To ease you into the new year we thought we would continue our useful guide on how to achieve the best shave. We are going to help you by giving you our top three essential tips for improving your shaving experience during your grooming routine.
Better Than Soap and Water
You’re not your Grandad, it’s time to stop using the archaic soap dish and update your cleansing tools. Invest in a Daily Exfoliating Face Scrub, this will provide key exfoliation and cleansing benefits to your face and beard hair. It breaks down the harder keratin layers in the hair’s strand, allowing more moisture to penetrate the hair’s shaft. Subsequently, softening your beard and allowing you to have a smoother, closer shave. Cleansing the skin prior to your shave also removes impurities and dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, reducing the possibility of post-shaving irritation.
Sculpting your scruff
Keeping your neck line clean and your cheek bones free of fluff means constant maintenance and precision shaving. Using a low-foaming, clear shave gel like Super Slide Shave Gel will enable you to see exactly what you’re doing & direct your razor for the ultimate glide. Our tip to keep your scruff in order is to make it look as ‘natural’ as possible. Over sculpting can leave your stubble looking a little over-worked. Best to keep it simple, chaps.
Post-shave skincare is just as important as any other part of your grooming routine. The process of cleansing effectively and shaving can put sensitive skin through a lot. It has been buffed of dead skin cells and had a razor running over it. It’s time to give a little back by using a moisturiser or post-shave balm. Dry, tight and irritated skin will only worsen the more you shave and leave unattended. Our moisturisers not only hydrate your skin but can help reduce the chances of post-shave irritation, using ingredients like aloe vera and cocoa butter to aid in soothing aggravated skin.
