First of all: NEVER use an electric shaver. Start using a plain blade razor. This not only gets a closer shave, but it also makes your skin toughen up, which makes shaving later a LOT easier. If you start using an electric razor and later have to switch to a blade, it will be a bloodbath. Also, if you use an electric razor you will develop little 'knobs'. If you ever look at old men, they sometimes have random lumps of flesh on their cheeks from using electric razors their entire life. Secondly: Start by using warm water, not cold. While cold water may close up pores and prevent lopping off zits, it also closes hair follicles and makes the hairs harder to shave off. To that end, shave after your shower. The steam and heat from it helps a lot by loosening the skin on your facing, making hair easier to shave. Finally: get used to blood. The first few times, before your skin gets used to being shaved and toughens up, you will almost always get slashed. This is normal, it might hurt like hell, but in the end it's better. So, you've started shaving. Congrats! Right now you might be annoyed by having to shave once every month or so, but it only gets quicker. Right now I have to shave about twice a week, and for older people it only gets faster. But, that's cool.

For ROTC, I have to shave before every uniform day (A little blond mustache doesn't look good, so I cut that off as well). Use HOT water, it might make your face red, and burn, but it does help before you shave. Then, after you shave, use some aftershve, sealant, or cold water to help close up the skin.

I would suggest using an electric razor or warm shave gel. Also, make sure the water is a bit hotter than usual and use aftershave when you are done. I had the same problem when I first started shaving, and that really helped a lot.

Looks like a lot of people here use aftershave. I never did, I'm doing just fine with my foam and razorblade. Hell sometimes I still shave without foam if I can not be bothered to apply foam to my face. No problems what so ever.

I don't really care how you're suppossed to shave.. How ever gets the hair cut is my technique.

I usually take a shower and shave when I'm done showering. If you know your face well or don't have any large pimples, you can shave in the shower with hot water constantly pouring on the shave and to-be-shaved area. (It's the fastest and nicest way for me) Just be careful not to shave in the shower if you have any sort of pimples or cuts on your face. I stress this heavly, for you won't see your face and could get cut pretty badly. :S

When feeling lazy, I'll walk into the bathroom, get the razor wet, and just shave that way.

Most times a splash of cold water to the face until wet thouroghly, a wet razor, and I'm shaving.

The exact sam for me, I often can be found shaving while under the shower (with a normal razor blade) but I supose a lot of man do this. It's just more comfortable and makes up for a good excuus not to get away from under the shower within 5 minutes. :p

Try using Gilette series aftershave lotion. It calms the skin after the shave. To stop bleeding, there are stiptic pencils. Basically a stick of salt, and making good use of the saying "putting salt on the wound", they work quite well. you wet it and apply it to the cut. It stings like hell but almost instantly stops bleeding.

Currently I shave about twice a week, and I use gilette shaving gel (turns into foam once you apply it) and the gilette mach3 razor. Some people prefer to buy tons of one-way razors, but I don't like the way cheap razors cut up your face.

If you're in a hurry and want to stop bleeding, use an alcohol-based aftershave. Stings as well, doesn't work quite as well as the stiptic pencil though.
