Summer may be the right time to shave your beard.
In this season, in fact, many, frightened by the heat, would take the razor and prepare themselves for a nice summer shave.
Others, however, brave highlander of the beard, don’t think in the least and proudly bear their beard on the beach.
So you have to make a decision, shave or don’t shave? This is the dilemma!
If you are determined to shave, here are 10 tips for an optimal shave in the summer months:
1. DO IT NOW!
If you are exposed to the sun with a beard when you have decided to shave it, once you have cut the skin of the hidden face for a long time it will have a different color from the rest of the face. If you have decided to shave, do it now!
2. PREPARE A COLD CLOTH
Basic step at the end of shaving. Take a towel, dip it and keep it in the fridge for at least half an hour. The most daring can even put it in the freezer! A gesture of absolute pleasure after a nice summer shave.
3. TRIM A BIT’
Before shaving your beard you can save a lot of time by shortening it with a trimmer, giving the razor much less work.
4. MAKE A HOT SHOWER
Yes, it’s really hot outside, but hot water is a panacea to prepare the skin for shaving: it softens the hair and relaxes the skin favoring a greater smoothness of the razor and avoiding annoying accidents.
5. PREPARING THE SHAVING
After all these months, your beard will be particularly resistant: before shaving it, hydrate it and soften it with the All-in-one Beard Oil.
6. WHIP THE CREAM
It’s time to prepare the foam. Assemble the Shaving Cream with the brush, using the right amount of water and maybe helping yourself with a nice bowl. The foam must be dense and not too watered down. The perfect foam does not exist, you will need to understand which consistency is best for you. Moreover, the shaving cream has become a pocket-sized product, so that you can take it even on holidays: choose the Nomad Edition that matches your favorite Secret Potion!
7. DON’T HAVE HURRY
After a long time without shaving, the skin could be particularly delicate and sensitive. Take your time, do not be in a hurry and above all do not overdo it because you could risk irritating your skin.
8. AND NOW A NICE REFRESH!
The moment has arrived for the icy cloth, just like into the barbershop! Place it gently on your freshly shaven face, it will immediately soothe the sensation of warmth and soothe the skin. Basically, after using the cold cloth, I use an emollient aftershave like our Agnostico Aftershave Lotion to give a feeling of long-lasting relief.
9. TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN
Freshly shaved skin is much more sensitive and it needs special care and attention. So take the habit of keeping it hydrated with the Anti-Stress Hydrating Serum, which is able to ease the trouble of shaving thanks to the hemp extract.
10. THINK ABOUT THE NEXT SHAVING
Never forget to moisturize your skin daily and drink plenty of water. The first shaving after bringing the beard for months could, in fact, be more difficult because the skin will be drier and the hair more resistant. So pay the right attention.
