Grooming doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, with the right men’s shaving products, you’ll be surprised how easy it can be.
1. Whisker Lifter
Whisker lifters may seem old fashioned, but there’s a reason that the pros use them: they’re effective! Whisker lifters do exactly what the name implies they do – namely, they raise beard hairs away from the face making it easier to get a close, irritation-free shave.
And not just any razor. You’re going to want to always shave with a clean, sharp razor. If your razor is dull, it’s probably doing more damage to your skin than good. Dull razors cause irritation, drag, and ultimately, nasty ingrowns and razor burn. Do yourself a big favor and replace your razors or razor cartridges whenever they start to get grimy or worn down.
3. Shave Cream
A quality shave cream is essential to protect your skin from the razor you are about to apply to it. It’s very important to lubricate the beard and facial skin before shaving. Doing so will help the razor glide smoothly across the skin. Good shave creams are also effective at hydrating which is an important part of keeping skin baby soft and preventing premature aging.
4. Soothing After Shave
In order to avoid shaving related grievances such as razor burn, ingrown hairs, redness and inflammation, finish up your routine with a soothing after shave product. A good after shave balm will be effective at reducing irritation and it will also provide an immediate soothing and cooling sensation.
