WHA T’S the key to a great
shave? How about preparation.
Just as you should have a pre-
shot routine in golf, a pre-shave
routine ensures the best results.
And Grooming Lounge’s The
Greatest Shave Ever kit ($71)
has everything you need in
TSA-friendly travel sizes.
First, give yourself a good
scrub using the face wash. Next,
you’ll want to press a hot hand
towel to your face. After you
clean, it’s time to massage in
the pre-shave oil. This will lift
the hairs for a smoother shave.
Now, with the shaving cream
and a clean razor, you’re ready
for the main event. Last comes
the aftershave, but here’s a
final tip: Wash your face again
after your shave and splash
with cold water. This closes
the pores and keeps the after-
shave’s alcohol from drying
out your skin. —Marty Hackel SHAPE UP YOUR SHAVE
