[MEN] The secrets of a perfect shave
Prepare the skin
One of the secrets of shaving is that prepare the skin. A hot shower is the perfect way to start! The steam released will allow the pores to open, release the hair and soften.
It is then the perfect time to cleanse your skin with a cleansing gel for example, that will allow to remove all the impurities that could encourage cuts. Once a week, it is advisable to make a scrub to remove dead skin and make the skin soft and clean at the same time .
The final step is to oil pre-shave ! Though often ignored, it will allow better glide while allowing lower nicks, cuts and irritation. It is important to note that oil pre-shaving does not exempt a cream, gel , foam or shaving soap.
Shave starting from the neck up and the centre of the face outwards, to prevent the early appearance of wrinkles. The use of a brush may then be useful. It will allow to continue the action scrub with its slightly exfoliating action. It will also help straighten the hair and thus help to shaving. It is important to spread your shaving foam or soap to help the passage of the razor but it is also essential to remember that too much product prevents the blade being closer to your beard.
Shaving ideally begins with the face to allow time for pre shave oil to act in your neck, which is a more difficult area to treat. The first pass of the razor must always be in the direction of hair growth to avoid ingrown hairs. Promote the long and soft gestures to small razor bumps. Regularly rinse his razor is essential to lengthen its service life and allow a better shave.
If you want a close shave, reapply the shaving product and spend this time in the opposite direction of hair growth. Just one pass. It is important that the gesture is light to avoid weakening the skin.
Finish your shave by rinsing your skin with cold water, allowing your pores to close while removing product residues. In case of failure, the use of alum stone moistened is recommended to allow the bleeding stops while softening the area. Remember to pat dry the skin. Be careful not to rub to avoid irritating the skin.
It is important to apply a product after shaving. Moisturizing balm is recommended for men with dry skin while lotion without alcohol is preferred for oily skin.
