Face Shaving Tips: Coarse or Tough Beard

If you feel discomfort while shaving, it could be because you are not shaving appropriately for the texture of your hair. There’s no need to bully your beard: The following suggestions will help you get a more comfortable shave.

Wash and hydrate

Use a shaving cream 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 Fusion ProGlide Power Razor with Flexball Technology, to help reduce pressure on each blade for more comfort and less shaving irritation. For men with sensitive skin, Gillette SkinGuard Razor is the best razor for them.

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.
