Warning: Using a Cheap Shaving Cream May Actually Make Rosacea Worse
Many cheap shaving creams contain harsh chemicals that will dry out your skin and increase facial redness (if you suffer from rosacea). Shave Shaving Cream does not contain any harsh chemicals such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate.
Shave Shaving Cream is specially developed for men with rosacea or other sensitive skin types. It will not dry out or irritate the skin.
Over the years, we have tested many common shaving cream ingredients and discovered which ingredients aggravate rosacea or are just bad for sensitive skin.
You can feel confident that Shave Shaving Cream is as gentle as possible to your skin, while giving you the most comfortable and smoothest shave possible.
Wet shaving tips
While many men consider wet shaving to be superior over electrical shaving, here are a few tips that will minimize skin irritation and improve your shaving results.
- Wait at least 30 minutes before starting to shave. This will allow the muscles underneath your skin to “wake up”, causing the hairs to stick up more. This will minimize the drag you experience from the shaving blades
- It is usually better to shave after a shower, but if you prefer to shave before you take a shower, wet your face with lukewarm water and wait about 1 minute after you apply the shaving cream. Shave areas with the thickest hair growth (such as the upper lips and chin area) last
- Warm up the shaving blade with warm water and rinse often as the blades get clogged quickly with hairs. Always shave in the direction of your beard’s growth and avoid applying too much pressure on the blades
- Replace shaving blades frequently (usually after 4-7 uses, depending on how heavy your beard growth is), as blunt blades will cause cuts and nicks more easily. Whether to use double, triple or quadruple blades is a personal decision
- Finally, give your face a good rinse with lukewarm water and dry.
