- Turn your shaver on; just press the on/off button once.
- If you choose the wet shaving option, you will need to apply water on the face or area to be shaved before applying a gel to it so that there is foam. In dry shaving, you need no water.
- Hold the shaver into shaving position, typically against the direction of hair or beard growth, then shave by using both linear and circular movements.
