In search of the perfect shave? We’re here to help. Sunday, October 18 is No Beard Day and we want to give you all the holistic and natural tips you need to show off your face.
Don’t shave first thing in the morning. When you first wake up, your face is a bit swollen from sleep. Wait 20 minutes or so to allow your skin to normalize so you don’t cause irritation.
Avoid using hot water. This applies for more than just shaving. Hot water removes your skin’s natural oils and can cause extra dryness.
Apply essential oils. Pre-shave oils can allow for a closer shave. Instead of shelling out extra cash for an expensive shave oil with mysterious ingredients, try our sunflower essential oil instead.
Go with the grain. Though it’s sometimes tempting, always shave in the direction of hair growth. Going against the grain is a recipe for ingrown hairs and itchy, dry skin.
Take a day off. Just like working out, schedule a rest day. Give your skin at least one day a week to recover.
