- You can determine the areas that require shaving (such as your face, legs or underarms), or the location of a nick or scratch, by using your sense of touch.
- If you’ve had sight previously and like to stand in front of a mirror when you shave, you can continue to do so. Many people say that it feels more comfortable and natural to use a mirror, even when it’s difficult to see clearly.
- You can also use a magnifying mirror with an adjustable arm to enlarge the image of your face and head.
- Your basic shaving supplies should include a razor, shaving cream or lotion, aftershave, a washcloth, and a towel.
- Assemble all your shaving supplies before you begin. You can gather them on a tray, a washcloth, or a hand towel.
- Wash the area to be shaved with soap and water and pat dry. This will soften your hair or whiskers, which makes it easier to shave them cleanly and safely.
- If you use a safety razor, use shaving cream or lotion. It will protect your skin and help you better locate the areas you’ve already shaved.
