Getting a Great Shave

Men know that shaving is all about removing hair growth or a way to keep the beard and/or moustache in shape.  If you are looking for ways to get a great shave, just use Pre-shave oil.  When you use the oil and focus on proper shaving you will see some of the following benefits:

  • Skin health
  • Reduce wrinkles
  •  Better job prospects and attractiveness.

In order to get a great shave you need to focus on finding the right razor. Razors keep skin healthy.  Look for a razor that will glide smoothly across the skin and will not knick the skin, causing small cuts. You also need to focus on a razor that doesn’t irritate the skin and causes razor burn. Safety razors are a great choice if you want to get a close shave without cutting the skin. Take your time as you shave so you do not rush the job and cut yourself.

To make your skin soft and to prevent razor burn you need to exfoliate the skin. Exfoliation is removing the top, yet dead layer of skin.  The combination of exfoliation and razors cleans pores, reduce microscopic pimples that keep acne at bay and produces collagen skin production.  Collagen production keeps skin youthful by making skin elastic, plump and vibrant.

Healthy skin leads to another positive point–wrinkle reduction.  Having a beard speeds up wrinkles because the skin is hidden under the hair.  A good shave gives you access to the skin so you can apply moisturizer. The downside is that the sun will shine down on the skin.  The sun causes wrinkles.  The best thing to do is add sunscreen on the face to avoid it.

The general idea of shaving the body is shaving during or after a shower.  The skin and hair is at its softest and you can get the best shave out of it.  Shear long hair with scissors or an electric trimmer.  Apply cream or shaving gel in the area and grab a razor. Clean the razor often so you do not clog it with hair that can scrape against the skin and can cause razor burn. It also makes it hard to get a closer shave.

Prevent ingrown hairs with the right type of moisturizer after you shave.  Ingrown hairs are solid, round bumps on the shaven area that appears after shaving, tweezing, waxing or electrolysis.  The bumps swell and itch as a result of hair growing from the inside of your body.  The hair is growing prematurely, causing the pain.  Darker skin, blisters, pus and lesions are common.  It can be reversed but it will take much more effort to do.  Moisturize after shaving and you won’t have to deal with itchiness and ingrown hairs.
