The title says it all, but technique is easy to overlook/lose. After 12 months absence from DE shaving upon resuming I have been dismayed to be suffering from poor shaves and quite a lot of irritation. Didn't stop to really think about it until tonight when I spent time in front of the mirror re mapping my face. I discovered that I was not shaving the way I had when I perfected a good shave. Daft though it sounds as soon as I saw this I remembered exactly how I used to shave. I then had a 3 pass shave which is the best shave I have ever had. Hopefully some of our newer members reading this may pause and realise that it is important not to think shaving is easy. Take time to see how your whiskers grow in different areas of your face, and perfect your technique by shaving accordingly. I still can't believe that I just plowed ahead into shaving again without even thinking doh!
