How To Get A Great Shave
Prep Your Skin
You want to prep your skin before shaving any part of your body, but especially your facial hair as that skin can tend to be more sensitive. Start by exfoliating your skin, for your face use our Lumière De Vie® Konjac Sponges or Fixx™ Microdermabrasion. For full-body shaving, prep your skin by exfoliating with our Royal Spa® Foaming Brown Sugar Body Scrub. Shaving after a hot shower can help you get a great shave, the steam opens up pores and softens coarse hairs which will help you have a smoother shave.
Now you are ready to begin shaving! Apply our Shopping Annuity® Brand Premium Shave Cream with Activated Charcoal which helps to moisturize and hydrate while helping to prevent dry skin, discomfort and razor burn. With your Shopping Annuity® Brand Performance Razors Shaving System for Men or Shopping Annuity® Brand Performance Razors Disposable Pack for Men use long, even strokes when shaving, and show extra caution around trickier areas, like the neck. Also, it is recommended to shave in the direction of hair growth. If your razor scratches or pulls at the hair, it is time to dispose of the current razor and use a new one.
Shaving can cause irritation to the skin to it is important to treat your skin, especially on your face, after shaving. Add hydration back into your skin with our Lumière de Vie® Hommes Hydrating Aloe Cream. It is formulated to deeply moisturize and help maintain elasticity, the aloe-packed cream reduces the appearance of redness caused by shaving, while hyaluronic acid improves dry skin. Lastly, if you are still rocking a little facial hair after you trim/shave, then be sure to condition your beard or mustache with our Lumière de Vie® Hommes Conditioning Beard Elixir. It contains lightweight oils that condition and smooth facial hair for a softer, more manageable beard. The nourishing blend of fruit and nut oils work to tame coarse beard hairs and prevent breakage for a healthy, silky-looking beard that starts at the root.
