4 simple steps to shaving with a Nära safety razor.

Step 1: Replacing the blade

  • Your Nära razor consists of three pieces: the handle, the guard (what the blade sits on) and the cap (what sits on top and screws the guard onto the handle)
  • Hold the razor guard in one hand and with the other hand, twist the razor handle until it detaches
  • Remove the cap and carefully place a new blade on the flat surface of the guard, making sure to line up the holes
  • Replace the cap by passing the screw through the middle hole
  • Firmly screw the handle back on

Step 2: Preparing your skin

  • The best way to prepare your skin is to take a shower or bath before you shave. This helps remove dead skin cells, softens the skin and opens the pores
  • If you don’t have time for a shower then simply dampen your skin with warm water and pat dry before you shave

Step 3: Using Nära Shave Oil

  • If you’re using Nära shave oil, it’s recommended to shave after showering
  • Be careful to not spill oil in your shower area as it will become slippery
  • If it’s the first time you’re using the oil, remember to patch test to ensure your skin does not react to the ingredients
  • Pour a generous amount of oil into one hand and massage into your skin before shaving

Step 4: Shaving with a Nära safety razor

  • Shaving with a Nära safety razor may seem difficult at first, but after a few times it becomes super simple
  • Hold the razor at a 30 degree angle and gently glide the razor over your skin
  • Instead of long sustained strokes, use short strokes to slowly work your way over large areas
  • Take extra care around the skin covering your joints (ankles, elbows, wrists etc.)  
  • Regularly clear the razor head of hair by rinsing under running water and wiping dry on a towel
  • Apply more oil as needed
  • Once finished, you can leave any remaining Nära shave oil on your skin as it’s a great moisturiser!
