Pre-shave: preparation for shaving

A good pre-shave prepares the skin for shaving and ensures a close shave. Pre-shave can be used in various forms, such as a lotion , balm or cream. These products help to soften the hairs and moisturize the skin, making the razor glide more smoothly over the skin. They also reduce the friction between the blade and the skin, reducing the risk of irritation and cuts.

Aftershave: the care after shaving

After shaving, the skin can sometimes be irritated or red. Aftershave helps to soothe and care for the skin. Aftershave often has a refreshing effect and closes the pores, making the skin less sensitive to bacteria and impurities. Aftershave can be used in the form of a lotion, gel or balm. Note that some aftershaves contain alcohol, which can dry out and irritate the skin. Therefore choose an aftershave without alcohol or with a low percentage of alcohol.

Cut while shaving? Use an alum block.

Alum blocks are an essential part of the shaving routine for men who shave regularly. These small blocks are used to treat minor nicks and cuts that can occur during shaving. It is important to treat these wounds as they can lead to irritation and infection if left unattended.

Alum cubes are made from potassium alum, a natural mineral that has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties. It is an effective remedy for stopping bleeding and soothing the skin after shaving. To use it, moisten the block with water and rub it over the affected area. There may be a slight stinging sensation, but this is normal and usually only lasts a few seconds.

If you don't already have an alum block in your shaving kit, it's definitely worth purchasing one. It is an inexpensive and effective way to care for your skin and treat cuts after shaving. In addition, it lasts a long time, so you can enjoy it for a long time. Make sure you buy a high quality alum block from a reputable brand such as Taylor or Old Bond Street to ensure you get the best quality.
