6 Steps to a Perfect Mustache
The path to achieving the perfect mustache is, arduous. Really, I know. It can take you more than 6 months to achieve a satisfying mustache.
On the route to the perfect mustache, you will spend some mornings in which you will wake up and feel great desperation. You will want to take it off immediately.
But you must be sure that with patience, practice, and a well-planned routine, you will have a mustache that you will want to show off, and of which you will be proud. Follow these 6 steps for a perfect mustache.
Step 1: Prepare Your Skin
Your skin needs to be primed before you shave. An essential condition is to have warm, clean, and moist skin, to achieve a close shave, without causing irritation, and to achieve a better definition of the mustache lines.
You can either clean it (doing a facial wash) using a beard and mustache wash, or exfoliate it (using a product with small abrasive beads) before shaving. An exfoliator will help remove dead skin and facial oil, which can clog your razor. You shouldn’t use scrubs more than 2-3 times a week. Overuse of exfoliating treatments can damage your skin.
Step 2: Preparing The Shave
You should always use pre-shave oil. Any of these products will help you lubricate your skin and allow a closer and more comfortable shave.
By applying the pre-shave oil evenly to damp skin, you will achieve perfect lubrication and zero friction between the razor and your skin.
Step 3: Scratch Yourself
Don’t be rude when using your razor or razor. Allow it to glide and glide slightly on your skin. Remove hair from your cheeks and neck, before working on your mustache.
In delicate areas (above the mustache and at the tips of the mustache) use a precision razor.
Do it slowly and steadily. One wrong move can ruin everything!
Step 4: After Shave Care
It is really important at the end of your shave, to give your face adequate care. Just as warm water opens your pores, washing your face with cold water after shaving will close them.
Subsequently, apply an after-shave balm or the aftershave lotion of your choice. This will help your skin rehydrate and control redness.
You can reduce irritation with beard oils.
Step 5: Shape Your Mustache
This is the key step. Once you’ve removed the excess hair from your face and neck, it’s time to style and shape your mustache.
Take some scissors, preferably special for mustache, and cut along the line of your upper lip. The idea is to remove any hair that sticks out of this line. Some brothers prefer very long or very bushy mustaches, but if you are looking for a more refined style, the secret is in the line that goes on the upper lip.
Trim the ends of your mustache so that they are perfectly symmetrical. Try to twist the ends a bit and cut them at an angle. With the scissors pointed up, carefully cut the center of the mustache. This will help define the style.
Step 6: Style Your Mustache
Time to get some mustache wax. Mustache wax is the best medium to achieve a medium to the stronghold, and it will allow you to style your mustache elegantly.
