At the end of week four out of the six weeks with Lebelle Soaps I want to focus on hydration. Hydration during and after shaving is important and can be achieved in more ways than one. Even with shaving products that promote hydration the art of shaving is tough on your skin. Even with products that provide extra slickness a razor blade gliding across your skin shaving away hair causes trauma to your skin at any level. It is extremely important to maintain hydration levels at all phases of shaving. There are a couple of ways to achieve this daunting task.
One way to achieve and maintain good hydration at the skin level is through certain natural ingredients found in shaving products. Olive Oil, Aloe Vera, Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Calendula Oil and Tea Tree Oil are just a few natural ingredients found in shaving products that promote hydration in the skin. Skin that is well hydrated is also skin that has an increased suppleness and elasticity. This increased level of suppleness and elasticity gives your skin durability against the razor blade running across your skin making less likely to accumulate nicks and cuts along with excessive razor burn. Long term use of these natural ingredients found in many shaving products can save you a lot of pain and agony in the long run.
The point of hydration I want to talk about in this four week summary is the external use of hydration for your skin during shaving. Using a safety razor for shaving has a long list of benefits for your skin. Keeping your safety razor well lubricated during strokes should be included when talking about shaving with a safety razor. Keeping your razor well hydrated may seem like a big task but can be easily achieved in a quick way. Simply make sure your razor is saturated every time you clean the hair from the blade. Before you return your safety razor to your Dome or face to continue shaving make sure its dripping with water. If the shave soap or cream you are using has a great post shave feel and an even better slickness than the extra hydration from the razor for each stroke will increase the post shave feel and slickness. It’s like adding fuel to the fire. Extra hydration is key to a great shave. Adding pre and post prep shaving items that contain natural ingredients that promote hydration can add value to your already exceptional shave.
The Lebelle Shaving Soaps are products with a great post shave feel and slickness that I’m referring to. You really notice the great post shave feel from Lebelle Soaps after your nightly or daily shave is over with. After washing off the extra lather the excessive slickness is still present and in abundance. The left over slickness gives your skin a soft and smooth feeling. Your Dome and face feels comfortable until your next shave with the Lebelle shave soaps. Love your products and you will love the results. Thank you!
