Shaving Tips

Did you know…

  • A dry human hair takes about as much force to cut as a copper wire of identical diameter.
  • After three minutes in the shower, the tensile strength of your beard is reduced by nearly seventy percent!

Why shave in the shower?

Shaving in the shower is the most comfortable place for a man to shave. The moisture and steam greatly soften your beard and make it much easier to cut, resulting in a closer more comfortable shave. When you get out of the shower and towel dry, your face quickly loses the benefit of all the moisture from the hot steamy shower. Once your whiskers have started drying, you can be literally tugging on each and every hair on your face instead of neatly slicing it at the skin’s surface and moving on without irritating your skin.

Women shave in the shower, put on moisturizer and exfoliate their skin.  Ever notice how women look better/younger than men as they get older?  Not calling you a girl here, but if want to look better/younger when you get older you may want to follow suit.

Exfoliate 2-3 times a week. Once you try it and see the results, you will wish you did it sooner.

Use a mild face soap.  A dermatologist recommended this to me.  My whole family uses it. Search for Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar.

Use a moisturizer after you shave.
  Again, you will see and feel the difference immediately.  I like this one because it is not greasy and has no perfume.  My dermatologist recommended this to me as well. Search for Complex15 Therapeutic Moisturizing Lotion.
