If you don’t have the time to get a professional shave before the weekend kicks off? Or if you simply prefer to have a fresh face every morning, don’t worry, follow MOJEH Men’s got you covered with these five tips for a great shave from the comfort of your own home.

Shower first

While a hot and steamy shower in the morning helps you get a fresh start to your day, the moisture and heat help soften your skin and hair making it easier for you to shave. It also helps you achieve a closer shave without risking cutting your skin.

Go With The Grain

While it might be tempting to shave against the grain to achieve a closer shave, don’t! Shaving against the grain will increase the chances of irritation and might cause you to cut your skin. Now, we don’t want that, do we?

Avoid After Shave

Aftershave products contain alcohol contents that help kill any bacteria that could cause skin infections. Although helpful, they can cause irritation and leave your skin dehydrated. Replace it with a face balm that achieves the same result but leaves your skin fresh. See our product guide below.

Slow, Steady, & Light

Do not rush into it. Sliding the razor quickly across your face increases the risk of cuts, irritation, and you might actually miss a spot, or two. Going slow and light helps achieve a better shave and protects your skin. Your face is an important asset, look after it.

SPF Is Your Friend

Shaving helps remove dead skin cells and is a form of exfoliation, so a freshly shaved face is prone to sun damage as the skin is fresh and still vulnerable. Use a moisturizer with SPF or simply apply a sunscreen with a high SPF. Sun protection products are proven to delay ageing, too!
