When it comes to shaving, the usual approach for many is the quicker, the better. But did you know that taking a little bit of extra time out of your day to prepare could make all the difference to the end result?
Having a shower before you start is of paramount importance, as the the steam the hot water generates works to soften the skin and hairs, making them altogether easier to deal with. If you’re really pressed for time, hold a warm flannel or The Bluebeards Revenge Shaving Towel on the target area to achieve the same effect.
Be sure to give your face a thorough wash before going anywhere near that shaving equipment. Choose a product containing salicylic acid to effectively remove dirt, oil and dead skin, leaving a smooth, clean canvas for your razor.
You’re nearly ready to go, but before you do, a generous layer of The Bluebeards Revenge Pre-Shave Oil will really kick things off to a good start. Doing its bit to eliminate nicks and bumps, this luxurious product will moisturise your facial hair prior to applying our Brushless Shaving Solution or Shaving Cream, making irritating, painful shaves a thing of the past.
It’s easy to forget that post-shave after care is just as important if you want to maintain a smooth finish and happy, comfortable skin, so reach for a Post-Shave Balm the moment you are done.
Not only does this secret weapon contain witch-hazel and Aloe Vera to nourish the skin after shaving, but also Decelerine – a clever ingredient designed to reduce beard growth, as well as tackling common shaving problems such as razor burn and rash.
For lasting results, follow up daily with our Cooling Moisturiser to further prevent irritation, as well as reducing the oiliness that can lead to congestion and outbreaks – never something you want to have to contend with while shaving.
Once you’ve tried these tips, we promise you won’t look back. In fact, you might even grow to enjoy your grooming routine.
