This is a question that has been debated over the years. Some people say it’s better to shave after you wash your face, while others say it’s better to shave before.
Shaving first ensures that your skin is thoroughly clean and free of anything that could clog your razor or cause irritation. But if you shave last, you’re guaranteed a closer shave.
So does one method really work better than the other?
The answer is yes and no. It depends on what type of razor you use and where you’re shaving.
If you have sensitive skin, then you may want to consider shaving after washing your face because it will help your skin stay hydrated and protected from irritation caused by shaving products like lotion or gel.
However, if you’re using an electric razor, then shaving before washing will give you a closer shave since most electric razors don’t reach every hair follicle when they’re used wet (or with water).
