SOOTHING IRRITATION FOR THE PERFECT POST-SHAVE RITUAL AT HOME
June 25, 2023
For some blokes shaving is much more of a horror show than for others. Rash, irritation and razor burn can torment long after the last pass of the razor blade. If you're a bloke who gets irritated and uncomfortable after shaving, read on because in today's article we offer the best respite possible with our guide on soothing irritation for the perfect post shave ritual at home.
Not All Skin Types Are Equal
Some blokes are prone to shaving sensitivity and men with sensitive skin should take extra measures to ensure a smooth and comfortable shave.
Understanding your skin type is key and adjusting your shaving process to suit is vital.
Prior Preparation Prevents A Poor Performance
Have you ever heard the saying that prevention is the best cure?
Well it's a good one and it rings true here because a little prior preparation can prevent most post shave irritation and discomfort.
Start by washing your face with warm water to open up the pores and soften the stubble. Apply a pre-shave cream, then use a quality shaving brush to apply your shaving soap and lastly shave with a fresh razor blade.
The Right Tools For The Job
We want to emphasise the importance of using high quality shaving products and also the right products for your skin type.
Here at Barber Industries Westfield Tuggerah we stock the world’s best barbershop exclusive brands and have the right products and the right advise for all skin types.
A soothing aftershave balm should be at the core of this ritual and there is none better than Proraso After Shave Balm Sensitive. It is specially formulated for men who are prone to redness, sensitivity and irritation. The natural alcohol-free formula includes oatmeal, green tea, thyme and aloe to soothe, moisturise and protect.
The After Shave Process
After the last pass of the razor, rinse your face with cold water to close the pores. Pat dry and apply after shave balm. Use a small amount to gently massage into the face and neck until all the product is absorbed. This will provide satisfying and immediate relief from the stresses and discomforts of shaving.
We're sure you will feel the difference!
Now that you're comfortable and irritation free, it's time for the grand finale and a splash of cologne on your pulse points to get yourself smelling just as good as you’re feeling.
