For those with beards, shaving with water is absolutely essential in order to get a closer, smoother, and more comfortable shave. By preparing your beard with proper hydration, you can reduce the force required to cut hair by up to 70%.
Here’s the way to master wet shaving:
Pre-shave: Hydrate your facial hair with warm water for a full three minutes (ideally during a hot shower), and use a hydrating shaving gel, such as Fusion® Proglide® Hydrating Shave Gel, to properly soften hair and help defend your skin against nicks and cuts.
Post-shave: Finish off your shave by rinsing with cold water to close pores, and replenish your skin with a hydrating aftershave balm or lotion, such as the Series 3in1 Instant Hydration SPF15 Moisturiser.
