Four Steps To The Perfect Shave

Shaving is a task that many of us face on a daily basis, but also one that many of us dread.  

Ingrown hairs, blotchy, irritated and inflamed skin are enough to put any man off. 

But that’s where our FourFace: Shave Routine comes in.  

This simple, four-step routine provides a closer than close shave, and a clear and smooth finish – plus a whole range of other benefits from removing excess oil and dead skin; preventing acne, blackheads and rashes; and repairing dry and damaged skin.  

Basically, it’s everything you need to nail your shaving game.  

Here’s how it’s done: 

Step 1: A burn free shave always needs to start with fresh, clean skin, so begin by wetting your face with warm water. Squeeze a small amount of our Cleansing Face Wash into your hands and rub gently into your face in small circular motions, then rinse.  Our Face Wash is designed to prepare your skin for shaving, and prevent acne, spots, blackheads and rashes in the process.  

Step 2: Now it's time to dive deep into your pores to remove dirt, oil and grime with our Deep Cleansing Exfoliant. Apply in circular motions and build up to a thick lather, paying extra attention to the areas you will shave. Rinse. 

Step 3: Apply our Hydrating Shaving Gel generously to your face and lather it up. It's enriched with aloe vera and witch hazel to protect and soothe the skin, for the ultimate close shave. Shave up and against the grain, rinsing the blades after every few strokes.  

Step 4: Last but by no means least, use your finger to dab small amounts
of our Revitalising Moisturiser onto your cheeks, forehead, chin and nose. Massage the moisturiser over your entire face, to be leave your skin repaired, nourished and invigorated. 

And that's it – job done.  

Some of our extra shaving top tips include:

- Always exfoliate before shaving to prevent extra irritation. 

- Go gently - hard pressure can irritate your skin. 

- Run your fingers over your face to check for stubble and roughness, this will ensure you only go over areas that you really need to.  

- Store your razor in a dry place. Moisture can lead to rust and bacteria.   

- Avoid using dull blades, make sure you are regularly replacing your razor or changing the razor head.
