If you are not able to visit the barbershop, but you still want to keep your beard perfectly trimmed, keep on reading to learn tips on how to do so from home.
Most importantly, keep in mind that when shaving, use a hot towel or shave right after or during your shower to prep the skin. “The steam softens the skin making it easier for the razor to glide smoothly and provide a closer shave”, says dermatologist Jordis Volpe.

Step by Step Using A Trimmer
First, wash your face and beard with a specific product, such as the Natura Homem Cleansing Gel . It is important that your skin and beard are clean and hydrated. Make sure to towel dry your beard, this way you can see what the final outcome would look like.
Start at the sides, measure two fingers from the sideburns. Make sure the trimmer is going in the same direction as the beard to prevent it from cutting more than necessary.
If you are going to trim the whole beard, start with a setting at 3 or 5, going from the ears to the chin. This will ensure it will look nicely shaped.
Around the mustache, it is ideal to forgo any clippers to design the outline on the upper lip. If you see some misaligned strands, use the scissors to trim those off.
Apply the Shaving Cream , by Natura Homem, on the lines of the cheekbones. Draw a straight line, counting one or two fingers from your Adam's apple. Use the blade to remove any misaligned strands in these regions.
Lastly, wash your face with cold water. If your beard is short, use the Natura Homem Aftershave Balm . It absorbs fast, soothes the skin and there is no alcohol in the formula. And if your beard is long, apply a beard oil. It will be the perfect finishing touch, leaving your beard softer, brighter and more hydrated.
