Technique aside, if you are skipping out on your hot shower and/or Bevel Priming Oil, you’re much more likely to experience nicks and cuts. The hot shower and Bevel Priming Oil soften your skin and hair to make sure they yield to the Bevel Razor with ease, no tugging, scraping, or nicks. Moreover, whipping up a proper lather will provide you with a protective layer and, consequently, prevent nicks and cuts.
Nicks and cuts are usually the result of less than perfect technique. You might be moving too quickly, applying too much pressure, using the wrong angle, or simply need to change out your blade.
