Just relax and go slowly your first time, breath deeply, and start somewhere you can see easily. If you're nervous and shaking you're just going to cut yourself. Rinse the razor out every couple strokes, or it won't cut as well and you might get some irritation; it also helps keep it sharp. Don't press too hard, but don't be afraid to use a little pressure, it will feel a little weird, but you'll get used to it. Rinse your face off with cold water after you're done and dab your face dry. Make sure you rinse the razor out well. If you go with electric just follow the manufacturer's instructions. It won't shave nearly as closely as a five blade, though. Good luck!
I agree with this!
How often you have to shave depends on how fast your hair grows back, which by the way doesn't get increaced because you shave it. Also, if you're using a razor (and not a battery-powered thing), shave down, not up. You could increace your chances of getting ingrown hairs or razor burn. Shave how the hair grows - down =]
