Some tips for the perfect shave

You don’t have the skills of a barber, nor the patience.

No worries! Simply follow our shaving guide. Your instrument: gel or shaving foam? It's the famous question we all struggle with. Although shaving gel is more convenient to use, given the vast selection of products adapted to all skin types, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to find shaving foam if that’s what you prefer.

When you were younger, you dreamt about it. Dad’s straight razor. Why not try it yourself? Not just for its vintage look, but also because of how easy it is to use.

Shaving tips: shave in the same direction of the hair growth to avoid skin irritation and cuts. Be sure to rinse your face with cold water to close pores and keep skin firm. Also, don’t forget the after-shave! It disinfects razor burn and soothes irritation. We suggest the Hydra Energetic After-Shave Balm Icy-Effect that reduces skin temperature by 1.5 C°. In just one step, skin is hydrated, soothed and firm.

To be avoided: lotions or after-shave balms that are alcohol-based. Unless you want to play the tough guy, there is no need to suffer for good looks! So, ready to give your skin the treatment it deserves?
