The ultimate shaving guide with Royal Philips

We have come up with a short guide for the boys and men in pursuit of the perfect shave.

By Grooming Editor (sponsored post for Royal Philips


Shaving has become a mundane daily chore for many men across the world and in Malaysia. Most men today either shave with an electric razor or a cartridge razor. The former is often preferred as it gives a quicker and more convenient way to achieve a close, clean shave. 

Knowing how to shave correctly is an important skill to have for every sharp gentleman, especially when you stay at home in the 'New Normal'. It is regarded as a man’s skill, yet some men still can’t seem to get that perfect smooth shave. 

We have come up with a short guide for the boys and men in pursuit of the perfect shave. 

Preparation is key 

The most important step of the shaving process comes even before you whip out the shaver. A pre-shave warm shower will soften your skin and hair follicles, allowing you to get a closer shave. 

Next, ensure you are working on clean skin. If your skin is not properly cleaned beforehand, the shaving experience will be less than ideal no matter how great your shaver is. Use a gentle face wash to cleanse your skin and neck to rid of any dead skin cells, oil, or grime, that may get in the way of the razor getting as close to your skin as possible. Neglecting this step of your morning routine will cause irritation to your skin. 

Investing in the right equipment 

We know shaving can be a laborious and boring task for every man. An electric razor does wonders at getting you the best precision for a clean shave. Skip the barbershops and try out our go-to shaver, the Philips Series 1000 shaver that offers a seamless shaving experience at home. Its skin guard puts a stop to those nicks and cuts as well as prevents your skin from getting irritated. If you are someone who prefers a wet shave over a dry shave, or vice versa, the Philips Series 1000 can do both! (Plus point - the Philips Series 1000 is IPX7 water resistant and is fully washable with its one touch one cap feature). What’s more, the 27 mini-blades self-sharpen. This means that this guarantees blades sharpness up to 2 years, ensuring they do not become blunt and irritate your skin.

Keep it gentle while shaving. There is no need to rush especially if you have sensitive skin that is prone to redness and irritation. Avoid pressing the shaver too hard against the skin and trust us when we say that the shaver will do the work for you (thank you, technology). By using the shaver, it truly becomes an effortless way of getting ready in the mornings. 

Apply gentle pressure in small circular motions for a closer shave. This will make your facial hair stand upright and makes it easier for the shaver blades to catch and cut them right up. The gentle pressure also reduces friction between the shaver and your skin for a more comfortable experience. 

Give Yourself Some TLC

You are not done just yet! To finish off your morning routine, the next two steps are crucial for a supple and hydrated face.

It may sound a little crazy but splashing your face with cold water can help calm the skin and prevent unwanted irritation. Once this is done, gently dab your face with a towel and apply your favourite moisturiser or aftershave cream or oil. 

Now that you have mastered the art of a clean shave, every morning will have you looking and feeling like you have just stepped out of a fancy barber shop. If you’re new to the Philips Series 1000 shaver, allow an adjustment of 2 to 3 weeks for your skin to adapt to an electric razor, and you’ll unlock a whole new shaving experience in no time.
