Beards might be all the rage right now, but we know that you’re a man of more sophisticated taste. A clean shave is suave, and it’s got nothing to do with the fact that you can’t grow a beard like your mates. So, shake things up with our 7-step guide to cheating the perfect clean shave:
1. Comb and Wash Your Unruly Beard
Tame your facial fuzz before taking a shaver to it. Wash and comb your beard to avoid any awkward snags down the line.
2. Prepare and Apply Your Shaving Foam
Good shaving foam can mean the difference between an average shave and a great shave. It lubricates your face to make sure your shaver glides smoothly over your skin instead of through it. Apply generously!
3. A Cheeky Shave
Starting with your cheeks, take your Style Series F5 Foil Shaver and begin shaving in the direction of your hair growth. It’s the one direction that matters.
4. Jaw to Neck
Follow that shave down to the underside of your face, once again shaving with the growth of your hair from your jaw to your neck. Make sure you get those tough nooks beneath the corners of your jaw.
5. Remove Your Goatee
It’s time to part with your Tony Stark: shave off the goatee, taking extra care around your lips.
6. Get even closer
Use the right length setting of your Remington Lithium Barba Beard Trimmer to trim down your stubble then grab your Style Series F5 Foil Shaver and start shaving – remember to keep in the same direction as the growth of your hair.
7. Rinse, Repeat
Rinse off your face and feel the lay of the land to make sure there’re no stray hairs on your jaw or below your earlobes. One small patch of fluff is all it takes to undo your crisp clean shave.
8. Moisturise and Finish
Shaving often aggravates your skin, so moisturise right away to keep your face looking healthy and young. Voila! A shave so great that even God will start to wonder if the beard trend has gone the way of the dinosaurs.
