THE SHAVING GUIDE

THE SHAVING GUIDE

Whether you’re brand new to shaving or you just can’t seem to get those smooth legs you’ve been looking for - we’re here to give you some shaving advice with our step by step guide and top tips.

DIRECTIONS

Soak skin in the bath or shower for around 3-5 minutes. This will soften the hairs to allow for a closer shave.

Next, exfoliate the skin with Pre-Shave Scrub – massage in circular motions and rinse. This will ensure any dead skin and dirt is removed and will help your razor glide easily over the skin.

Next apply a layer of Shave Cream to the area. This will help to prevent nicks and cuts while shaving by adding an extra protection layer and will also lock in moisture.

Then, take your razor and use long strokes without applying too much pressure to the skin. If shaving legs, shave from the ankles upwards. For underarms, you can shave up, down and sideways to catch every hair. For the bikini area, start off shaving in the direction of hair growth and then shave against for a closer shave.

When you’ve finished shaving, make sure to rinse and dry your razor and store in a dry place in your bathroom.

Finally, pat skin dry and apply our Post-Shave Balm to ensure that skin is left moisturised and cooled.



TOP TIPS

Make sure to change your blades on a regular basis. A dull blade can irritate your skin and cause cuts more easily.

Use long strokes without applying excess pressure. Shave with caution in areas such as knees and ankles.

To prevent skin from drying out, make sure to follow your shave with a moisturiser.

Never dry shave, this can cause severe skin irritation. You should soak skin for at least 3 minutes to soften hairs.

Exfoliatie prior to shaving, as this will ensure an even shaving surface.

Avoid sharing a razor with someone else, as this will increase risk of infection.

SHAVING MYTHS

New blades cause more nicks and cuts than an old blade

A dull blade is much more likely to cause cuts and skin irritation, as they don't easily glide over the skin. Remember to change those blades!

Using soap works just as well as a shave cream

Shave cream applies moisture while shaving and ensures that the blades glide easily over the skin. Soap will only dry out the skin.

Dry shaving is okay

Dry shaving can cause severe skin irritation. You should ensure that skin is soaked in water for approx 3 minutes prior to shaving.

Shaving causes hair to grow back thicker and darker

Shaving only trims the hair, it's a persons genetics that determine the thickness/darkness of growth. It just may appear this way due to the ends being blunt when growing back.

Shaving will make your tan fade faster

Shaving does exfoliate the skin, but this can actually enhance your tan by removing any dead skin cells.
