The breakdown
  • 01
    First, wash your face

    Washing your face before shaving will clear the dirt and dead skin that’s lodged in your pores—a leading cause of ingrown hairs and razor burn.

  • 02
    Shave with the grain

    Shaving against the grain will cause your facial hair to regrow in weird ways—like curled into your skin (hello, ingrown) creating painful razor bumps.

  • 03
    Use a toner

    Follow your shave with an exfoliating toner. This will soothe your skin and keep your pores clear of anything that might cause an ingrown.
