Known as the best hot shave in Fort Lauderdale, Joe has world wide customers that get hot shaves by him whenever they are in town. The Steam hot towel straight edge shave is a 30-40 minute process. While a steam machine keeps face moist and the hair soft for an easier smoother shave. Finished with a 9 naturalhealing ingredients clear after shave mask that soothes and rehydrate the skin. Tips and tricks to perform a better shave yourself at home is. NOT to press the razor tight against yourskin trying to get a tight shave. Let the weight of the razor do thejob but tilt the razor at a slight angle so that the blade slices the hair and not chop it. (an example is cutting vegetables, you press the knife in an angle to slice not straight down to chop). Much easier, less resistance and you will minimize scraping and irritating the skin. Pressing hard against the skin takes layers of skin and that’s why some people get razor burn or in growing hair. Because the skin grows in faster that the hair grows out. If you don’t hurt the skin while shaving you minimize the problem. And always use a daily moisturizer, why? Because on dry soil you only grow cactus.
