Wednesday, May 6, 2020
Mary Radford, RN

Shaving is about more than your beard. It doesn’t matter how close your shave is if the process leaves your skin red, dry & irritated or full of razor burn & ingrown hair. Plus, there’s the rest of your face to think of. Healthy-looking skin plays a major role in confidence. Because we all know if you look good, you feel good.

We’ve got tips & tricks to help you step up your shaving game and make sure you’re taking care of your skin.  

MEN’S SKIN FACTS

  • Men’s skin is 25% thicker and has a tougher texture due to testosterone levels.
  • It has more collagen, so aging seems slower. But production decreases 1% year starting around age 30.
  • Men have larger pores and glands that produce up to 20% more oil which can leave skin “greasy”.

SKIN SOLUTIONS + SHAVING TIPS

REDNESS + SENSITIVITY

CONCERN
Red, irritated, sensitive skin happens when your moisture barrier is stressed. Natural moisture escapes leaving it dry and compromised so environmental irritants + shaving wreak havoc.

SOLUTION
Your skin needs our SOOTHE Regimen. It works to reduce visible redness and relieve dryness + irritation so you get healthy-looking, smooth skin, and a better shave.

SHAVING TIP
Exfoliate 2x a week with ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste. Getting rid of dead skin will help you get a closer shave. Then, use SOOTHE Gentle Cream Wash as shaving cream to soften hair. 

ACNE + PORES

CONCERN
Clogged pores + breakouts happen when hormonal changes + stress increase oil production. Acne, especially if red or inflamed can make shaving a challenge. 

SOLUTION
Our UNBLEMISH Regimen clears adult acne and visibly minimizes pores + signs of aging.  It’s an easy + effective way to remove dirt, excess oil + daily impurities to clear skin and prevent future breakouts.

SHAVING TIP
3-5x a week add extra exfoliation with ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste. Also, try using our Acne Wash as a shave cream that also helps keep blemishes at bay. Be careful not to shave over any breakouts.

DISCOLORATION

CONCERN
Age spots + discoloration come from excessive sun exposure. They can make you look older and become more prominent over time.

SOLUTION
Try our REVERSE Brightening Regimen. It exfoliates + brightens to reveal a noticeably more even-toned, healthier-looking complexion. Even the sunscreen is made with brightening ingredients.

SHAVING TIP
Use the REVERSE Deep Exfoliating Wash before you shave to remove dead cells, smooth skin and soften your beard. Apply shaving cream after as usual.

LINES + WRINKLES

CONCERN
Everyone gets lines + wrinkles with age. Loss of firmness + enlarged pores can also start to appear. All this can make it more difficult to get a close shave than it used to be.

SOLUTION
Our REDEFINE Regimen visibly improve fine lines, wrinkles + loss of firmness for younger-looking skin and an easier shave.

SHAVING TIP
Use the Daily Cleansing Mask as directed to exfoliate + remove dead skin before shaving.

EXCESS OIL + BREAKOUTS

CONCERN
Teens often deal with increased oil, breakouts + clogged pores. And it can be a hit to their confidence.

SOLUTION
Our SPOTLESS Regimen helps eliminate acne, deep clean pores + control the appearance of oil in just 2 steps, 2 minutes, 2 x a day. Start seeing results day 1.

SHAVING TIP
Wash your face with the Daily Acne Wash to exfoliate + clean away oil to help soften skin + beard hair. Be careful to avoid blemishes when shaving.

BLOTCHINESS + DEHYDRATION

CONCERN
When your skin gets stressed, it can look blotchy, dull + dry. This can be caused by changes in diet or exercise, environmental aggressors, lack of sleep or too much blue light from screens.

SOLUTION
Our RECHARGE Regimen acts like a super vitamin for your skin. It exfoliates, breaks down pollution, hydrates and protects from UV rays so your skin feels balanced and looks healthy.

SHAVING TIP
Use the 3-in-1 Super Cleanser to unclog pores + smooth pre-shave.


MORE SHAVING TIPS:

  • Hydrated hair is 65% easier to cut-so after a shower or proper cleansing is best
  • Shave with the growth of hair holding the blade at a 30-degree angle.
  • Use small strokes without pressing down on the skin.
  • Shave your neck + chin last these areas need more time to soften the beard
  • Take extra care around uneven areas.
  • Frequently rinse the razor in warm water +  store it in a clean, dry place
  • For redness post shaving apply SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment to visibly calm your skin
  • If you have acne, use a light touch around acne and never shave off the top of blemishes

Psssst, don’t forget that Father’s Day is just around the corner. Give the Dads in your life an unexpected gift of skincare this year, and tell them that they will thank you later.
