Shaving Tips For Men: Get The Best Shave Possible!
1. Take Your Time: Don’t rush through a shave. Spend time prepping your skin for the razor. Start by cleansing your face. Facial cleansers work best because they help soften the protein in the hair.
2. Lather Up: Use a quality shaving cream or gel and allow it to sit on the skin for 2-3 minutes. The longer you let it sit, the better.
OUR TOP PICK: Recipe For Men Clear Shave Gel – A clear-blue, non foaming, maximum-comfort shaving gel that softens and lifts facial hair for effortless shaving. It comes with a little extra bite, which proves that it really works. Lemon extract refreshes, classic Aloe Vera moisturizes and anti-inflammatory allantoin minimizes razor burn.
3. Brush Up: Don’t rely on your fingers to lather up. A good brush really helps to push your shaving cream into the hair. We recommend using a badger hair brush for its ability to lift the hairs and efficiently coat them with cream.
OUR TOP PICK: Penhaligon’s Nickel Travel Shaving Brush – This travel shaving brush is made from ethically sourced badger hair. Perfect for applying Penhaligon’s traditional shaving soaps and creams. The brush head can be retracted into the handle to avoid damage on your travels.
3. A Sharp Blade Is A Must: Discard if you see a nick in the blade, otherwise, if you shave often, change your blade every week.
