Looking your best and feeling great does not have to come with the cost of painful and unsightly shaving irritation. You know when the razor knicks your neck, causing a dark rash or even worse, ingrown hairs. No need to to fret my brothers. We’ve got you covered, ready to break down truth from fiction armed with the right information (not all advice is good advice). Avoid these 3 common shaving myths. Trust us your face will thank you later!
LIE #1: PRE-SHAVE ROUTINES ARE ONLY FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
FALSE! In fact, every guy should be doing proper shave prep before putting a blade to their face. The key to a great shave is to reduce friction between the skin and the blade. To ensure a superior experience make sure your face is squeaky clean and exfoliated; you will need a clean mug in order to achieve maximum success. A great way to do that is to apply a pre-shave oil to increase razor glide and soften the hair to protect against irritation, bumps, and burn. Try Easy Primer to start your shave the right way!
LIE #2: YOU NEED A GOOD, FOAMING LATHER TO GET A CLOSE SHAVE
FALSE! We are programmed to believe a thick lather ensures a better shave. Thick foam actually stops you from being able to see where you're shaving, leading to more cuts, nicks, and irritation. Like who wants to walk around like you just went ten rounds with Mike Tyson? Instead of getting knocked out, go foam-free with a clear shave gel. Less strokes, less irritation, less drama AND more accuracy? What more do you need? Plus you'll get the cooling sensation and moisturizing effect of aloe. Never miss a spot with Hydro-Glaze shave gel!
LIE #3: IF YOUR AFTERSHAVE DOESN'T STING, THEN IT'S NOT WORKING!
FALSE! Alcohols tighten and dry the skin, instead of giving the moisture you need post-shave causing irritation and, in some cases, acne. Your skin needs to recover and be rehydrated. Stop reaching for your father’s after shave and venture over to a safer, less aggressive solution. That's why you need a post-shave lotion to soothe and moisturize your skin--plus you can keep razor bumps and in-grown hairs away with our clinically-proven Bump Clear.
It's all about the right system in order to achieve the right shave. That's the Frederick Benjamin way. That’s the Frederick Benjamin difference. That’s the Frederick Benjamin lifestyle!
