Shaving the face is an essential hygiene procedure for men that many men have to repeat almost daily. Unfortunately, this routine is often associated with a number of irritations in the form of red spots and skin damage. What are the reasons for all the unpleasantness?
The main culprit when it comes to irritation after shaving is hurry. The razor blade combined with unprepared facial skin is truly merciless. Many guys skip the dedicated shaving products and shave “against the grain” using a dull razor that usually sits in a damp spot in the bathroom. Imprecise, quick strokes with the razor quickly return the favor with peculiar red spots on the face. Failure to thoroughly cleanse the skin and moisturize it properly after shaving is the proverbial nail in the coffin.
Before you start removing your beard, warm up your face properly in the shower or with a hot towel. This will widen the pores and soften the hairs a bit, making the shaving process more thorough and less unpleasant friction. We also recommend exfoliating your face at least once a week, as regular exfoliation will remove dead skin and prevent unsightly ingrown hairs.
Using dedicated shaving products is an absolute must – without a protective layer of foam or cream on your face, irritation is bound to occur. Use razor strokes in the direction of hair growth. Shaving will take a little longer, but your skin will thank you with a satisfying appearance. Afterwards, cool off well with cold water and apply a specially formulated after-shave balm.
Beard removal does not have to be an unpleasant chore and with the right accessories, it can quickly turn into a relaxing ritual.
Spritzing the shaving cream with a natural bristle brush ensures the lather is distributed evenly across your face. The durable razor with replaceable blades allows for an accurate and precise shave. The set is completed with an attractive stand with a bowl – not only is it a practical accessory, but it also looks great on the bathroom shelf.
Make a special gift for your man and give him a professional shaving set.
