How do I shave?

Now, this is gonna be a shocker we know, but hacking away at your skin with a plastic razor and tossing it in the corner isn't doing you any favors. Shaving with a single-blade razor isn't dramatically different, it's simply shaving to take care of your skin. 

  1. Shave at the end of your shower so your skin & hair are soft. 
  2. Apply our shave gel-to-milk because it’s stunning, it works, and it lasts. Just sayin’
  3. Shave. If your skin is particularly sensitive, shave in the direction of hair growth.
  4. Keep your skin moisturized (we've got a thing for that) between shaves- it helps to prevent ingrown hairs. 
  5. Store your razor in a dry area. I know, so sorry to share that tidbit but it is also recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology. Bacteria and skin don’t play nicely together.   
  6. Change your blades after 5-7 uses. Again, recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology. We know it’s standard to hold onto blades til it feels like you’re shaving with a butter knife, but it does no good by your skin.
