Whether you shave once a week or once a month, only to clean up your beard or to make your significant other happy, perk up your routine by investing in a few key products and learn some new tricks for a close shave without the razor burn.

Shaving isn’t just about your hair. Although most believe that irritation occurs from the density of the hair or the pattern it grows in, shaving is more about your skin than your hair. While shaving perfectly against the grain has its benefits, so does prepping your skin. Taking a steamy shower prior to shaving can help prep by softening up the skin and hair. If you don’t always have time for a long, relaxing shower opt for shave oil. Ultra Glide Shave Oil is not only a great treatment for your face, it allows the razor to glide effortlessly over the skin, preventing razor burn and skin irritation.

Moisturize! Irritation and ingrown hairs often occur when dry, dead skin cells clog your follicles. To ensure a seamless shave, be sure to moisturize during (and after) your shave sesh. Try out Moisturizing Shave Cream, a vitamin and nutrient rich formula sure to moisturize even the driest skin. This formula is perfect for dry or sensitive skin and should definitely be used during the drier seasons for extra skin support.

Don’t forget to cool down. Shaving takes a toll on your skin. Due to the process, pores are left open after, which is how problems usually occur. Using an aftershave, like Post-Shave Cooling Lotion helps close pores, moisturize and fight against razor burn and skin irritation. Both a lotion and an aftershave in one, this dual action product cuts down on your routine while improving your skin.
