Use a Brush
Fascinated by the rough-looking brushes that dot barbershop counters? The took, often called a badger brush, is primarily used on your guy's face...which doesn't mean you can't give it a spin, too! "You really get the closest shave with gel and a brush," says Dr. Debra Jaliman, cosmetic dermatologist and author of Skin Rules. Use it to rub shaving cream in.
