COMMON SHAVING MISTAKES – MEN’S GROOMING

COMMON SHAVING MISTAKES – MEN’S GROOMING

Trimming and shaving your face is a personal ritual that will differ for every man depending on genetics and preference of style. However, there are some very common shaving mistakes that we see far too often and that most men can benefit from correcting. Fixing the following mistakes will not only result in a more attractive and clean appearance, but also in a more comfortable shave.

Here are the most common shaving mistakes that men make:

  • Not considering the shape of your face

Do you have a triangular shaped face with a narrow jaw? You should probably keep a beard with strong angles to add structure. Do you have a very strong jawline? Maybe a non-edged 5 o’clock shadow is your best option to avoid looking excessively rough. The point is that your beard style should be determined by the shape of your face, not the latest trend.

  • Letting your mustache grow over your lips

Mustache can be cool (sometimes), but it must be kept from growing over your tip lips to avoid looking messy. Therefore grab a pair of scissors and trim the bottom edge, making sure that the top lip is completely visible.

  • Not shaving the back of your neck

Often neglected, the back of your neck should be cleaned up every time you shave your face. As your neck hair grow faster than on the rest of your head, waiting for your next haircut to get this part done is not acceptable. Because shaving your neckline is tricky, using a template like Nekmate is a must to obtain a straight line effortlessly.

  • Not shaving against the grain

The best way to shave is against the grain. If you use a sharp razor, shaving against the grain with allow you shave a specific area in just one motion. You’ll minimize irritation and maximize results.

  • Being excessively meticulous

While proper grooming is crucial, you should avoid being too meticulous with it. Overly straight edges, unnatural shapes and visible products on your beard are not the most masculine traits.

  • Shaving every day

Do your skin a favor and avoid shaving every single day. Let your skin rest. Not only you will look better than you would with irritated and cut skin, you will also feel better.

  • Using cold water during the shave

Cold water makes your pores smaller. Hot water opens your pores and relaxes your skin, which is ideal for shaving. Ideally, you should use hot water before and during the shave, then switch to cold water when you rinse off in order to let your skin recover from any micro-cuts that the razor may have caused.
