Wet shaving

Wet shaving uses water, shaving cream, foam or gel and a sharp razor, usually with one or more blades. The steps include:

  1. Preparing the Skin : Warm water or steam helps soften hair and open skin pores, making shaving easier.
  2. Applying the shaving product : A lubricant (shaving cream, foam, or gel) is applied to minimize friction and protect the skin.
  3. Shaving : A sharp razor is used to shave the skin in the direction or against the direction of hair growth, depending on the sensitivity of the skin and the level of thoroughness desired.
  4. Aftercare : Skin is rinsed with cold water to close pores and a moisturizing or soothing aftershave lotion is applied to reduce irritation.
