Exfoliate the skin

Exfoliate the skin. This is something that can be done in the shower or when first waking up. It will remove the dead skin cells and will help maintain healthy skin. If a shave is needed, avoid that area of the skin and shave after the shower. Try to get as close of a shave as possible.
