Irritant-Free Shaving Tips

Many men are too proud to admit when their shaving cream irritates their face. While we are instilled that shaving with cream is an absolute must to avoid cuts there are other alternatives that are both healthier for the skin and more comfortable. Just released from Carley’s, is a new concept to shaving: Shaving Butter!

Using a shaving butter with silicone-free ingredients that naturally lubricate (including exotic ingredients from such places India’s Butter Tree), the skin can get a closer shave that doesn’t irritate later.

  1. Do a Clear & Smooth treatment to the skin with special attention to the beard and mustache area. A hot shower with exfoliation will open the pores nicely.
  2. Apply a thin layer of the shaving butter to the areas to be shaved. a Finger full of the shaving cream should be enough.
  3. Lather with the Natural Soap and apply to the areas to be shaved.
  4. Shave with fresh razor, re-applying more butter as needed.
  5. Rinse with warm water, extracting excess water with fingers. Don’t towel dry, leave face wet!
  6. Apply moisturizer to wet face, rub into skin until fully absorbed (Kukui Nut and Regeneration are my favorites for this step).

Another alternative to shaving with the Shaving Butter is the Daytime Moisturizer
This method never fails to give me my closest, smoothest shave ever. The extra lubrication of the moisturizer makes the blade glide smoothly, and greatly reduces the irritation that normally accompanies shaving.
*For the ultimate in smoothness, I’ll use the mask in between steps 5 and 6, give your face one more light wash with the Natural Soap to remove the mask and then moisturize. The Elder Flower Mask feels amazing post-shave, like it’s healing the micro-trauma from the razor.
Women
While we are plainly directing the use of facial shaving, women shouldn’t hesitate to the use the very same treatments. The special nature of the ingredients that go onto your skin create a smoothness in your shaving that you won’t see anywhere else.
Many use the Shaving Cream as an actual substitute for the regular moisturizer products. What kind of shaving cream can do that?

Another key is a sharp blade. Here’s a trick that will help you get a closer shave and save you a lot of money: Buy a razor strop.This is a strip of leather barbers use to sharpen a straight razor. Believe it or not it will also sharpen regular safety razor blades. I’m getting well over 2 months out of a blade and the blade stays very sharp.
