Exfoliation, when and how
Scrub your skin away
Bumps, Cuts, and Glides, Oh My!
It is the coming of age ritual that almost every man will go through; their first shave. Most men take blade to face for the first time using some sort of patchwork knowledge they pieced together through various people in their lives and surrounding media. But did anyone take the time to consult them and their particular needs? …Most likely not. Where can one turn to ask the hard pressing questions to make shaving an enjoyable experience
With just a few steps into The Art of Shaving, I knew I’d found something special. A whole store dedicated to men’s grooming with expert consultants at the ready to guide you on your journey. They presented me with a mixture of products and techniques to help me achieve The Perfect Shave. Their 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave: Prepare, Lather Up!, Shave and Moisturize are expertly crafted to work together to produce smooth results while helping with common shaving concerns.
Suffer from razor burn? Pre-Shave Oil helps protect against irritation and razor burn by promoting razor glide. It’s easy to apply and feels fantastic. Don’t worry if you think oils aren’t for your skin type, it is a non-comedogenic formula (it won’t clog your pores) and well worth using for its benefits. You can always wash your face after your shave for good measure. Preparing with a warm shower is also a great way to begin to soften beard hair before you place on a Pre-Shave.
What about nicks and cuts? These are often caused by dull razors and not enough cushion between skin and blade. A quality weighted and balanced razor acts as a natural extension of your hand. No need to push the blade too hard. Lathering up with a moisturizing shaving cream is a dream. When using a shaving brush, I get a thick, frothy lather that helps provide glide. Of course, I change out my blade as soon as they start to feel dull and uncomfortable. Clean and sharp are the names of the game.
Are in-grown hairs the bane of your existence? A good regimen with exfoliation and preparation are key. The Power Brush and Pre-Shave Gel were specially formulated to work as a part of The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave. They can help increase the release of in-grown hairs over the course of 12 weeks. They also pair well with a Fusion cartridge razor so no need to “re-learn” how to shave.
Whatever your shaving concerns may be, The Art of Shaving has you covered. If you can’t get to a store, their online consulting tool will get you set up with everything you need to start your new shaving journey to a smoother you.
