How to achieve the perfect Shave
Do you ever wonder what it takes to get that perfect shave? Well here are 4 easy steps that can help you reach your goal towards perfect grooming.
Prepare the skin: It's best to shave after you shower because the skin is naturally cleansed and moisturized. The first thing you want to do is apply a pre-shave oil, this helps to create a barrier between the skin and the blade while keeping the skin moisturized preventing razor burn or any irritation.
Lather up: Next, you want to lather the beard with a premium shaving cream, and or hot lather. To do this you can use a shaving brush or hand, applying in a circular motion causing the pores to expand.This allows for a closer experience once you begin the shaving process.
Shave: Now you are ready to shave, once your skin has been fully lathered and exfoliated. The first pass, its recommended to go with the grain of the beard to prevent any forms of skin irritation. Once completed, follow up by going across or against the grain for the second pass allowing for the closest shave leaving you with silky smooth skin!
- Tip: (Re-lathering before the second pass, followed by stretching the skin during a shave. Helps provide for closeness, while keeping the skin moisturized preventing any dryness or roughness during the shave)
Moisturize: For the final step, rinse off your face with cold water and apply a premium after shave moisturizer. This can be done using an aftershave creme or balm that aides in re-conditioning the skin to keep it soft and healthy. It's best to use your fingertips to apply the aftershave balm using a downward slapping motion that way you don't cause irritation to the skin.
Tip: (It's best to stay away from any alcohol based aftershave balms or lotions. This can actually enhance any irritation to the skin while stripping the moisturizing components )
