The importance of conditioning your skin before shaving

Man Shaving in a Mirror

Although it’s necessary for all men to shave – excluding the few out there that seem to ignore that fact completely – it can wreak havoc with the skin causing all kinds of uncomfortable problems. If you don’t take the time to condition your skin before you shave in order to prevent the development of a shaving rash, irritation and spots then shaving will cause you a lot of problems. If you do treat your skin to a thorough clean and moisturising before you shave though you can be sure that you won’t have any such problems.

The Dermalogica Shave System is intended for this exact reason, and includes a number of products for pre-shave protection and a number of products for post-shave protection. Combining a pre-shave routine with a post-shave routine including products like Dermalogica Pre-Shave Guard and Dermalogica Post-Shave Balm, you’ll be providing your skin with the best treatment possible, therefore preventing the likelihood of developing problems like a shaving rash or any other type of irritation.

As well as using proper shaving products before and after your shave it’s also essential to moisturise when you’ve finished too because shaving is extremely traumatic for the skin and moisturising helps to replenish the moisture that the skin loses during shaving.
