How to start wet shaving
We are over two months into the new year and I bet you've already outlined your resolutions in time for Jan 1st. But, let's be honest… a few of those have probably already fell by the way side.
Thats okay, we have all been there. At the end of the day, we use the start of the new year as a great excuse to try to become a better version of ourselves. Quit bad habits, pick up new ones, and start looking after ourselves little more.
Did it ever cross your mind that an easy way to dip your toe into the water of self care can be as simple as getting a better shave everyday? You can easily bring many of the luxuries of a nice hot towel barber shave into your own routine with very little effort. Sometimes the easiest changes to make involve simply improving habits you already have.
Why would you want to start wet shaving? This is an entire topic in itself, but to sum it up quickly, you can cut down on irritation, razor burn, in-grown hairs, and implement a skin care into your grooming routine without doing anything extra.
Now how do you do that? Like any new routine or habit, small changes are easy to implement. First, start with a Pre-Shave Oil. This is one of the easiest ways to step up your shave by just layering a small amount of oil under your cream or soap. From there, jump into your first Safety Razor and a variety pack of blades. When you get the hang of shaving with your new razor and you find a blade that works best for your hair type and skin type, make the plunge and pick up a brush and soap and learn to lather. With a simple progression like this, you can build momentum and slowly roll into the world of wet shaving, without being overwhelmed with technique and information.
It really is that simple. By slowly playing with a few products and adding small habits in your daily shave routine, you can make 2019 the year you started pampering yourself with a great shave. It can be intimidating at first, but trust me, it is worth it!
