For those of you that like a close shave here are four steps on how to achieve the perfect shave from Men’s Journal:

"Step One 
Make sure you’ve prepped your beard with warm water. Ideally, you’ll shave in the shower, but after-shower shaving works nearly as well.

Step Two
Once the moisture has softened your whiskers, massage some lubricant into your beard. Purists insist on a thick-lather cream, but gel provides a more than adequate alternative, and lets you see what you’re doing as you shave your sideburns.

Step Three
Now you’re ready to shave. Apply light pressure, and shave with the direction of your whiskers to minimize irritation. When you’re done, splash cold water on your newly shorn cheeks to close up the pores.

Step Four
After you’ve patted your face dry, moisturize with an aftershave balm. The moisture soothes your skin and prepares it for the next time you.”
