Shave It Right – Shaving is all about “Three Ts of Shaving”…Time, Tools and Technique.
- First off, you’ve got to shave at the best time. So, when’s that you might ask? The best time to shave is just after you shower and wash your face. You’ve got fresh, clean skin, and your facial hair is soft from the warm water. Alternatively, wrap your face in a warm, moist towel after cleansing.
- Secondly, you need the proper tools to prevent razor bumps. Check out our great “Skin Care Tips 101 Choosing A Razor” and follow up blog 102 – Razor Typed Deconstructed to help you choose the perfect shaving tool. In addition to razors, you need to put some glide between your skin and the blade to get that soft, smooth shave you desire.Use a shave gel, like our Bump Patrol Cool Shave Gel with a brush to keep those facial hairs on end and provide a nice glide and close shave. Alternatively, our Bump Patrol Pre-Shave Oil has 100% natural oils for a soft, smooth, pain-free shave.
- Last but not least, you’ve got to use the proper technique when you shave. Bump Patrol recommends the Directional Shave MethodTM of shaving with the grain, never against the hair’s natural growth pattern. Here’s an image to use as a guide for proper shaving technique.
