1. You don't have to shave in the shower. Just be sure to get your face soaked in plenty of warm water IN the shower immediately before you shave.
2. Don't you dare use that electric! An electric will never be able to replicate the closeness, the exfoliating properties, or the precision of a razor.
3. Lose those expensive multiple blade pieces of crap, buy a single or double blade razor.
How to shave - as according to Jordan
1. Heat and cleanse.
Right before you shave either A) take a hot-warm shower and be sure to rinse your face. Use a gentle cleanser. If a shower is not an option - soak towels with warm to hot water and put them over your face and neck.
2. Mirror and prep
Buy a shave CREAM. Not a foam, not that weird puffy mouse like crap that your dad used, but actual shave cream. My personal favorite is Anthony Logistics, but Target's Everyday Jack is a close second. The most popular, however, is the shave cream by Jack Black... but for the price... Anyways...
Once you have your shave cream - generously apply it to your face after you get out of the shower. Do not dry your face off before doing this. Dry your body and your hair, but leave your face wet. Splash on some warm water from the sink and THEN apply the shave cream. Work in circular motions - focusing special attention on the area around the mouth, the chin, and the neck (generally these hairs tend to be thicker and rougher).
Now - BE PATIENT! Let the shave cream work its magic. Let it soak for somewhere around 5 minutes.
When you put the razor against your face - do not apply it directly on, but come in at an angle. Allow the moisture pad (located at the top part of the shaving surface) hit your face first and allow the rest of the razor to arc in against your skin. DO NOT press the razor AGAINST your skin and go WITH the grain of your hair. That is, to say, if you were shaving your cheek - you would move from your cheek bone and down.
With the razor, from your starting point (I usually start at my cheeks because this hair is generally thinner than other parts of the facial hair and therefore needs less time exposed to the shave cream) move slowly down. Do not force the razor, but let it's own weight do the cutting action. Do not move quickly, otherwise your going to slice your damn face open. And... any painful sensations - that's because your forcing it, moving too fast, or don't have a lubrication - your no longer cutting the hairs on your face, but instead ripping them out.
After your first stroke, and after every stroke - Rinse the razor under warm to hot water. Do not wipe it off on a towel, do not fill your sink with water and swish it around in that - rinse it like you would a tooth brush - being sure to get as much hair as possible off.
Keep going around your face - start at the cheeks of each side, then your side burns, then work down your neck - leaving the middle section for last. Move up to where a mustache would reside, do the chin, and then shave the mid neck.
