Shaving tips for men with acne

Use an exfoliator

Use an exfoliator to remove dead skin cells from your skin which lifts your stubble, giving you a closer shave, leaving your skin smooth and looking well groomed.


Use pre-shave oil

Have you ever done pre-shave oiling on the skin? Applying pre-shave oil acts as a lubricator which allows the razor to glide easily over the skin. Besides, the pre-shave oil comes with essential oils that have antiseptic properties, thereby, it help reduce the risk of infections in case you get cuts from shaving.


Use shaving gels

Studies have shown that shaving gels may leave residue on your skin even after shave as they contain essential oils that disinfect the skin. Just leave it on your face while you finish having a shower and then rinse it off with water.


Moisturize your face

As you finish your shower, don’t forget to moisturize your skin as it will help retain the moisture, keeping the skin nourished.


Best time to shave

When do you like to shave you skin? Some men like to shave before shower while others do it after shaving. Well, the best time to shave is after a shower when your skin is warm and soft.
