PUT AN END TO RAZOR BURN AND SKIN IRRITATION
Step 1: Analysis of beard grain
It's easiest to see the growth grain of your beard when the hair is a bit longer. Take a close look at the hair and assess the angle at which it sticks out of your skin. This is the direction in which you should shave.
Step 2: Preparing to shave
To keep the hair of your beard soft and make it easier to shave without irritation, place a hot towel on the areas you want to shave. After a few minutes, the hair will be soft, and you can remove the towe.
Step 3: Hot blades shave better
Before shaving, apply lavera Men Sensitive Mild Shaving Foam to your face and neck. Hold your razor blade under hot water for a few moments to get an ideal shave. Start shaving the sides of your face below your sideburns, and work downward toward your neck step by step. Align the blade parallel to your sideburns and shave in short strokes with the grain of your beard. Make sure not to run the razor over the same area too many times. For a closer shave, it's best if your skin is taut. Pull it gently with your hands, or flex the muscles in your face.
Important tip: Rinse the blade with hot water several times during the process.
Extra tip: Immediately after shaving, rinse off any shaving foam residue with warm water. Gently and carefully pat the skin dry, then apply lavera Men Sensitive Soothing Aftershave Balm to soothe your distressed skin and prevent razor burn. This product combines moisturising care with the antiseptic properties of aftershave lotion.
