Shaving Tips - Shave in the direction of hairs growth

Make sure you have a clean sharp blade and shave using short strokes. It is important to shave in the direction of your hairs' growth, which means down on the cheeks and chin and upwards on the neck. If you are not sure, run your finger across your stubble to see which direction the hair is growing. Shaving against the direction of hair growth is the primary cause of razor burn, redness and rashes.

Using an all natural shaving oil can also help reduct redness and razor burn by helping with the proper lubrication for a smooth shave.

Shaving Tips - After you Shave

After you shave, make sure to apply an oil-free moisturizer to soothe and protect your face. If you prefer an after-shave, make sure to check the label for alcohol. Having dryness and stinging sensations are by-products of most after-shave products whose primary ingredient is alcohol. It may feel good at the time, but alcohol based after-shaves will actually irritate your complexion.

Using Shaving Oil for the First Time?

Shaving with oil for the first time?

Use a new razor. Wash your legs and underarms or face to remove oil and perspiration. Use 4 to 5 drops of shaving oil before shaving to help keep water in the hair and to ensure the razor glides easily over skin. For maximum comfort, use a light touch and shave in the direction of hair growth to shorten hairs and then against the grain to get the closest results.
