Make sure that the both sides of your face are even while shaving. Use your both index fingers for knowing that which side is longer. Place the left finger at the bottom of left side do the same with right finger to adjust your face accordingly.
Use the index finger of the hand which is not dominant to lift your nose up and nose down for having a large area for shave.
Stretch your lips for shaving the area under your lips. The area of below the jaw and neck is very sensitive are of your skin so take your time while shaving this area and do the shave in this area in a trickiest way, smoothly and gently. Check your face again in mirror for the missing spots.
