Gifts for Father’s Day: cosmetics for an ideal shave
Parents are not always easy to give, but for Father’s Day they can not run out of detail. Sometimes the simplest and most useful is the best. Therefore, male cosmetics and, in particular, cosmetics for shaving, become an ideal option. The next problem comes when deciding which product to buy . Keep in mind that for shaving there are preshave products , cleaning during shaving, and aftershave .
Of all of them there are different types and textures. In order to know which one suits each parent, it is necessary to take into account:
• The frequency with which you shave.
• Which method do you use (blade or razor)?
• If you have sensitive skin .
• If you use only water or some other cosmetic.
The previous products ” are used mainly when the shaving is with blade , since they diminish the resistance to the cut, soften the hair and protect of the abrasive effects of the blade, with what diminishes the irritation. For shaving dry, lotions are used, which rapidly evaporate moisture from the skin, “explains Lorena Gómez, pharmacist specializing in Dermopharmacy of the Official College of Pharmacists of Ciudad Real .
Products to apply during shaving
Cleaning products at the time of shaving are used only when shaving with a blade . They are foaming creams, foam-forming gels or spray foam. Gomez says that they must moisten well, form enough foam and not be sensitizers. This product is responsible for toning, moisturizing and providing freshness.
The aftershaves are used whether the shaving is with a blade or with a machine (dry). Its use is necessary since the desquamation of the cells and the dryness produced by the utensil used can not be prevented. Decrease tightness and irritation.
Depending on the sensitivity of the user’s skin, some textures or others are used. The lotions and creams are for skin that endure everything. For very sensitive skin, Gomez suggests balms, emulsions or gels .
Gomez remembers that you should change the razor every 10 or 20 days. “It depends on the frequency of the shaving, the thickness and quantity of the hair and the blade used. At the time when it produces the first irritation or you notice that it does not slip the same is when it has to be replaced if it has been used for a long time “. If they are disposable, after use.
Also, add some trick:
• Shave after a hot shower or bath because the cuticle softens and makes hair softer.
• Exfoliate the skin previously to remove dead skin, unclog clogged pores, prevent the growth of ingrown hairs, etc.
• Shave in the direction in which the hair grows . Doing it against the grain will speed up shaving, but the likelihood of skin irritation increases exponentially.
