How to shave a beard is something many gents ask me. They decided to shave their beards after letting it grow for a while. This change of style asks for some preparation to shave a beard properly. There are two essential steps.
1. Trim the beard using clippers to a manageable length
Before shaving a beard, use clippers or a beard trimmer. Trying to shave a long beard using a razor is difficult and time consuming. The long facial hair will clog the razor easily and make it uncomfortable to use.
2. Shave with a razor using proper shaving technique
The second step is to shave with a razor using proper shaving technique. This consists of three essential steps: 1. Prep your skin well using hot water and shaving cream 2. shave with the grain and then across the grain. Avoid shaving against the grain. 3. Use cold water to close the pores and an aftershave to allow your skin to recover. Read this post on the perfect shave for a more detailed description.
Keep in mind that after not shaving a beard for a long time, your skin needs time to get used to the razor. So be careful and pay extra attention to preparation and after care.
