Men’s Shaving advice

Here are a few thoughts about a man’s shaving routine

A man spends about 22, 000 hours in his life time shaving & shaves about 8.5 meters of beard in his lifetime.

The fact is that Mom’s spend time with their daughters teaching them about taking care of their skin & applying make-up. I guess Dad’s don’t give lots of advice on shaving as they weren’t given much advice from their Dad’s. My suggestion is that Mom’s take over if Dad doesn’t want to as your son’s need your attention & advice on shaving before they get into any bad shaving habits.

Here is some advice about shaving.

  • It’s better to shave after showering as the beard will be softened by the hot water & steam
  • Shave with the grain of the beard as this will prevent ingrown hair, don’t shave against the grain of the beard to avoid inflammation
  • Wash your face before shaving to remove any oil on the beard hair
  • Use a quality shaving product & quality razor
  • Fill your cheeks with air to expand the skin when shaving your most sensitive part of your face the lips
  • Use short stokes when shaving rather than long strokes
  • Rinse your face with cold water immediately after shaving to get rid of any shaving product & to tighten the pores
  • Use an aftershave or aftershave balm on your face & not an Eau de Toilette or Eau de Partum both fragrances which is meant to be strayed on the pulse points of your body.

After shave & aftershave balm is great for your face after shaving. After shave has less perfume oils & contains soothing & cooling ingredients. It acts as an astringent & antiseptic to help tighten the pores & helps to kill bacteria. Aftershave has less fragrance than a EDT or EDP.

The bad news is that not many brands have aftershave available in SA, here are a few that are available in SA, I recommend these three. Tabac has a fairly new fragrance Gentle Men’s Care a fresh scent & different to what your Granddad & Dad wore. Boss Bottled After Shave Lotion is an oriental/fougere scent & Issey Miyake L’eau D’Issey After Shave Lotion is a fresh/spicy scent. Remember that after shaves tones, soothes & softens the skin with less scent which will last between 2 to 3 hours.
