Wash and hydrate:
Use a face wash or facial scrub to help soften facial hair before you shave. Also, to soften your facial hair and make it easier to cut, hydrate skin with warm water for at least three minutes before shaving.
Stick with a shave gel that's right for you:
Fusion® ProGlide® Sensitive Shave Gel + Skin Care 2-in-1 defends skin against nicks and cuts while helping soften hair so your razor can comfortably glide for an incredibly close shave.
Try an advanced razor:
Use a multiblade shaving system with blades spaced closer together, such as the ProGlide Razor, to help reduce pressure on each blade for more comfort and less shaving irritation.
Save the best for last:
Shaving your upper lip and around your mouth at the end of your shave will give the shave gel more time to soak in, further softening your facial hair and making it easier to cut.
Check your blades:
Change your blade when you start to experience tugging or discomfort. Certain razors feature an indicator strip that will change to white when you might no longer be getting an optimal shave. Never run out of blades with Gillette — Get started here!
