If you’re a man who shaves regularly, chances are you won’t need us to tell you how painful it can be. Shaving rash, ingrown hairs, razor bumps and increased sensitivity are just a few of the traumas shaving can inflict on your skin.
But by integrating a little manly skin care into your shaving routine, you can reduce – and possibly even avoid – all of the above.
Step 1: Exfoliate first
“Using a granular exfoliator such as our Purely Age-Defying Refining Treatment before you shave helps lift any hairs that haven’t quite broken the skin yet,” said Rebecca Nicholls, Global Education Director at Jurlique.
“This promotes a smoother shave, reduces razor burn, and helps prevent ingrown hairs from developing afterwards.”
Step 2: Use plenty of shaving foam
Shaving foam helps reduce the friction your razor places on your skin. And you don’t have to stick to traditional shaving creams.
“You can use something like our Balancing Foaming Cleanser instead,” said Rebecca. “As well as reducing irritation, its gentle yet effective natural ingredients will clean and moisturise your skin while you shave.”
Step 3: Soothe your skin
Now that you’ve finished shaving, it’s important to cool, hydrate and calm your skin.
“Our Calendula Redness Rescue Soothing Moisturising Cream is perfect for this,” said Rebecca. “Its unique Comfort Complex is specifically designed to soothe skin and reduce redness.”
“It’s also rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants to protect and hydrate your skin, and help it recover from shaving.”
