@esheshu answered part of my reply with the tweezers. but if you do use tweezers be sure they have a Very fine point, snd aren't sprung at all, so they come together exactly the same. otherwise, they're almost of no use.make sure you use a shaving lotion that softens the hair first. you can improve the effectiveness by applying the foam and letting it sit for 2/3 mins. before you shave. I know, right? another thing that takes more time getting ready!
You have to coax the hair through the skin, usually by gently squeezing the area with your fingers or a tweezer, similarly how you would pop a zit. I have heard there are some creams that help as well, but I've never tried them.
