Up for upper lip, down for everywhere else most of the time.
My necks the worst part, i often get a rash there from shaving.
I used to shave upwards and it's definitely smoother but it made me break out.

Speaking of shaving. The other day I used one of those quintippio multi-blade razers with a zillion blade so you only have to shave the area once (lies). I shave my head too, so I figured it'd be just the ticket. My brain hurt for two day! I had to wait a week before I could touch my head again. After that, I went out and bought a cheap CVS brand razer with 2 blades, and they worked perfectly. Just goes to prove that more is not always better, and neither is more expensive
Oh, and according to Kareem, "alway front to back"...for the head, that is. Personally, I go with the grain
down on the face, up on the neck jaw line and chin. no real rhyme or reason, i just think its easier/less awkward, and ive found gets the least amount of water n **** everywhere (im usually in a hurry). i have pretty sensitive skin too, but then again im part jap so my hair isnt too thick to begin with.
I'll start shaving downward and then move to a sideways/upward direction afterwards to make my face as smooth as possible. I only shave downward on my upper lip otherwise it'll cut up like crazy. To those who are prone to cuts and rashes, you should put some warm water or lotion on your face before shaving as it'll help prep your skin and may help out a lot.
