We do it almost every day, and yet there’s endless debate about how to get the perfect, smooth, comfortable shave. Today, we introduce you to the things your father didn’t teach you about shaving.
Shaving is a chore for most men, like getting up in the morning and shining your shoes or getting to work. But that’s because they haven’t been introduced to the better option - we recommend shaving in the evening as that’s when you can do it at a relaxed pace.
Always hydrate first, preferably shower or rinse with warm water, as it opens up the pores and softens your hair, allowing the razor to glide more easily.
First and most important – check the alcohol and moisturizing level in each. Creams are a viable and instant lather option for most men but the rich lather for a smooth and comfortable experience is possible only with gel. Gel is a great choice for sensitive skin whereas cream works for most of us. Yardley’s Elegance or Gold shaving cream will offer you airy lather along with the gentle care and moisture of aloe vera.
We know you want the perfect and smoothest experience every time you shave; and that’s why you should change your razor blades just under 2 weeks, even if you don’t shave every week. A dull razor blade is one of the contributing factors to a razor burn or a shaving rash.
The sharper the blades, the more comfortable the shave. A multi-blade razor actually makes it easier to get the corners for a closer, convenient shave.
After shaving, when the skin is most vulnerable, rinse the face with warm water. Shaving can remove up to two layers of skin, which is why it is so important to use a good quality moisturizer after shaving to pacify the skin. The best after shave lotions not only replace lost moisture and soothe, but also have ingredients that will appease and rejuvenate the skin; like Yardley’s Gold and Elegance After Shave Lotion with aloe vera extracts for a natural cooling effect.
