Shaving. We all do it at some point during the week or multiple times a week. Getting a good shave makes you feel clean and you enjoy the process of shaving all that bristle hair away from your face. How good does it feel when you get a good clean shave? We have lost the art of shaving and in this day and age of quick production – quick consumption some of us use disposable razors that we use once and throw away or we use cheap razors. Some razors do not do the job a giving you a clean shave or shaving that hair away. Below we have the top 5 things you need to shave like a man, your dad or your grandpa.
This Czech & Speake aftershave is perfumed with Neroli, Bitter Orange Blossom and Ylang Ylang and blended with mild antiseptic to help close the pores and prevent blemishes, it’s just the thing for rounding off your grooming ritual.
4] Shaving cup and stand
You should have shaving cup and stand to keep everything together. It looks good and makes your shave easier.
Designed to lift facial hair and create a lush lather, this effective tool is soft on the skin while still packing a big punch. It will revitalise your shaving routine and help cut down on in-grown hairs and other minor irritations.
2] Razor blades
The heavy duty double edged safety razor is the perfect tool to reduce ingrown hair and razor burn, while relishing in a daily ritual.
Prep your beard and wash it with warm-hot water to loosen up the hair pores and that reduces irritation. The best way to soften your beard is to to shave right after a shower. The hot water from the shower should hydrate and soften your beard so shaving becomes easier. Then take a small dollop of shave cream and place it in a small bowl or cup. Take your brush, pre-soak it with water and rub the cream around in the cup until you get a nice thick lather. Apply the lather with your brush all over your beard.
The four keys to a successful shave with a safety razor are: 1) use little pressure, 2) angle the blade as far away from your face as possible, 3) shave with the grain, and 4) go for beard reduction, not beard removal.You don’t need to use pressure because the weight of the safety razor is sufficient to cut your beard. The proper angle of your razor should be between 30 and 45 degrees. To get the proper razor angle, put the top of the razor head directly on your cheek, with the handle parallel with the floor. Going over your face once again can give your a smoother finish.
After your shave rinse your face off with some cold water to close your pores. Aftershave helps reduce any irritation and leaves your skin looking clean and good.
