How to shave a beard, and other grooming lessons
When it comes to grooming and how to shave, a little expertise can help. Six of the most asked shaving questions are answered below.
How to avoid shaving rash:
The most important thing you can do is shave in the same direction your hair grows. Then, make sure you use a post-shave balm to soothe your skin afterwards.
How to avoid ingrown hairs:
Cleansing with a scrub such as Dove Men+Care Deep Clean+ Face Scrub daily will help get rid of dead skin and raise the hair away from the face. Don’t press too hard with your razor when you shave, either – it should glide easily over your face
When should you shave?
It’s always best to shave after a shower, when the moisture and heat has had time to open your pores and soften your hair
How to keep skin healthy:
Keeping skin moisturized is key to leaving it healthy after shaving. Look for shaving creams and post-shave balms that replenish the moisture your razor can take away
Should you use moisturizer?
If you want to keep your skin hydrated and feeling smooth, look for a moisturizer that will help protect your skin from irritation after shaving, like Dove Men+Care Hydrate+ Face Lotion, which instantly leaves skin feeling hydrated
