How to shave perfectly?

You too will have noticed it: lately beards have "sprouted" on the faces of very young people, both young and old. A fashion that everyone seems to like!

Of course, growing a beard is sometimes a real pain!

Weeks of patience, loving care and... itching, so much itching, so much that many men decide to give up on their attempt. There are therefore those who shave every day, or almost every day, those who prefer to have a bit of well-groomed beard and shave only occasionally and only in certain parts of the face, and finally those who opt for a full beard.

Here is some useful advice on how to get the best result from shaving, obviously always choosing the right products!

When to shave?

The best time to shave is in the morning, when the skin is more relaxed and better prepared to be treated.

Try to use the steam from a hot shower or from a cloth moistened with warm water: the heat will help open the pores and prepare the skin for shaving.

Before shaving: cleanse!

It is important to clean your face thoroughly the evening before, to best prepare your facial skin for shaving, using effective products to cleanse your face and eliminate sebum, toxins and impurities.
Repeat the operation in the morning, remembering to rinse with warm water which helps to dilate the pores.

Before shaving, apply a pre-shave oil to create a barrier effect and reduce the risk of irritation.

The shaving ritual

Lather your face with shaving foam or cream, leaving it on for a few moments to soften the hair.

Shave starting from the sideburns and following the direction of the hair, so as not to generate folliculitis and therefore avoid the regrowth of the hair under the skin.

Make a possible second pass in the opposite direction (against the grain).

Rinse with cold water to help close pores, relieving any irritation and decreasing the risk of infection.

After shaving: moisturize!

After shaving, the skin is stressed by the encounter with the razor and in need of refreshment.

Dry it, remembering to pat dry and not rub your face to avoid unnecessary redness.

Finally, apply liquid aftershave, cream or spray to give freshness, hydration and firmness to the skin, helping to reduce redness.
