Step 4: Shaving your Neck and Chin

Picture of Shaving your Neck and Chin
To shave under your chin and your nick, shave from the bottom of your neck upwards. This will help prevent razor burn and ingrown hairs.

When shaving under your chin, pull the razor from your throat area toward your chin.

Remember, as you are shaving be sure to rinse your razor with warm water after every stroke or two to keep it from getting clogged with hair.

I HATE SHAVING...Just did it yesterday and my neck is a mess with razor burn and ingrown hairs. I'm 20 so I'm relatively new to shaving, and don't shave regularly at all. At this point in my life my acne is gone so I don't mind having a clean-shaven face, but I hate how messed up my neck gets. I'll try this solution to see if it works.

I've heard that using warm water to rinse is a bad idea. Your blade swells and you lose the sharpest edge. I don't know any studies on this, it's just what I've heard.

I have always heard the opposite - saving against the grain of your hair (from the bottom of the neck towards the chin) will cause razor burn and ingrown hairs. Perhaps someone else can confirm. Thanks.
