We know that beards are a massive trend, however how do you feel about a clean shave? If you don’t shave correctly, it can actually cause a lot of issues including ingrown hairs and razor burn – which isn’t pleasant! In our final video to launch from the A Day In The Life series, Mat is sharing his shave routine with us. If you have missed the other videos from the series, make sure you check them out here. If you’re looking to get a perfect shave like Mat, we’re here to help!
Whilst we’re sure you know the basic steps on how to shave, there are a couple of things we’d like to mention. Exfoliate before you shave, as it helps the hairs to stand on end, allowing you to get a closer shave. Once you’ve got the work done and finishing shaving, it’s essential to finish with an post shave balm. What this does is helps to calm and soothe the skin, ensuring you don’t get razor burn.
We’ve created a video with Mat to take you through a shaving routine, watch it here:
Now that you know how Mat does it, why not try it for yourself? Below are some of our favourite products from the video. We know that a lot of men tend to have a specific shaving cream they know and love, so we’ve left that product out. If you’re looking to switch up your shaving routine, these are what we recommend you try.
There you have it! If you’re looking to take your shave routine to the next level, these are the products we recommend you try.
