I wrote an article several years ago about men visiting the barbershop and claiming that their face was sensitive after they shaved. After a little investigating, I learned that many of them dry shaved or simply didn’t take the time to care for their faces. Since then, I’m happy to say that many of these men have stopped complaining, and have actually started to enjoy their shaving regimens.
Do you know what was the most consistent important recommendation I passed on to them? It was to keep the skin hydrated, with a moisturizer of course! Sure, we must remember to maximize the moisture on our skin when shaving, but during the day and night, the skin also needs to stay moist. Consistently moist skin, gives the face the strength needed to handle the unforgiving nature of the sharp blade. So be sure to add that extra step, both AM and PM, because supple skin is also healthier skin!
