Shaving with all natural products...
I will try and tell you what to use and why you should be using it.
This is the best, cheapest, fastest, all natural way to shave.
Step 1: Toolery and Product
-Razor that you are comfortable with
-Mild face soap
Step 2: Face Prep
Step 3: Enter Pre-shave Oil
Liberally apply the jojoba oil working it into your facial hair. This is pre-shave oil that will help the razor glide across your skin and give a layer of protection on your face. Jojoba oil is typically used as an organic moisturizer and the key ingredient in some ingrown hair topical treatment products.
Amount of jojoba oil should range from quarter to half-dollar size in your hand.US$
Step 4: Lathering Up
The importance of the brush: it lifts hairs making them easy to chop down and prevents ingrown hairs, less passes of the razor means less irritation too.
Shaving cream: this stays on your face for the longest time and manufacturers can load it full of all types of chemicals and fragrances, do your research and get all natural products. I use the art of shavings lavender shaving cream.
Amount of shaving cream: half the size of a gumball for the stuff I use.
Benefits of a bowl: It keeps the shaving cream warm for longer, after your first pass shaving the lather should still be warm for the touch ups. A bowl is also good if you want to use a shaving soap instead of cream.
Step 5: Shaving With a Light Hand
Do one stroke, then clean your razor with hot water, repeat till done. This is important so don't be lazy.
Step 6: Finish Line
Clean your kit with hot water and dry your razor, use rubbing alcohol to keep the blades cleaner and sharper longer.
Now feel beautiful.
