That sharp blade is flush against your skin. So, be careful, but if you master the craft, you’ll never look back. The shave requires more attention and precision, but it puts you in more control over the process. First things first: Keep the skin tight as you shave. You don’t want to drag the razor, lose your grip, or accidentally apply pressure. All that to say, a safety razor promises a safer, healthier shave when done correctly.
The biggest obstacle between you and a good beard is time. The beard you’re capable of growing might be way bigger and fuller than you anticipate, simply because you haven’t ever grown it past the patchy first-month. Brushing your beard at the end of each day will ensure its health and tame-ability in the long haul, and also from one day to the next.
