Getting the closest shave is as much about skin preparation as it is about the razor you are using.
Using a shaving brush with a good shaving cream will ensure the perfect preparation for a close shave. A shaving brush is designed to lift the hairs away from the face to ensure the closest shave. This in turn will lead to less skin irritation and minimise the risk of ingrown hairs.
The action of preparing your skin with a brush will also exfoliate the skin, removing impurities and any beardruff (beard dandruff).
