Buy Natural Shaving Bars
Considering the importance of using sharp razors, properly preparing your face/facial hair and using the right method/strokes, the type of shaving cream you use and how you lather it may seem a bit inconsequential. However, the truth is that shaving cream plays an equally important role as these other factors.
While many people continue to shave with cheap, canned creams, body soap, or worst of all, with nothing but water, the fact is that using a high-quality shaving bar can easily help you get a closer shave and also reduce or eliminate razor burn, skin irritation, and other common problems.
One of the major problems with the majority of canned shaving creams is that they are loaded with chemicals and artificial lubricants which are necessary to keep the propellants used to expel the cream from the can from drying out your face. Shaving bars on the other hand are usually made from mostly natural ingredients that work to nourish, hydrate, and protect the face, while also typically providing better lubrication to allow the razor blade to gently glide over your skin.
Along with the other artificial ingredients in canned shaving creams are artificial fragrances, most of which smell more like cheap deodorant than anything pleasant. Again, this isn’t a problem with shaving bars though, as you can easily find them in a huge range of more pleasing scents (woody, citrus, spicy, musky, etc.) that both you and those closest to you will love.
Shaving bars are so easy to use, take up little space, and last a lot longer than cans of shaving cream. Simply lather the bars with water, just as you would a bar of soap, and lather onto your skin to be shaved. You will notice how much easier your razor glides over your skin and how much silkier it will feel when you are done. Shaving bars also help reduce the risk of knicks and cuts.
It definitely takes a bit of time to learn to use shaving bars but once you finally get the hang of it, it will surely be a rewarding experience. Don’t forget that getting a quality razor is half the battle. Shaving bars will only be as effective as your razor allows them to be. Safety is important so make sure you replace your razor often. With the help of shaving bars, you are on the right path to smooth, silky, clean-shaven skin.
