Have you ever watched a makeup tutorial and wondered how the products glide seamlessly on the skin? Have you ever thought why some influencers and models have even-toned, glowing skin even sans makeup? Well, the biggest beauty secret of every makeup artist or enthusiast is to always work on squeaky-clean skin. While a good skincare regime and a healthy diet are the key steps to achieving it, facial hair shaving has a huge contribution to getting the dreamy, glabrous skin that you may yearn for. Now, facial hair removal is a personal choice. But given its multitude of aesthetic and skincare benefits, if you’re convinced about giving it a try, here’s a detailed guide on how to use a face razor:
How To Choose The Right Razor
Before we understand how to use a face razor, it’s important to know about the different types of facial shaving tools available in the market. So let’s talk about the four most common types of face razors available and their pros and cons to help you choose the right one for yourself:
As the name suggests, this face razor has only one blade and cuts the hair close to the skin’s surface. It is perfect for removing peach fuzz and dead skin with minimal risk of cuts, burns, and ingrowns–if you’re familiar with handling razors. The best part? They can move through the contours of the face easily and remove hair even from the smaller areas like the eyebrows and upper lip.
Safety Blade Razor
Safety blade razors also have one blade but they come with a protective barrier between the blade’s edge and the skin. Even though they’re beginner-friendly, they may not be appropriate for those with coarse hair on the face.
Razors with more than one blade work by pulling the hair up and then cutting it as close to the skin as possible. Now, they may give you a close shave, but they can cause more friction, burns, cuts, and ingrowns. However, they’re easier to use and are perfect for beginners.
Electric razors are battery-operated pen-sized shaving tools with rotating blades and a metal guard to remove the hair automatically. They’re safer and way easier to use and can remove hair even from the trickier areas of the face like your eyebrows and upper lip.
How Use Face Razor
In order to cash in on the benefits of facial shaving, you must understand how to use a face razor correctly. Here’s an easy four-step guide to help you maneuver your razor seamlessly:
Always start with a squeaky-clean base. Wash your face with a mild cleanser and water and pat it dry with a clean towel.
Apply a shaving barrier of choice like a shaving foam or a mild soap to help the razor glide smoothly and reduce friction between the blade and your skin. Pro tip: you can also opt for dry shaving if you’re short on time or traveling.
Hold your skin taut, place the razor at a 45-degree and with the skin and gently stroke it in the direction of the hair growth. Shave one patch at a time. In case of an electric razor, all you need to do is to run the tool on the different patches to remove the hair.
Rinse your face with warm water, pat it dry, and finish off by generously applying moisturiser to hydrate your skin.
