So, I use my straight razor- that i cut hair with, on my legs and ... well (; . A few things to keep in mind for any of you guys.
1.) Always exfoliate before you shave.
2.) Do not use heavy creams on your face afterwords! That WILL cause your pores to get over saturated with oils and lead to breakouts and ingrown hairs.
3.) Do not use scented anything...
to exfoliate I make up a batch of Sea Salt and Steal Cut Oats. 50/50 and put that in a food processor. Make sure it's nice and powdery, you don't want to scratch the heck out of your skin.
This stuff is also amazing as regular face wash. Salt opens the pores and removes toxins. The oatmeal leaves a light layer of moisture. <- that is important because your skin is now clean and exposed. If it doesn't have that moisture you will dry out or your skin will release oils to protect its self. Both of those things lead to breakouts and irritation.
I don't use any shaving cream because the moisture from the oatmeal is already there, and gets me a nice close shave anyway.
In the mixture of Salt and Oatmeal you can also add rosemary essential oils. Why? Well it will help prevent scaring, and heal old scars on your face. (acne scars, manly brawls etc. )
Do not use heavy creams on your face after!!!!!!!!! Just don't do it. It goes back to what I said earlier about your face trying to protect its self. Use Jojoba oil! It the closest composition to what oils are naturally produced by your skin. You won't breakout because your body is used to that composition of oils.
Also. If you start using the face scrub, you might experience a breakout (i haven't and no one I have given it to has, yet) because the salt will draw out the impurities deep in your pores.
