We recommend you to shave in the shower since the steam opens up the pores and softens skin and it would be easier to perform shaving after all.
Tip 4: Use Face Moisturizer
The lack of humidity in the air during winter can sap the moisture from your skin. All you have to remember is moisture, moisture, and moisture.
