Barbershop shaves are a thing of the past, but the images remain: The customer relaxes as the chair is put into the prone position and the barber places a hot, steaming towel over his face. This wasn’t done to just make the customer feel good (although it did that, too), but to soften and relax the stubble before the shaving cream was applied, assuring a smooth, close shave. Today, the same effects can be achieved with Art of Shaving Men Pre-Shave Products. Even better, these oils and gels provide botanical oils to soothe and soften the skin while preparing the stubble for your own close, easy and non-irritating shave.
Unlike the hot towel trick, which dries out the skin even as it prepares the face for shaving, Art of Shaving Men Pre-Shave Products actually helps improve the skin by providing hydrating oils to keep the tissues soft and supple. Sufficiently softened facial hair cuts easily and cleanly, and is less likely to become ingrown in the pores. By using it before, Art of Shaving Men Pre-Shave Products leaves skin feeling better after a shave.
