Consider this article as a shaving-best-practices template for your first electric shaver.

Firstly, clean your face and dry it. Electric shavers do a better job when your face is clean. Turn the electric razor on and begin shaving against the direction of hair growth, moving the shaving head linearly and in circles. Circular motion Stretch the skin with your other hand to make the hair stand up straighter so the razor blades shave closer.

After shaving, turn it off and rinse the cutting heads under warm water. You can also use jet clean system once a week to clean your shaver. Make sure that you charge it for the time specified in user manual. Overcharging may cause damage to the battery.

What is the best beard trimmer for styling and sensitive skin?

Yes, you are right! Now a days most of the people are using electric shaver because of its advantages like:
  1. It gives a fast shave.
  2. It is cheaper than manual shaving kits
  3. It gives a smooth shave and also there is no chance to get cut or skin irritation
If you are looking for beard trimmer than i will let know that trimmers are used to cleaning up the edges. I would recommend you to use clippers rather than using trimmers because clippers are used for doing the bulk of a haircut.
