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.
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.
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.
