When crunched for time, some men opt for a dry shave instead of indulging in a lengthy wet shave. However, to avoid unsightly razor bumps, follow a short procedure for dry shaving as well:
Start by draping a moist cloth over your face for a few minutes to soften the skin. Dry off, making sure to sop up any excess moisture. Dust your face with powder then, using an electric razor, shave against the direction of hair growth.
For razors with rotating blades, work in a circular motion; for straight blades, long strokes are best. Rinse with cool water and be sure to follow up with a creamy moisturizer to refresh your skin.
