1. DO IT IN THE MORNING AFTER SHOWERING.
A perfect shave happens early in the morning when the face’s skin is relaxed. Taking care of your skin is essential. If the face is not clean before shaving, the razor will move roughly against the skin, causing irritation, cuts and scratches.
If there is no time to shower, use a towel soaked with warm water and press against the face for at least two minutes.
2. BEFORE SHAVING: ALWAYS USE PRE-SHAVE CREAM.
Pre shave cream softens and straightens the hair, helping the action of the shaving soap. This is a great way to reduce friction on the skin.
Make sure that the pre shave cream contains Aloe Vera.
Aloe Vera reduces itching and burning. It has anti inflammatory properties that make shaving more comfortable.
3. THE SHAVE: FOR THE PERFECT ONE, USE A BRUCH AND SHAVING SOAP.
To shave with soap and brush, wet the brush in hot water and brush it against the soft soap to fluff the brush hair and lather. Move the brush in circular motions, in complete circles using the tip of the brush’s hair to avoid weakening its core. It is important to not let the brush dry while shaving.
Shaving brushes are made with badger hair. Its quality depends on its softness and from which part of the body it comes from. The black hair comes from the paws and it is the lowest in quality. The grey one comes from the sides and it is the most commonly used because it grows in great quantity. The white hair comes from the back and it is the most prestigious.
4. SHAVING ONCE IS NOT ENOUGH.
Good shaving technique helps achieve the best result. The hand needs to be delicate but firm. While stretching the skin, follow the lines of the face.
For a perfectly smooth shave remember to lather the face a second time and repeat the shave.
5. THE AFTER SHAVE.
Even a perfect shave stresses the face’s skin. Rinse your face with cold water to allow the pores to close easily. Massage with gel or aftershave cream or liquid according to your preference.
6. IT IS MORE THAN JUST BEARD.
After shaving hydrate the skin by applying a hydrating and soothing cream with vitamin c or retinol
