So, you just gave yourself the ultimate Hajamat by following all the best shaving practices such as using the best blades and implementing the correct technique. However, your shaving routine shouldn’t end with the last stroke of your razor, but, should be followed by a post-shave routine that is essential for a smooth and youthful skin.

Here’s our step-by-step guide to good habits to get into post-shaving

  1. Cleanse your face 

    Post your shave, Rinse your face with lukewarm water and wash off the remaining shave lather.Take your time to rinse off, so as to guarantee that all of the shave lather has been completely removed, otherwise, any lather residue left behind may dry up on your face causing post-shave irritation.

  2. Splash with cold water

    With your face clean and free of any residual shave lather, it’s time for that ritualistic cold-water rinse. Not only this cold-water splash feels pretty refreshing, but, this provides multiple benefits:

    1. Helps is tightening of skin by closing up your pores, thus, preventing excess dirt to clog up the skin.
    2. Helps soothe any shave related cuts or any other shave related skin irritation.
    3. Thoroughly cleanses pores to protect against any infections and prevents growth of ingrown hairs
  3. Gently Wipe Dry your skin

    Next, use a clean towel for drying your face and neck to prevent any germs or bacteria ending up on your face, and make sure you’re being gentle to reduce the risk of irritation.

  4. Use an Alum Block 

    After rinsing and drying your face post shave, simply wet the alum block and gently run it across your freshly shaved face. Alum Block is an age-old tool that acts as an antiseptic and will instantly seal minor cuts and help prevent against any bacterial infection.

  5. Finish with a Alcohol free Aftershave balm

    Once you are done with alum block, take a small amount of after shave balm in your hand. Circularly rub on your face and neck, working from top to bottom.  It will sooth the skin irritations and improve its condition overtime.

     

    While most men resort to the conventional aftershave, which contains some level of alcohol and a pleasant scent, it can be very harsh on your skin – causing it to dry out and appear flaky. Why not stand out from the crowd with our after shave balm, it has a special formula containing Baluchiol, which helps reduce irritation and supplements your skin with nourishing properties instead of drying it out.

 

Getting the perfect shave takes dedication, from prepping your facial hairs to shaving the correct way. Don’t let it go to waste with a bad post-shave routine, or a lack thereof. Stick to these steps using superior products like our after shave balm, and we’re sure you’ll walk away from your shave a brand-new man.
