Our Men’s Shaving Advice
Getting a close smooth shave on regular basis can really change the way a man’s skin looks every day. If it’s not close – he’s gonna have stubble. If it’s not smooth he’s gonna have razor burn and could even cut himself. Many times, a man’s neck takes a beating during the shaving process.
It’s so important that men start off with clean skin. I learned that from the sales associate at the Clinique counter at The Bon Ton in the Susquehanna Valley Mall in Selinsgrove, PA when I was 17. Granted she was trying to sell me the famous Clinique soap as an add on to my Dramatically Different Lotion! Hey don’t judge! In all seriousness, clean skin that has a clean and clear surface makes a better overall shaving experience.
It’s great idea to keep your skin care products updated by season, you can learn more in our Seasonal Skin Care Guides.
Men’s Shaving Requires Good Skin Care
The men’s shaving experience can be almost ritualistic. It all starts with warm water! Warm water softens the hair, opens the pore, softens any surface oils and allows the skin to relax. Men should use a good cleanser to remove excess dirt and debris from the skin’s surface. Next, a mild, physical exfoliating scrub can pull away dead skin cells to leave the skin’s surface perfectly smooth. A rich shaving cream should be used to create a smooth glide for the razor. After shaving, guys should apply a moisturizer that is hydrating and calming. Finally, apply a broad spectrum SPF to protect the skin.
