Health Tip: Getting a Clean Shave

(HealthDay News) -- Shaving without cutting yourself or missing patches of hair can be a challenge, says the American Academy of Dermatology.

To get a proper shave, the academy recommends:

  • Before you shave, wet your skin and hair.
  • Shave in the direction that the hair grows.
  • Rinse after each swipe of the razor.
  • Store your razor in a dry area.
  • People who have acne should take special care while shaving.
