Pre-shave Essentials

Pre-shave Scrub

In order to help the razor glide smoothly on your skin, our Finsbury Park barbers say it’s important to prep it with the right pre-shaving products. Barbers Camden Town uses a scrub to exfoliate your skin before you begin to shave will remove dead cells that have built up on your skin layer.

It also contributes to reducing the friction between your razor and skin by eliminating any dirt that lays stagnant in between your facial hair strands. A pre-shave scrub by the best barber Golders Green is essential for those dealing with oily skin, although it can give a refreshing experience for any type of skin.

Pre-shave Oil

The application of pre-shave oil by our West Hampstead barbers will add a protective layer to your skin and prevent any major cuts that can occur when shaving.

It’s important if you have extra sensitive skin susceptible to cuts and burns. According to barbers Kentish Town, the oil is an important pre-shaving treatment to help the razor glide smoothly, allowing you to achieve a flawless finish.

But, pre-shave oils aren’t very greasy, and therefore won’t affect the razor’s grip. They absorb into the skin quickly, leaving a hydrated and smooth feel. Your facial hair will become much softer, making it easy and comfortable to shave for barbers North London.

Shaving Essentials

Shaving Razor

As our barbers Islington highlight, selecting a good shaving razor is perhaps the most important aspect of your shaving routine. When you are opting for a close shave, barbers North London don’t recommend using an electric razor.

It doesn’t offer the smooth finish you need. Cartridge razors are a good option to consider but they require constant replacement. But, if you lack practice like our expert barbers Kentish Town, the use of these razors can make your skin prone to cuts and bruises very easily.

It’s important to be very careful. If you are looking for a smooth and close shave with minimal cuts and bruises, your barber Golders Green will use a safety razor (double-edge razor). It’s the best option available for you.

It will not only protect your skin from the harsh blade but also ensure every hair strand is removed effectively. Our St. John’s Wood barbers say that these razors can be quite an investment initially but they are long-lasting and don’t require replacement of blades very often.

Shaving Brush

Your barber Baker Street will use a shaving brush to apply shaving cream evenly onto your skin. It helps them get the right consistency and lather more easily. Shaving brushes usually come in 3 different grades of badger bristles, namely pure badger, best badger, and silvertip.

They are of varying degrees of suppleness, and your barber Golders Green will pick one based on what best suits your requirements. You can also purchase them for home use from our barbershop Waterloo.

The handles of shaving brushes can come in different materials as well. The choice depends on whether you need something ornamental or purely functional.

If you love to own a great shaving set that will not only do a top-notch job but also look great on your bathroom shelf, then you should definitely consider our high-quality shaving sets endorsed by our Hampstead barbers. They include a safety razor, shaving brush, and a stand to hold them. Choose from our:

  • Fitzrovia Mach3 Black Resin Shaving Set
  • Trafalgar Mach3 Black Resin Shaving Set
  • Trafalgar Safety Razor Black Resin Shaving Set

Shaving Cream

Our barbers Islington explain how your facial hair is usually hard and wiry, whereas the skin beneath it is delicate. So, if you try to shave without using a cream or soap, there’s a high chance for your skin to be bruised easily.

According to our barbers North London, the razor will encounter a high resistance when you try to do that. The main purpose of barbers Kentish Town using shaving cream is to hydrate your facial hair, making it easier for the razor to cut it.

It locks moisture in place, tames your bristles, and makes it whole lot fun to shave. Barbers Kentish Town also consider it as a lubricant that protects your skin from being treated harshly in the process of shaving.

That’s not it. Applying shaving cream, as per our barbers Islington, helps you shave in better order, starting from one side and ending from the other. Think of it as a visual aid that helps barbers Camden Town spot shaved and unshaved areas! Finally, shaving cream is also important to help your skin recover after it has been in contact with a razor.

In order to derive all of these benefits, and most importantly, achieve the shaved look you need, it’s important to get your hands on good and effective shaving cream. It should contain any harsh chemicals or irritants that make matters worse!

Post-Shave Essentials

Cooling Gel

There is nothing more irritating than razor burns and inflammation that you deal with after a shave. You could also face skin tightness, minor cuts, and dryness after shaving.

While the above products by Hampstead barbers can help minimize their effects, a cooling gel can provide a more soothing sensation for your skin. While you can be prompted to think of cooling gel as an additional product, our West Hampstead barbers highly recommend you add it to your shaving routine, especially if you have sensitive skin.
