Dry shaving is the default method for electric razors. The term means you’re not using water or products to prep for the process.

Trim your before shaving if it’s too long.
Surprise! Go Against the Grain
You’ve probably heard all your life that ; this isn’t true for electric razors. Going with the grain won’t pick up as much hair, so going against it is recommended. Use a circular motion for a more efficient shave and to reduce irritation. Avoid applying too much pressure on your skin, since this doesn’t only lead to bumps, it can also cause lacerations!
Prep Your Skin for a Wet Shave
You could also go for a wet shave with electric razors. Before doing so, wash your face with warm water (not hot!) to soften the hair and get rid of excess oil. You could apply baby powder like an OG barber if you like; if not, regular pre-shave products will do. Remember to go against the grain and apply light pressure to prevent skin problems and accidents.
