    Shaving is an essential part of any men’s grooming guide as it lets you tidy up unruly fuzz and excessive hair strands that may have been hiding your good looks. While shaving is important, it can irritate your skin and cause it to become sensitive. So, your shaving technique and the products you use are equally important in helping you achieve a clean shave. Whether it’s a messy mop of hair, bushy pits or a bit of facial fuzz, keep it under control by shaving regularly. Check out our tips for moisturising skin after shaving, these should help.

    Washing your face

    Cleansing your face as part of a good grooming routine may seem obvious, but cleansing your face the right way may not be as simple as you think. Aim to cleanse your face twice a day, or after you workout. Hot water and certain chemicals in soaps can strip the moisture from your skin, so wash with warm water and use a moisturising cleanser like our Dove Men+Care Extra Fresh Body and Face Bar to prevent moisture loss.

    Our Body and Face Bar is formulated with a ¼ moisturising cream to hydrate your skin with moisturising care. So always use cleansers that clean your skin and provide hydrating care to keep your skin looking healthy and feeling good.

    Wearing sunscreen

    A good sunscreen helps to reduce pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles associated with exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays. So every time you step outside or if you spend a lot of time next to a window, layer on a high SPF sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage and keep it looking healthy.

    Moisturising your skin

    Saving the best for last, moisturised skin is the foundation of any meaningful grooming routine. When your skin loses moisture, it can become dry and sensitive and begin to peel, crack and itch as a result. That’s why all our Dove Men+Care products are formulated with a ¼ moisturising technology to help maintain skin’s moisture and hydration levels. Whether it’s your scalp, body or face, especially after shaving, moisturise your skin to keep it feeling comfortable and looking good.
