Getting the perfect shave means using the right tools for the job - but that's not all. Preparing your skin for your shaver (a regular or electric shaver, it’s up to you) will make a huge difference in the results you get from your shave! Once you’ve chosen your favourite shaver, shop the best in skin care & aftercare. Here are our best tips for getting the perfect shave.
Skin Prep: Regular Shaver Edition
Create the perfect shaving routine from start to finish with luxury skincare products to nourish and protect your skin. First, cleanse skin with warm water to soften the hairs, then apply your favourite shaving foam.
Here’s the thing - you want a quality, luxurious shaving foam that creates a thick lather, creating a barrier of protection between the razor and your skin. The best shaving foams also have ingredients to nourish your skin at the same time.
Once a week be sure to exfoliate - this makes shaving easier and prevents any pesky ingrown.
Skin Prep: The Electric Razor Method
Shaving is more than just about using an electric razor to buzz your hair off - a luxury grooming routine has steps from start to finish to get your best shave yet.
Unlike a regular razor, you won’t be shaving a face dampened with shaving foam - this is a dry shave. However, it’s still a good idea to cleanse the skin and soften hairs beforehand with warm water to ensure you get the best shave from your electric shaver.
Follow up with a skin-nourishing aftershave to lock in moisture and prevent ingrown; because shaving partially exfoliates the skin, moisture needs to be restored to equilibrium. Aftershaves are also formulated with ingredients to prevent painful ingrown hairs.Looking for the perfect aftercare to go with your shaver? Shop Beauty Affairs for the best in men’s skincare.
