Shaving 101: Grooming Tips for Men’s Faces
Posted by Pevonia Marketing on 17th Jun 2022
Love dad but his sharp whiskers not so much? While beards have been trending strong, we also think that a clean-shaven man is always on trend!
So, you can happily give him a big hug this Father’s Day – no chafing involved, Pevonia put together a comprehensive grooming and shaving set for dad with everything he’ll need!
Some guys don’t have a great way to properly remove coarse stubble. But, with the right natural skin care products and shaving tips for men, he’ll stay so youthful-looking that people will ask if he really is your dad.
Tough Love for Pops
Dad may not always listen to your suggestions to step away from the drugstore shaving products, but when he knows the facts about what’s in his Dopp kit, you just might be able to convince him. After all, he likes anything that helps separate the men from the boys. Most shaving foams and products contain harsh sulfates and alcohols that strip the skin of natural oils, breaking down the skin barrier and leaving skin lacking moisture. Sure, there is something gratifying about the squeaky clean feeling these products produce, but they can cause early signs of aging over time. Similarly, that “manly” aroma and bracing “sting” from typical aftershaves come from artificial fragrances and alcohol that trigger irritation and dryness. Even the toughest of men who won’t admit they care about their appearance will be unable to ignore this information.
While everyone loves that fresh post-shave smoothness, no one likes the aftermath of redness, irritation, and tightness. So, let’s get down to business to help prevent this discomfort. Use skin care products for men with ingredients like natural Glycerin, Safflower Oil, and Vitamin E to protect the skin barrier and shield skin from free radicals, nicks, and bumps. Formulas with soothing Chamomile and Lavender can head off shaving irritation at the pass.
Shaving Gifts for Dad
You can take the guesswork out of what to use for a perfect shave with the Pevonia Ultimate Skincare for Him 5-Piece Regimen in Gift Box. This complete collection of shaving gear is ideal for the guy who has everything! Here’s the best way for him to use it:
Step 1: Wash with the Aqua-Gel Foaming Cleanser. This natural skin cleanser is sulfate-free with just enough foam to remove dirt and oil, plus soften the hair.
Step 2: Exfoliate with the Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. This will lift the hair and facilitate a super close shave.
Step 3: Dampen face with warm (not hot!) water and apply the Easy-Glide Shaving Emulsion –one of the best natural shaving creams he will ever experience. With a clean, sharp razor and the natural oils, he’ll be able to effortlessly glide his razor over his skin to deliver a smooth, easy shave minus nicks, bumps, and ingrown hairs. Those with extra coarse hair can benefit by letting the shaving emulsion sit for a minute to soften the beard. Then, if time or inclination allows, applying a hot towel, barbershop style, will show tough beards who’s boss.
Step 4: Apply the Pevonia Soothing After Shaving Balm. With Portulaca, Green Tea, and Arnica, this men's natural aftershave will soothe and cool the skin post-shaving. In addition, Safflower Oil moisturizes and supports a healthy skin barrier, helping avoid ingrown hairs and razor burn. If skin is prone to sensitivity, use an alcohol-free toner to remove chlorinated tap water before applying to help keep it calm.
Hint: This natural aftershave can be used anywhere on the body and works for women and men alike.
Step 5: Protect skin with the Hydrating Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 every day to help prevent visible signs of sun damage. Remind dad that his computer and cell phone emit blue light, an additional cause of photo-aging, so he’ll need to use UV protection even when he stays inside.
Step 6: Moisturize with the Collagen Boost Face Balm for age defense at night. While the mild exfoliation produced by shaving can help trigger cell renewal, the Marine Collagen, Vitamin C, and Peptides in this skin care cream can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, Marine Elastin helps give dad tighter-looking skin and a more revitalized appearance.
Pro Shaving Tips for Men
· Discard your blade after five to seven shaves. But if you frequently get breakouts, ingrown hairs, nicks, or razor burn, you need to toss your blades (safely, of course!) after just two uses.
· Contrary to popular belief or habits, shaving in the same direction as hair growth is the best way to go. If you feel you need to make more than two passes, that is a sign that you need to replace your blade. (We recommended making one to two passes max, rinsing your razor with hot water between each pass.)
· Rinsing the blade well, wiping it with alcohol, and hanging it to dry between shaves are essential to keep it rust and bacteria-free.
· If dad is committed to taking care of his appearance, he can incorporate the Enzymo Spherides Peeling Cream followed by the Ageless Skin Collagen Mask once or twice a week.
Dad or that special man in your life deserves the best! Armed with these unique shaving gifts for dad, he’ll remember how much you care every time he gets ready to conquer the day.
