The trick to having a Gillette quality shave, that truly is the best a man can get comes in the preparation. If you take an axe to your face straight after running 40 miles being chased by a bear auditioning for the Revenant, you are going to have cuts and scratches all over it. Moisturizing your face first is a must. Showering or using a hot towel is an ideal way first, it will leave your skin moisturized, soft and flexible. This reduces redness, abrasions and harsh cuts.

 

THE RIGHT CLEANING AGENT

Try to use a pre-shave solution that doesn’t use any toxic ingredients like sulfates or dimethicones. They aren’t exactly healthy for you and will cause your skin to break out, and infect your skin. Most shampoos boast these ingredients removed, so if you have a shampoo that doesn’t have these damaging ingredients use it during your shower.

 

SHAVE OILS DURING THE SHAVE

COLD WATER

Every jumped in a cold lake, or ocean? Everything shrinks. After a hot shower your skin pores are open and your skin is flexible to allow for a close shave with minimal irritation. Now that you have treated yourself with a close shave its time to close up your pores and shock your skin into staying smooth. Splash some cold water on your face. This will seal your skin and prevent bacteria from getting in and infecting your freshly shaved face.
