Shaving against the grain

Dear Daniel, My question is…

At present I use a Gillette Mach 3, a shaving brush and traditional shaving cream.

I usually make two passes and then shave against the growth on the sides of my face to finish. I gather this is not a good idea in your view.

I also get the occasional razor bump, usually on my chin, is the above a cause of this?

Daniel Rouah Answers

Shaving against the grain will create shaving bumps.

Going down twice is enough.
