The primary purpose of using a shaving brush when performing a face shave is to gently exfoliate the skin removing dead skin cells and softening the stubble allowing for a smoother shave with less irritation. Badger bristles have a coarse texture which assists in the exfoliation process. The twirling of the shaving brush around the face helps to assist the hair to stand up and away from the face preparing for the shave. The more time that is spent preparing the skin for a shave, the less irritation will occur. Always moisturise the skin after a shave with a good quality aftershave balm.
