Step Five of Five Steps to a Perfect Shave and Healthy Skin

Most important that your aftershave and colognes DON’T contain alcohol

The alcohol dries the skin out and causes potential damage, ruining all that good work you’ve just done!

If you really must, it is essential that you moisturise first to protect the skin otherwise the alcohol will dry the skin, making it flakey!

Step Four of Five Steps to a Perfect Shave and Healthy Skin

After your shave make sure you close the pores properly…

Post shave, it’s important to close up those skin pores to prevent muck and grime getting in and giving you spots and black heads.

Rinse your face “properly” with warm water and then, if possible, apply a cold towel to close those clean healthy pores.

You should then apply your moisturiser or after shave balm to add fragrance but more importantly, add another line of defence for the skin.

Step Three of Five Steps to a Perfect Shave and Healthy Skin

Whatever razor you use for shaving the most important thing is to GO WITH THE GRAIN of your beard.

If you want to avoid black heads and razor rash then make sure you shave with the grain with your cut throat or safety razor.

You really don’t want to push any soap, dead sin, oil particles into your pores… so with the grain please…

Always make sure your razor is skin temperature before shaving… put in warm water for 30 seconds… the blade is sharper when warm.

And remember, disposable razors are called that for a reason, they should only be used the ONCE!

Phil Weaver, Cut throat barber, talking soap, cream, mouse or gel for lubricating your razor?

Use small circular sweeps with your shaving brush and ensure you cover the whole shaving area.

If you have sensitive skin then make sure you opt for the best product for your skin.

And if you have quite a bit of stubble then you may want to apply oil before your preferred shaving lubricant.

Step One of Five Steps to a Perfect Shave and Healthy Skin

Phil Weaver, Cut throat barber, recommends exfoliating twice a week for the perfect shave and healthier skin.

Use a face scrub with a wheat germ or walnut germ component for the best results.

At other times use a alcohol or sulphate free soap to keep your skin in top shape.

Shaving with a dirty face can cause razor rash and black heads… you don’t want that!

Keep the pores clean and open for healthier skin…

Buy your Face Scrub from Phil in store (more choices) or
online here >>>

I found this a little amusing… when you Google “exfoliate” then it gives you:

• cause (a surface) to shed material in scales or layers. “salt solutions exfoliate rocks on evaporating”

• wash or rub (a part of the body) with a granular substance to remove dead skin cells. “exfoliate your legs to get rid of dead skin”

Obviously the first is for the elite and Royals if David Icke is to be believed, the later for the rest of us mortals 😉
