The Art of Shaving

My 15-year-old son is fairly new to the Art of Shaving.
He doesn't shave every day ... more like once a month.
and when he does ... let's just say, it looks like it might have been painful.

Practice makes perfect, right?

I think he needs some of those adorable little shaving brushes and pre-shave oil
and after shave.

Maybe then he'd shave more often.

The Art of Shaving has some really cool stuff.
They have also have a page with Tips from Master Barbers.
 Here's an example:

What advice do you give your clients to help them achieve the perfect shave?

1. I recommend shaving during or after the shower. The steam helps prepare the skin for shaving and helps make the beard hair a little easier to cut.
2. Really pay attention to the direction in which the hair grows when applying pre-shave oil. Shave in the direction of hair growth first. If a closer shave is desired, RE-LATHER, then shave lightly against or across the direction of hair growth.
3. Use a properly weighted and balanced razor. This will provide a smoother razor glide and help to minimize razor burn. Be sure to change your blade after 3-5 uses, or when you feel it tugging at your beard as you shave.
4. Rinse with cool water, and then apply our alcohol free after shave balm. This will help close hydrate the skin after your shave.
5. Use the hydrating toner after shaving prior to application of the after-shave balm, or anytime throughout the day! This product will leave your skin feeling fresh and revitalized.

I think I know what my teenager needs for Christmas.
Are there any men in your life who might need it too?
