Kube Studios: The Perfect Shave
Kube Studios are London's premier photography studio. Kube specialise in portfolio shoots and modelling shoots but cater for a wide variety of photography needs. In this post Kube Studios look at the best way to give yourself a wet shave. Men normally prefer wet shaves in the summer as its easier to get a good result when the air temperature is higher. When the skin is cold it goes tight and dries easier which can cause skin to flake after a wet shave. Before you start, wash your face with warm water and dab excess water off with a hot towel before applying a generous layer of shaving foam/gel.
If you do this you're much less likely to nick your skin. Pull the skin tight and go with the grain of the hair. It's a popular misconception that you should shave against the grain. This can give you in growing hair which is quite painful. Try to use as few strokes as possible to avoid over irritating the skin, rinsing the razor in warm water between each stroke. Once you're done, moisturise with a soothing lotion, preferably containing aloe, and avoid traditional alcohol based aftershaves as they can be stingy and dry out the skin.
