Taking care of one's own appearance in present times is no longer just a domain of women. Men are more and more eager to take care of themselves, because they see the results. One of the basic aspects of caring for your own appearance is skin care while shaving. It is extremely important to do this in the right way to avoid not only jamming but also later irritation. In this article we reveal some tricks on how to shave to make it easy and enjoyable. We invite you to read it.
Take care of your skin first
First, make sure your skin and hair are properly prepared for shaving. You must remember that caring for your face and hair means taking care of it every day. First of all, make sure you have the right cream to match your skin type. If your skin becomes oily, choose a mattifying cream, if it tends to redden and burst blood vessels, opt for a capillary skin cream. If your face is prone to dryness, reach for an intensely moisturising cream. What's more, the right cream will also take care of your beard and, above all, the skin underneath, which normally has to peel off.
It is also worth taking care of a healthy balanced diet and supplementation with biotin or vitamin A plus E complex. They will be grateful not only for the hair on your head, but also for your beard. Properly maintained skin, however, you need to additionally prepare for shaving. First of all, you should do something to soften your hair. In what way? You can either use a ready-made product such as mousse or shaving gel, the composition of which is designed to make it easier for you to do so by softening your hair. However, if you don't have any foam or gel on hand, you can take a hot shower or wet a towel in hot water and put it on your face for a few minutes. What's next?
How do I properly shave my face?
To avoid bloodshed this time, make sure the razor you're going to shave is sharp enough. Nothing makes shaving more difficult than a stuffed, rusty, blunt shaver. The second important thing is to shave in the right direction. How's that? First of all, never against the grain, because this way you can not only easily cut yourself, but what's more, you can also get unnecessary skin irritations. Unfortunately, each one of us has a slightly different beard, so before you start shaving, take a close look at your face and notice which way your hair is lying down and start shaving in that direction.
Don't skip the care just after
Yeah, that's right. There's no doubt that, no matter how hard you try, your after-shave skin is always a little irritated. What you can and should do for her is take care of her right after you've finished shaving. Get the most out of your finished product, such as a lotion or after-shave cream, which you can find in any drugstore or online store.
