Shaving Myths and Tips
See how the experts do it.
Hi I’m Pirooz co-founder of the Grooming Lounge. Today I’m going to teach you how to
achieve a perfect shave. In my next segment, I’m going to talk to you about shaving
myths and tips.
Myth number one or tip number one, we spoke about it earlier is all that foam necessary,
do you need more lather or is it all that lather help you get a better shape, my answer to
that is, “No, it doesn’t man” because what that does is just see all it does is just adds
more— you know it doesn’t even add any cushion on your face, it’s just product. Just put
it on your face that gets in the way of your razor.
So how is it helping you if your razor can’t touch your skin and when all that foam isn’t
touching your skin and as you can see as I told you earlier because I’m using products
that don’t contain alcohol or any harsh ingredients I get a close and clean shave without
any nicks or cuts. But it doesn’t matter if they tell you if it’s moisturizing or it doesn’t
matter if it’s a gel that foams up, foam does absolutely nothing.
Next myth, shaving downwards, well it’s really not shaving downwards it’s called going
with the grain. So you have a choice of going with the grain and if your skin sensitive or
if you have a tendency to break out or bump up, I advice you to just go against the grain,
those of us who have you know a thicker beard or our skin isn’t that sensitive or have
trained our beards, it’s okay for you to go against the grain and against the grain when
you’re going against the direction of growth with the grain which most people call going
down is going to with the direction of growth.
Next myth, why you use the same brand for all? Well, not necessarily, if you noticed I
cocktailed just like creating a cocktail making a maker’s drink, I cocktailed a shave oil
and a shave cream together. Although they’re from the same brand I could cocktail that
shave oil with any shave cream I want or vice-versa so no, you’re not stuck to one
particular brand. It’s fun to actually cocktail products and if you’re using well maid
products there’s no problem with cocktail.
Next myth, soap as I explained earlier soap is drying to the face, it’s got very harsh
astringents in it that strip away all the moisture on your face so the goal is to always wash
your face and cleanse before you start to shave and you don’t want to use the same soap
that you just used cleaning other body areas, other private parts or things like that. Why
would you want to put that on your face, so what I recommend doing is using a cleanser,
so soap is bad, targeted cleanser is good.
Next myth, water, coldwater, hot water, coldwater, well like I said in the beginning I
advice you start shaving after we’ve taken a hot shower because the steam and the heat
will open up your pores and soften your beard and that’s the best time to shave is right
after a shower. You never want to just walk up to the mirror and start shaving and when
you’re finished with your shave I advice you to use cooler or colder water to close pores
and shut everything back down. Most people think, oh I need to use hot water when I
finish the shave. Not at all you want to close your pores back down and you want to cool
your face back down.
In the next segment I’m going to teach you about some basic tools and equipment you
need to have to get the perfect shave.
