Suffer from sensitive skin? Here’s 3 ways you should be shaving

Let’s help you with your sensitive skin. We live in cities where the air is as clean as the ground and our skin soaks it in. Though our barbershop in central New York is a haven of hygiene and cleanliness, we can’t change the environment around us. The stores are packed with products which look friendly but are foes, conjured up in labs with chemicals. Here are 3 ways to help if you have sensitive skin.

3 Ways To Help People With Sensitive Skin

Buy a facial scrub with natural ingredients and apply it to your facial hair to soften. Hydrate the skin with lukewarm water for at least 2 minutes. The softer your facial hair is, the easier it is to cut with minimal fuss, friction and irritation. Of course, we recommend you to use our very own Pall Mall Barbers pre-shave scrub. Packed with cocoa butter and shea butter, it helps to lubricate and soothe the skin, whilst leaving a soft and supple finish on the skin. Ideal for sensitive skin, our pre-shave scrub will help you get a smoother and closer shave.

You also should hydrate skin with warm water for at least three minutes to further soften your facial hair and make it easier to shave. Nicks and cuts to your skin which can add fuel to an inflamed dermis, are eliminated if you take this ‘softly, softly’ approach.

Apply a non-drying dermatologist-tested shaving cream to double the protection, depending on how sensitive your skin really is. Before you go ahead and begin the barbering process (assuming you’re doing it yourself of course), ensure that your blades are sharp and not dulled through overuse. Check out how to use our Pall Mall Barbers shaving cream here. With its soothing elements, our shaving cream can be used on all skin types, even sensitive skin. The soft fragrance of sandalwood and clove helps to give a luxurious added scent on the skin that will last all day.
