If you find that you are struggling or some parts of your face require more attention then apply a touch more shaving cream. We recommend mixing this with a little bit of water too.
The final step to your wet shave!
Once you have finished your shave rinse your face thoroughly with cold water. The warm water that you used previously would have helped to open your pores and relax your face. By using cold water this will close your pores and help regenerate. Next use an after shave moisturiser. This adds another layer of protection and helps to avoid any red marks or razor burns.
