What is "Wet Shaving"?

 A condensed guide to wet shaving:

  1. Preparation: Start by thoroughly washing your face with warm water or taking a hot shower. This helps to soften your facial hair and open up your pores, making shaving easier and less irritating.

  2. Pre Shave Oil: Pre-shave oil softens facial hair and prepares your skin for a close comfortable shave. Our pre-shave oil is packed with carrier oils to soften hairs and protect your skin before shaving by providing an extra layer of lubrication on your skin. This allows your razor to glide effortlessly, reducing the likelihood of pulling and tugging that can lead to irritation. Apply to clean skin where you will be shaving. Let the oil sit for 1 minute, then apply lather.

  3. Lathering: Apply shaving soap to your wet face. Use a shaving brush to create a rich lather by swirling the brush in a circular motion over your face. This step helps to further soften the hair and provides lubrication for the razor.

  4. Shaving: Hold your razor at a 30-degree angle to your skin and shave with the grain of your hair growth. Use short, gentle strokes and rinse the razor frequently in warm water to remove hair and shaving cream buildup.

  5. Rinse and Reapply: After shaving one area, rinse your face with cold water to close the pores and remove any remaining shaving cream. If you need to shave a second time for a closer shave, reapply shaving cream and repeat the process.

  6. Aftershave: Pat your face dry with a clean towel and apply an aftershave product to soothe and moisturize your skin. Look for products that contain ingredients like witch hazel or aloe vera to help reduce irritation and inflammation.

  7. Clean and Maintain Your Tools: Rinse your razor thoroughly after each use and store it in a dry place to prevent rusting. If you're using a shaving brush, rinse it well and hang it upside down to dry to maintain its shape and prolong its lifespan.

Mastering wet shaving takes practice. Be patient to avoid nicks and cuts. Enjoy the ritual and experiment with techniques to find what works best for you.
