How to get a close shave

Did you know?

It might take up to a month for your skin to adjust to the new method of shaving when you switch from a rotary shaver or manual razor. It’s like your hairline - it takes time to switch from a side to a middle parting. So, give it time.

Step 1

Make sure your shaver is charged and ready to go.

Step 2

Try to shave before washing your face, as skin tends to be slightly swollen after washing.

Step 3

After a few days without shaving, for example over the weekend, it's best to trim your stubble before you shave.

Step 4

Now, turn the Braun shaver on. Stretch the skin with your free hand before shaving extra sensitive areas or places that need a closer shave. This ensures a smooth glide across your skin.

Step 5

Hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. Remember that avoiding going over the same areas repeatedly increases your chances of avoiding skin irritation.

Step 6

Keep the pressure even to achieve the best possible shave. No need to push as hard as you do with a manual razor.

Step 7

Clean your shaver regularly. Depending on the model, you may be able to use the Braun cleaning centre that automatically cleans and lubricates your shaver at the push of a button.


we recommend you replace the cutting parts every 18 months as they become worn down. Don’t use too much pressure and stick with it!
