There are a few factors that can lead to a rough, tug-and-pull shave that can make even the most meticulous of guys avoid the chore. Whether it is discomfort or visible razor burn, tug-and-pull shaving is never fun. Minimizing tug-and-pull can be as easy as taking the right steps such as showering first or choosing proper high-performance shaving products. Both are essential step in making sure you deliver the proper pre-shave preparation and post-shave antiseptics to keep your blade smooth on the skin and razor burn at bay.
1. Shave After You Shower
You are going to be removing the top layer of skin, so doesn't it make sense for your face to be clean? Showering first will guarantee that most of the gunk and grime from the day is removed from the pores which would lead to future infection. It will also help open the pores to loosen ingrown hairs helping to lessen tug-and-pull.
2. Choose ONLY High-Performance Shave Products
Guys just don't seem to get it. You can't put toxin filled formulas on your skin and expect their chemical ingredients to keep your skin healthy. Daily use of these products fills your skin with toxins that can lead to all sorts of problems down the line including premature aging, skin cancer, prostate cancer, breakouts, hair loss, skin drying, etc. High-Performance skincare is the perfect blend of ingredients that are good for your skin with natural actives the protect you. You want to find products that will hydrate the skin, which will help reverse and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. You also want to look for ingredients that will clean out toxins and regulate the skins oil production. This will help keep the skin's complexion clear and breakout free. When the skin's oil is naturally regulated, its restoration will help lock in moisture and prevent drying. Steer clear of products with lots of alcohol. Classical aftershaves are a major violator of this code and using these alcohol based aftershaves just dry your skin straight out. You just cannot do this to yourself. Take care of your skin with High-Performance Skincare and it will take care of you.
3. Start Your Shave with a Pre-Shave & Finish With A Hydrating Aftershave
Razor burn is caused by an infection to the hair follicles. A pre-shave will clean the face and clear the way for the razor blade for a smooth shave with less tug-and-pull by standing and softening the hairs for a smooth shave. It will also clear away dead skin which can clog the razor and lead to nicks and cuts which are exposed to infection. Failure to properly use a pre-shave can also result in ingrown hairs which leads to infection. It will help free existing ingrown hairs to help prevent and heal existing infection.
