn’t until college, when my college bestie, Bill B and I were talking about shaving and I told him my process. He was like, “That sounds dreadful!” (Bill was kinda Boujie) Then he gave me some very sound advice, that I’ve listened to ever since. I’m going to take it as my own and share it with you!
BARRY’S TIPS TO SHAVING
Wash your face and neck with hot water to soften the beard.
- Get a twin blade razor.
- Get a really good shave cream.
- Shave in the shower.
I’ve followed Bill’s advice since I was 18 and shaving has been painless for me! However, over the years the products that I’ve used for pre-shave, shaving and post-shave have changed and improved as I’ve learned more about how to care for my skin.
I want to share with you some of my go to shaving products that I swear you’ll LOVE!
