Clean the electric shaver
You need to follow the instructions on the manual before you start to shave. First of all, clean the electric shaver’s head with the help of a cleaning brush and make sure there are no hair as they will deny a smooth shaving process. You can buy the brush from a local cosmetics store if it is not provided with your shaver kit.
Wash face with warm water
You must wash your face with warm water before you start the shaving process. Warm water is helpful in softening the facial hair which will make it easier for you to get rid of them while you shave. Make sure the water is mild and not too hot otherwise you will feel irritation.
You can apply a pre-shaving lotion before shaving so that the skin is further softened. Although, the hair get soft with warm water, they get even easier to shave if you apply a pre-shave lotion. A talcum powder can also be used instead to smoothen the process of shaving.
Use the electric shaver
The most important thing that you need to take care of is to shave with the grain. Shaving against it would cause irritation and redness afterwards. If you feel pain while shaving, apply a small amount of talcum powder or pre-shave lotion so that everything goes smoothly.
