The Importance of Pre-Shave Preparation: Steps for a Better Shave

Posted by Veronica Fairley-Battle on

Are you tired of dealing with razor burn, irritation, ingrown hairs, and nicks every time you shave? Add in these game-changing shave prep steps that will revolutionize your grooming routine, provide you relief, and give you the smooth, flawless shave you've been wanting.

Prep is key when it comes to achieving a close, comfortable shave. Here are a few essential pre-shave steps to ensure that your skin is properly prepped and primed for a shave.

Clean: The first step to a successful shave is ensuring that your hands, tools, and skin are clean. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water to remove any dirt, oil, or bacteria that could transfer to your face during shaving. Similarly, clean your shaving tools, such as razors or electric shavers, to prevent any buildup or residue from affecting the quality of your shave. Be gentle with your skin and apply pressure to your tools, using rubbing alcohol or a sterilizing agent to thoroughly clean them. Finally, cleanse your skin with a gentle facial cleanser to remove impurities and debris.

Open Your Pores: Opening your pores is crucial for softening the hair follicles and making it easier to achieve a close shave. One effective way to do this is by taking a hot shower before shaving, as the steam helps to naturally open up the pores and soften the hair. Alternatively, you can use a hot towel and our Pre-Shave Exfoliation Cone Bristle Brush to gently massage the skin and encourage pore dilation. This step not only facilitates a smoother shave but also reduces the risk of irritation and stubborn ingrown hairs.

Pre-Shave Products: The ingredient selection in your pre-shave products can further enhance the quality of your shave. 

  • STEARIC ACID - non comedogenic softening, opening pores without clogging pores that contributes to potential acne or ingrown hairs
  • JOJOBA OIL - condition and soften, to allow your blade to easily chop the hair blade 
  • ALOE - moisture/product penetration
