Why Do We Have 3 Steps in Shaving?

Step 1: Prep

This step is the most important and overlooked part of the shaving process. A good prep cleanses the skin, like  opens the pores, and softens the skin. To prepare the skin for a smooth shave, always shave after or at the end of a hot shower. This will soften the beard and open the pores. In a pinch, a hot towel and splash of water can be used. Our Pre-Shave is crucial for this step.

 

Step 2: Shave

Two of the leading causes of ingrown hairs and razor burn is poor lubrication and dull blades. Step one provides tips for proper lubrication, but a good blade is also essential to a close, comfortable shave. Our Cryo-Gel is perfect for this step.

 

Step 3: Repair and Protect

After shaving, always close the pores with a rinse of cool water. Gently pat the face dry with a soft cloth and apply a good aftershave. I don't recommend using products that contain alcohol, as they can cause unnecessary drying of the skin. The right aftershave balm will help promote quicker healing and moisturize the skin. Our post-shave is perfect for this.
