Avoiding Razor Burn | Pureman Blog

Posted by on

Avoiding razor burn is all about preparation, preparation, preparation. Razor burn is the general redness and irritation of the skin that tends to follow after shaving. It results from the friction of the razor on the skin and is made worse by shaving against the grain of the hair.

Prevent razor burn by Making sure your face is warm and wet prior to shaving so that the hairs are swollen and easier to shave off – try using a scrub as an exfoliator to help the beard stand erect from the face .

Try placing a warm steamed towel on your face for 30 seconds. Apply a good quality shave cream to reduce the friction on the skin Shave creme is always best applied with a traditional shaving brush.

Shaving brushes have multiple benefits, they work firstly as an exfoliator removing dead skin cells beneath the surface of your beard, applying you creme with your brush in small circular motions always finishing with an upstroke ensures that your beard is erect from the surface of your skin meaning you need to apply less pressure in your pass taking away the need to dig deep into your face with your razor.

Always shave in the direction of the hairs natural growth. Making sure not to press too hard on the razor. Applying a soothing aftershave balm immediately after shaving.

A good quality shave should be a pleasure not a chore.
