Men experience dry or tight skin that is mostly a result of bad shaving habits. This is not permanent and using the right techniques & products you can enjoy a smooth shave on dry skin and resolve all shaving issues.
A long known trick is to avoid alcohol based products, e.g. lotions, and even shaving foams to an extent. I have seen a normal skin becoming dry as well with heavy use of popular alcohol based aftershave lotions because they smell good!!! Remember, just because something smells good, doesn’t mean it’s good for your skin.
Follow these 5 steps to enjoy a smooth shave on a dry skin:
- Pre Shave Oil
- Shaving Tools
- Blades, and
Prepare your skin using a non-alcohol soap, cleanser, or face wash. The best is to make a face wash at home using natural ingredients – e.g. blend beetroot and aloe vera together, add a teaspoon of malai. Mix it with rose water and 2-3 drops of lemon. Apply on your face for a few minutes, wash, rinse, and you are ready to start shaving.
DO NOT USE A PRE SHAVE SCRUB ON A DAILY BASIS AS THAT WILL MAKE MATTERS WORSE. Instead use a natural face wash or cleanser or any of the home remedies to make your skin soft before your shave.
2. Pre-Shave Oil
Wash the face wash off with warm water and apply pre shave oil. Warm water will help open your pores that are causing dryness and help moisturize & prepare your skin for the shave.
Dryness or tight skin is often a result of using old, blunt blades. Your skin is more important than a blade, hence use a new blade to get a smooth shave.
Using a non alcohol after shave. Preferably one that has a good element of moisturizer, like the Pink Woolf After Shave Lotion. This is a cream based after shave designed for dry skin and works well just as a moisturizer too. Give the process a few days and you will soon be on the path to a smooth, supple shaved skin.
Pink Woolf was started after years of using cheap and bad products that have chemical ingredients in them. They smell good, are packaged well, BUT they are not your skin’s best friend. My skin was constantly dry, chapped, cut skin (even while using a cartridge razor), and shaving irritation prone. After visiting a dermatologist, I shifted to Wet Traditional Shaving Methods and my skin became & better with healthy, natural ingredients that worked on my skin.
So, when we started Pink Woolf, we consciously decided to use vegan ingredients like Aloe Vera, Olive Oil, Shea Butter, and Coconut Oil. And combined these with other essential oils. These oils are natural, organic, and work to make your skin a better version that ever before. We hope you like these thought through and well researched natural & organic products.
