I believe most of you think process of shaving is so simple, you hardly put any work or thought into it. Of course, all you need to do is put some/any shaving cream on your skin or just turn on your electric shaver and start shaving. Hang On!
Are you sure you got the right shaving products for your unique skin? People complain about getting cuts all the time and acne problems blaming their razors. Some of us don’t realize that right skin care regimen and products will make a huge positive change on our skin. Some men in particular just do not let go of the cheap shaving foam or even worse – soap and water. Along with applying good techniques, you should find out what skin type you have and use the right products for your skin. Choose your shaving products wisely. For instance, alcohol in a product is not good on sensitive skin. It dries it and causes irritation. Same for menthol. Yes, they feel good at first, but the result may not be as pleasant later. Avoid foam based products. Aerosol gels or foams are most popular products. It’s because they are easy to use and find. They give you a handful of lather at the press of a button. However, it’s quality not the quantity of the lather that is important.
Chemicals that are bad for your skin foam those products up. Quality shaving creams do not just help you remove hair. They prevent skin irritation, acne, and razor bumps. And they are not that expensive. Only for couple more bucks, you can get a good shaving cream that does all that and more. During these last years, skin care and shaving products have greatly developed.
There are many products on the market for any skin type, so you just need to spend a little bit of time to analyze and choose the right one for you.
