The Pre-Shave and After-Shave Steps

When you shave, you have to do more than use a razor. The skin on your face is extremely sensitive and when you use only a razor to shave, the skin on your face will probably suffer from uncomfortable razor burn and abrasions. To avoid the discomfort of these side effects, you can use some key pre- and post-shave products to protect your skin and get a better overall shave. Here are some of the pre-shave and aftershave products that you can use when you shave so that you can get a better all-around shave.

Starting the Process

To begin the shaving process, you need to first prepare your skin. First, you can apply an oil or lotion with your fingers onto the area where you want to shave. You can use an oil or lotion designed to be applied before shaving in order to moisturize your skin and soften the hairs on your skin. Moisturizing and softening the area is important because it allows you to get a closer shave with your razor. When you get a closer shave, you don’t have to shave as often, which means that you are not putting your skin through the irritation of shaving as frequently as you would if you were shaving dry. In this way, these products help your razor be more effective.

Finishing the Process

Along with pre-shave products, you will also want to use aftershave products when you have finished shaving with your razor. An aftershave balm or gel is used to moisturize your skin after shaving. This is important because your skin can get very dried out from shaving. When you don’t moisturize your skin after shaving, then you will find that your skin is very irritated and uncomfortable indeed. Aftershave products soothe your irritated skin, which not only provides you with comfort, but also reduces the appearance of razor burn or abrasions on your skin. Aftershave products do a lot to make shaving a more comfortable process. As you can see, both pre- and post-shave products have their place in increasing the effectiveness and comfort of shaving.
