Still learning at 58
I´ve always taken great care when shaving my upper lip to avoid getting cut, but I´ve never been really happy with the closeness of the shave on that part of the face. Today, at the age of 58, I discovered that by tucking my upper lip under my lower lip and pulling down hard, I can get a super-close shave without worrying about nicking those two ridges that extend downward from the nose and form the philtrum (the downward tug flattens the ridges completely!!! ) Until now, I´d always just turned the corners of my mouths slightly downwards when shaving the upper lip, but this new technique is far superior. Not sure whether this is worth a tweet as well as a blog post....perhaps it´s common knowledge?
