Facial hair has a tendency to grow without notice, and it can be indeed unpleasant to look at. So, men have to resort to shaving off their beard once in a while or quite regularly if you really want to look good.
The foremost important point that all men bent on shaving their unkempt beards should bear in mind is that they should not rush through the operation. Always choose a time when there is not a rush to meet appointments or meetings for shaving.
Wash your face with soap and water to begin the process. Avoid using harsh soaps, or don't use soaps at all. A gentle and mild cleanser is going to do all the required magic. It is the best way you can soften the protein in your hair. Let the cleanser work its magic on your skin for at least a minute before you can rinse your face with warm water.
Using warm water is preferred over using hot water. Hot water is going to remove all essential oils from your skin, and the effort is going to be negated. Apply shaving lather or shaving cream on your skin and churn up a rich lather. This way, your hair is going to be come soft and gentle, and it is going to be a lot easier to shave it off.
For the ideal shave, be sure you have a sharp blade fitted on the razor. Change the blade regularly if you shave regularly. The secret to a great shave always lie through the blade.
