When shaving, you should shave in the direction of the hair growth. Even though you may get a close shave from going against the grain, this can cause ingrown hairs and irritation. Shaving with the hair using a high quality razor will achieve the same close results whilst helping to keep your skin feeling smooth and comfortable.
If you often find that your hair doesn’t feel clean after a shower, it may be that you need to wash twice. Shampooing your hair twice will ensure that you can both remove any styling product build up as well as natural oils and grease from the scalp. Your hair should then look and feel cleaner for longer.
Does your face sometimes appear patchy and uncomfortable post-shave? Using an exfoliator before using your razor rather than afterwards will help to remove any dead skin cells without irritating already-sensitive skin. It will also lift the hairs from the skin, helping you to achieve a closer shave.
Taming your eyebrows doesn’t mean you need to pluck them into perfect arches. Having neat eyebrows can help to frame your face and prevent you from appearing unkempt. Click here to find out everything you need to know about taming brows to ensure you get them looking great without going overboard.
Even though most men shy away from the idea of wearing makeup, a little concealer can completely change your appearance. Dabbing a small amount of concealer around the eye area can hide dark circles, making you appear more awake. You can also apply it to spots to create a clearer complexion.
