1. Wet your face with warm water. You may want to hold a wet washcloth to your beard for a few minutes to soften the skin.

2. Fill the sink basin halfway with water.

3. Get out a new razor, or replace the used blade in your regular razor.

4. Squirt a dollop of shaving cream into your hand or shake out shaving powder, and apply it to your beard in upward circular motions. The amount may vary depending on the thickness of your beard, but the area to be shaved should be covered uniformly.

5. Shave downward, the way your whiskers grow, from your sideburns toward your mandible using long, even strokes. Apply light but firm pressure, pulling your skin taut before each stroke.

6. Rinse your razor with warm water after every stroke or two to keep it from getting clogged with hair.

7. Shave the area around your chin. Shave upward as necessary to make the area smooth. When shaving under your chin, pull the razor from your throat area toward your chin.

8. Shave your upper lip, keeping the skin tight by curling your lip over your front teeth.

9. Wash off any excess shaving cream and examine your face for straggling hairs. Check the edge of your jaw, around your ears, and near your lips and nostrils for missed hairs. Go back with the razor to shave any hairs you missed.

10. Drain and wash out the basin and apply cold water or aftershave as desired.

first, wash your face with a hot washcloth. It takes the grease off your face and the heat makes it easier to shave.

lather on the shaving cream (or gel) on all parts you want to shave. considering your just starting, you probably don't need to shave your whole face.
with the razor, shaze with smooth, downward strokes. don't shave the same spot more than a couple times, or you'll get razor burn.
If you're shaving under your chin, shave upwards, but be careful, your skin is more sensitive there.
For your upper lip, take it very slow there, like only take little short strokes at a time. Otherwise, the razor will catch on this rougher area.
hope this helps.
