How To Shave Your Face

Beard is a facial hair grown in men, one of the most differentiating qualities from women, and is the basis of man's biological matter. It is supposed to grow over the chin and cheek, through the jaw and neck. The beard is exposing the segmentation of the androgen and testosterone glands in the male human body.


Moustache is the subject under beard only but it grows over the space between the nose and upper lip. The completely grown mustache would touch either side of the beard. 

Removing Beard and Moustache

The removal of beard and mustache from the facial skin is possible with the term called 'shaving' or 'trimming'. The shaving is intended to complete the removal of the beard from the level of follicles attached to the skin whereas trimming is the technique of cutting hair to the desired length.


Shaving is the process of removing hair, with the help of a razor or any other kind of bladed implement, to cut it down to the level of the skin. However, the razor alone can't cut the hair. The hair has to be got with water and other shaving solutions namely, shaving cream, shaving gel, and shaving conditioner.

Below are the thorough steps to shave the face

Step 1: Wet Your Beard

Beard is a solid dense hair gathered so closely attached to the skin cells of the face. This hair can't be plucked to remove them for regrowth. They have to be shaved gently. The gentleness needs to be smooth and comfortable. The hair which is dry by nature does not cut itself with a blade. It needs to be molded to get cut, the whole hair, at a time. Thus the first step to shave a beard is to make it wet with water. This softens the whiskers to obey the razor blade. The whole beard is soaked enough with water. 

However, the water could only soften the hair. The blade when put on wet hair with water moisturization alone, the friction produced between the blade, the hair, and the skin is way higher. It hurts the person. Thus, there are available shaving creams to avoid friction and give a smooth flow to the razor to shave off the beard in less time.

Step 2: Apply Cream

The wet hair alone cannot access shaving. The beard needs some ingredients to become feasible to cut. The shaving cream is the best comfort solution for shaving. A finger-tip size cream is to be collected on hand first, then a very little of it is pointed on the wet beard. These points should be at least 5 to 6 to cover the whole board position from chin to cheek, and jaw to neck. 

Step 3: Use a Shaving Brush to Apply Cream

You need not rub the whole beard with your palms. There is available equipment especially meant to brush the beard with the applied shaving cream at different points. The shaving brush is to be soaked in a mug of water just to make it wet so that it can produce enough foam when painted on the beard. The brush is first placed at the cream point, then gently rotated at the spot. This rotation makes the cream become foam. This foam has to be spread all over the beard with the help of all other cream points.

The shaving brush should be able to spread the foam cream to every inch of the beard. Thus, the brush is to be moved right and left, and left and right, top to bottom, and bottom to top, in all possible directions and angles. 

Step 4: Use a Quality Razor

The foamed beard is so fragile and delicate that any sharp-edged object is moved through it leading to smooth hair removal. The razor is best preferred to shave your beard. If it is a blade-equipped razor, it is mandated to use a new blade every time you see it. These days, there are razors manufactured that don't need blades. Their sharp edges would work as blades. Their special mechanism keeps it working for more than one time. Of course, a razor is like a condom, toothbrush, underwear, etc., that it should be strictly used by oneself alone.

The razor has to start pulling out foam from sideburns and gently move down to the chin. When one side is done, go to the other side. Repeat the move repeatedly until you feel a smooth surface or root hair on the skin. During the repeated moves, rinse Your razor often with the arranged water in a mug. 


Once the shave is done successfully, you feel that the skin can breathe, too. You may feel like the air is flowing in and out of your pores. You may better use aftershave products like face wash, beard Wax, beard wash, etc., to avoid various infections, acne, scars, pollution, dirt, etc., that attempt to enter the pores. These products enable gentle hair regrowth.
