At the end of week five out of the second six week project with VanYulay shaving products there is not a lot to report on the healthiness of my skin. It continues to have that soft and supple feel with a healthy glow. This week I want to talk about one of my favorite topics of a pre and post prep routine and the products that can be used for this routine. I always urge any shaver whether it’s wet shaving or cartridge shaving to invest in a good pre and post prep shaving routine. Investing in this routine is investing in your skin. No matter what mode of shaving you prefer it’s all damaging to your skin. Some modes of shaving even more so than the next. Anytime you run a razor across your skin you are causing a certain level of trauma. Some trauma is worse than others but it still happens.
Over time your skin will start to feel the effects of all of the past trauma and in the end it will make an impact on how your skin looks and feels. One way to slow down the effects of trauma to your skin caused by your razor is to moisten and hydrate the skin as much as possible before and after each shave. It’s equally important to tone and tighten the skin to fight wrinkles and the signs of aging. So what products do I suggest? I think that there are several products you could use in conjunction with your shave soap or cream to help get the job done. Pre-shave oil, After Shave Balm and Splash are all good products to use and don’t forget the moisturizer. When buying these products I would make sure that they contain some of these ingredients. Coconut Oil, Emu Oil, Jojoba Oil, Argon Oil, Castor Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Aloe Vera, Glycerin and Beeswax. These are just a few ingredients that posses good skin care qualities and attributes. Once you start researching certain pre and post prep shaving products you will find even more with natural ingredients that I have not listed but have the same great skin care qualities. Once you add these products to your shaving routine you will be happy that you did. Week five is over with and onto week six. So sad the six weeks is coming to an end. I will definitely be looking forward to the next six week project with VanYulay shaving products! Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you!
