Shaving is much more than just taking a razor to your face, there is an art to it that involves pampering your skin to perfect smoothness. The elegance of hand-crafted razors meeting the indulgence of ingredients like English oak and jojoba oil gives men that sleek kissable edge and dapper look. Whether you’re a fan of a little scruff or a clean shave, the perfect shave is said to set the tone for the day.
TTS Insider: Did you know the first copper razors were invented around 3000 BC? Prior to that, two seashells were used to remove hair (ouch!)
Exceptional shaves don’t have to be reserved for shaving parlors, they can also be experienced at home if you have the right tools. Luxury grooming brands have transformed the ritual into an art, using essential oils to lather up and moisturize the face and neck. Healthy skin is not just trending as a ‘her’ thing, it is an 'us' thing.
PICK A SIZE
Get to know your body and how fast your hair grows. Pick a favorite length of stubble and adjust the blade guard to your desired length, working your way backward, shorter and shorter until you hit that sweet spot - all the while making sure to keep those necklines clean.
Your skin needs to be hydrated to avoid cuts while shaving, so use formulas that nourish while moisturizing. The ELEMIS Ice Cool Foaming Shave Gel and ELEMIS Skin Soothe Shave Gel do just that. The ingredients mold to the face for that perfect shave. Chinese dates blended with aloe vera, arnica, chamomile, and menthol bring about a smoother and brighter complexion, even for the most sensitive skin types.
FIND YOUR RHYTHM
Oils and creams may be trending, but knowing how to apply your regimen is key. Always apply your oil before moisturizing. The heavier product should be layered atop the skin, protecting it from toxins and UV rays. ELEMIS Smooth Result Shave & Beard Oil helps to prep that stubborn stubble for a clean shave by softening them with hazelnut and grapeseed oils.
