Razor blade is run under hot water to warm it.
Work up a foam with Facial Shampoo. For extremely dry and sensitive skin, instead use a thin layer of Calming Bio lipid Fluid lightly over the beard area. This lubricates the skin and allows better glide. Shave with both hands, one stretching the skin and the other holding the blade.
