Before you do anything else, start by washing your face with warm water. Whether this is in the shower or over a basin, it will soften the hair making it easier to cut, as well as opening your pores, reducing the risk of ingrown hairs. Even better, use an exfoliator to remove every trace of dirt, oil and dead skin cells which would otherwise end up in your razor.
Now you have the perfect canvas, apply a shaving gel or cream to the hair in upwards motions. The Elemis Ice Cool Foaming Shave Gel is a fail-safe option. This will improve the glide of your razor and show exactly which spots you've missed. A good formula will also protect against irritation and result in fewer nicks.
A hard-working post-shave product will ensure your skin looks healthy and leave you smelling fresh. Rinse your face with cold water to close your pores before applying an aftershave balm like the Acqua di Parma Colonia Pura to soothe your skin and eliminate redness or itching. Finally, apply a moisturiser to restore your hydration levels.
