Shaving is a shitty task and it can be an unpleasant and uncomfortable experience. Razor burn, rash and irritation can make the process a real horror show. Fear not though men, because in today's article and with a little help from Proraso, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to shaving and show you how to achieve the perfect shave with minimal irritation.

What is Proraso?

First up let’s introduce our friend from Italy!

Proraso is undoubtably one of the world’s leading shaving brands for men and their specialty products are used in barbershops all over the globe. Founded in Italy in 1908, the Proraso brand is known for producing the finest quality products and we are a proud stockist here at Barber Industries Richmond Marketplace.

The Pre-Shave Process

Much of the essential parts of shaving actually take place before the razor even touches your skin.

This pre-shave process plays a crucial role in ensuring that you have a comfortable and irritation-free shave. Start by warming your face with warm water or a hot towel. This softens up your hair,  opens your pores and relaxes the skin, making it easier to shave.

Apply Proraso’s famous pre-shave cream, which acts as a lubricant, preventing friction and irritation. Next, use a quality shaving brush to create a rich lather and apply your shaving soap. This will help the razor glide seamlessly on your skin.

The All-Important Razor

The type of razor you use greatly affects your shaving experience. There are many razors and blade combinations on the market, but for the closest shave with the least amount of irritation, try using a single blade razor with a fresh blade for every shave. Of all the choices, a single blade razor has the least contact area on the skin, which minimises friction and reduces the risk of razor burn.

After Shave Care

After the last pass of the razor, rinse your face with cold water to close the pores. Next, pat your face dry with a clean towel and apply a Proraso After Shave Balm. Apply by massaging a small amount of balm gently into the skin at your face and neck.

Continue rubbing to encourage up take of the product and proceed until all the product is absorbed.

The after shave balm will moisturise and soothe the skin, reducing any irritation or inflammation caused by the rigours of the shaving process.
