Shave upward when your facial hair is growing downward in short, deliberate strokes. Shaving '''against''' the grain with a used razor increases your chances of irritation, causing black heads. Long strokes often cause one to press down too hard on the skin, increasing razor burn.
Rinse your blade out with water after each stroke. Rinse your blade under hot water before you begin to shave again. This removes the shaving cream, and facial hair.
For a close shave, use your other hand to pull skintight. Rub around extra shaving cream around the same area then shave that area again.
