    Best time to shave is after a shower, the hot water on your face will make facial hair stand up and you will get a closer shave. Remember to rinse your face afterwords with cold water. This closes your pores and prevents less breakouts and such.

    Good, basic instructable...I agree with the pics comment, but think that is self critiquing. Next, you should try using a badger shaving brush, quality shaving soap, and an old-school safety razor. The multi-blade razors made today make it easy, but also leave your skin prone to ingrown hairs and razor burn. Since I switched to a brush and safety razor over 25 years ago, I have never had any problems. Shaving is no longer a chore is quite enjoyable. Good luck.
