Shaving your face is different for everyone. Every man has developed his own way of shaving throughout the years. In this post I want to share with you what I think will work for most men who seek to develop a good shaving technique.
Good shaving technique comes down to understanding the direction of hair growth. I advise you to shave with the grain then across the grain to avoid ingrown hairs and irritations. In addition I advise you to divide the face in different areas and adjust the shaving direction and stroke length during your shave to suit each area properly.
The face can be divided in different areas. Start with shaving from the sideburn downwards to the jaw line. Make sure you use sharp blades and apply little pressure. Applying too much pressure will remove too many surface cells which will cause irritation. Once you reached the jawline, do not attempt to go over the curve in one go. Rather, shave above the jawline using small downward strokes. Then do the same under the jawline. The mustache can be removed with few small downward strokes.
I have to emphasize that this is a general technique which works fine in most cases. However I would always advice you to examine your own beard and its direction. At the end no one knows your beard better than yourself.
