Gentlemen, we’ve all been through a bad shave and razor burn before. What is supposed to be a simple routine in the morning turns into a nightmare. Wake up, shower, shave, feel the burn and cuts on your face for the rest of the day. Ouch. Avoid the burn with these tips!
Chrome Safety Razor 5 Ways Men Can Save Cash on Shaving
Cheap, disposable razors from your local drug store are terrible. These guys are the number one cause of razor burn during the shave process. Blades on these razors are not sharp.
Stop buying cheap shaving creams – especially the foam ones. Spend a little extra on gel-based shaving creams that spread much more easily on your face. Many of these creams have skin-calming and moisturising extracts such as aloe vera, licorice root, caffeine, glycerin, coconut oil and shea butter.
If you aren’t already using a moisturiser day and night, why not? Moisturisers are proven to stop irritation and make skin smoother. A good shave takes away essential oils in your skin, causing it to dry.
BONUS TIP: While shaving, don’t shave against the grain. Meaning, don’t shave the opposite way of how your hair grows. Shave along with the direction of your hair growth. This prevents ingrown hairs, cuts – and yes, razor burn.
Soap is meant for washing hands, not the face. Face washes are specially formulated to clean your face and get into your skin’s pores to provide a deep clean. After a shave, this is the first step against razor burn. Our face wash is free of parabens, is non-oily and leaves your face refreshed.
