I have been shaving with the DE for about a week. I have learned the angles as to not cut myself, and my skin feels SOOO smooth!
However, on my upper lip I ALWAYS cut myself
I shave after a shower with a shaving brush and proraso.
But on my upper lip it just seems that my mustache is like spines! Shaving downward with the grain doesn't get rid of anything. And shaving upward just tugs on the hairs and causes cuts! Across doesn't seem any better.
I end up with a great shave everywhere else, even the neck, but I always end up with a bloody upper lip.
I even try to streth my lip with my muscle, it doesn't seem to help, and pulling my upper lip down seems very awkward and dangerous.
