Facial hair. You either love it or hate it.
You love it when it makes its debut in your early teens and announces your entry into manhood. You similarly hate it when it doesn’t sprout at all, and you spend you’re the best of your high school days in front of a mirror, coaxing the growth of a single filament like a prize winning rare orchid gardener and announcing, with loud whoops of joy, the tiny hint of a wispy strand on your chin.
The Panasonic delivers self-care and easy maintenance like no other.
Fast forward to maturity – You love your bristles when your girl smiles when they touch her face. You hate it when you have to trim them every other day.
Either way, most gentlemen have to live with the reality of a bi-weekly, if not daily, depilatory duty as part of their morning ablution process.
So old boy or young buck, here are a few tips to make the process somewhat easier to undertake.
Avoid shaving first thing in the morning. Your face would still be puffy due to the fluids that collect in your face tissues over a night’s sleep, and the perfect shave would be hard to get.
Stubble should be wetted with warm or hot water before shaving. This swells the hair shaft allowing the blade to cut the hair, not your skin.
Use an exfoliant such as a facial cleanser or scrub to get rid of dead skin cells and open up the pores of the skin to prepare it for a close shave.
Thoroughly massage shave cream into stubble. A vitamin and Aloe Vera based shave cream will provide a close soothing shave and protect against razor rashes and burns.
Invest in the ES-LV9Q WET/DRY, Rechargeable 5-Blade Shaver with Multi-Flex 5D Head, the most high-tech and powerful product on the market instead of a dull blade which is responsible for many shaving cuts as it drags over your face and catches your skin along with the hair of your beard.
As an intentional form of mindfulness – Take your time.
Shaving with grain means shaving in the direction of how the hair grows on your face. It is always best to shave this way. Shaving against the grain can cause redness, rashes and ingrown hairs, which are all painful.
After shaving, apply an oil-free moisturizer to soothe and protect the face. If you prefer an after-shave, check the label for alcohol. Dryness and stinging sensations are by-products of most after-shave products whose primary ingredient is alcohol. It may feel good at the time, but alcohol based after-shaves are actually irritating to many complexions.
To feel better about yourself and your chinnny chin spikes, consider investing in a top of the line shaver of quality and reliability. The ES-LV9Q WET/DRY, Rechargeable 5-Blade Shaver with Multi-Flex 5D Head is the equivalent of treating yourself to your first luxury watch, which will eventually become an heirloom for your son. Investing in a product with advanced blade production technologies and world-first innovation offers precision, flexibility and comfort while shaving, and it’s mobile. A 2-hour charge will give you 14 days’ worth of battery and the ability to take it anywhere, anytime.
