Top 10 pre shave

Whether you're a seasoned beard wearer or just starting to shave , a pre-shave can be a valuable addition to your shaving routine. Find out what a pre-shave is, its benefits and how to use it properly.

What is a pre-shave?

A preshave is a specially designed product intended to prepare the skin for shaving. It is applied before using shaving cream, soap or gel. Pre-shave products are available in different forms, such as pre-shave cream , pre-shave gel and pre-shave oil . They contain ingredients that moisturise, soften and protect the skin, making shaving smoother and more comfortable.

Benefits of a pre-shave

  1. Skin preparation: A pre shave cream or oil prepares the skin for shaving by softening the beard hairs and opening the pores. This allows the razor to glide more easily over the skin, reducing the chance of irritation and razor burn.

  2. Reduces Friction: By applying a thin layer of preshave product, it reduces the friction between the razor and the skin. This helps to reduce tugging and pulling on the hairs, providing a closer and more comfortable shave.

  3. Hydrates and cares: Many preshave products contain moisturizing and nourishing ingredients such as aloe vera, jojoba oil or glycerine. These ingredients ensure that the skin remains hydrated during shaving, preventing dryness and a tight feeling.

How do you use a preshave?

Using a pre shave is easy and can be integrated into your shaving routine in a few simple steps:

  1. Cleanse and moisturize: Start by cleansing your face and neck with a mild cleanser . Rinse with warm water and pat your skin dry with a towel. Then apply a moisturizing cream or gel to take extra care of your skin.

  2. Apply the preshave: Take a small amount of preshave product and spread it evenly over your face and neck. Gently massage into skin to lift beard hairs and prepare skin for shaving.

  3. Shave as usual: After applying the pre shave oil or cream you can continue to apply your usual shaving cream , soap or gel. Then shave as usual with a sharp razor in the direction of hair growth. After shaving, rinse your face with cool water to close the pores and pat your skin dry.

  4. Condition and Moisturize: Complete your shaving routine by applying a moisturizing aftershave balm or lotion to soothe and hydrate your skin. This will help reduce any irritation and keep your skin healthy and fresh.
