Tips on Daily Shaving


Shaving is a task for majority of the men and becomes more tasking when accompanied with cuts or razor bumps due to ingrown hairs.
If shaving is irritating your skin your razor might be the culprit. Both electric and manual razor have their pros and cons and one must evaluate their benefits before using them.
Manual razors give a closer shave as the blades reach nearer to the skin which can also lead to skin irritation.
Electric razor can be used if you have frequent razor bumps as it does not give a close shave but can equally be irritating to the skin as it “pulls” the hair. Use what works for you.
Various shaving products are available in the market to follow your shaving regime of cleanse, pre-shave, shaving, toning and moisturizing.
To get an irritation-free skin after shaving, use a face wash first followed by pre-shave oil which protects your facial skin by softening your beard and enabling a close shave.
After shaving your beard, an after care routine of toning up with an after-shave and light moisturizing is essential. Alcohol-based aftershaves should be avoided. Apply an aloe vera based lotion or a soothing aftershave with vitamin E to calm irritated skin.
Shaving creams with glycolic acid works as an exfoliating agent which helps in sloughing off dead skin cells and enabling smoother shave.
Shaving in the direction of hair growth is recommended as compared to against the grain as it can lead to skin irritation.
An alcohol-free toner or astringent should be used especially for oily skin as it contracts skin pores and firms up the skin helping in rejuvenation of skin without affecting the ph balance.
