When you want to make your shaving blades last longer, first place a hot towel over your face to loosen and soften your beard. This weakens the resistance your whiskers will have against the blades. Second, use a quality shave cream and apply it with a brush. You’ll actually use less shaving cream, and the brush works in the cream to further prepare your beard for the blades.

You can also use a blow dryer for a moment or two and dry the blades immediately after rinsing with hot water.
