Top 10 pre shave

Whether you're a seasoned beard wearer or just starting out with shaving, 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 preshave?

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

Benefits of a preshave

  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 risk of irritation and razor burn.

  2. Reduces Friction: By applying a thin layer of preshave product, it reduces friction between the razor and the skin. This helps to reduce hair pulling and tugging, resulting in a smoother and more comfortable shave.

  3. Hydrates and conditions: Many preshave products contain moisturizing and nourishing ingredients such as aloe vera, jojoba oil or glycerin. These ingredients keep the skin hydrated during shaving, preventing dehydration and tightness.

How do you use a preshave?

Using a pre shave is easy and can be incorporated 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. Next, apply a moisturizer or gel to add extra care to your skin.

  2. Apply the preshave: Take a small amount of pre shave product and spread it evenly over your face and neck. Gently massage it into the skin to lift the beard hairs and prepare the 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 cold water to close pores and pat your skin dry.

  4. Groom and moisturize: Finish your shaving routine by applying a hydrating after-shave balm or lotion to soothe and moisturize your skin. This will help reduce any irritation and keep your skin healthy and fresh.
