Ultimate Shaving Manual and Guide
Shave in the shower
Shaving should be your final step before exiting the shower. The warm water and steam of a shower softens the hairs and opens your pores.
One of our High end Shaving formulas will form a slick lubricating cushion and allow your razor to glide without scraping. Leave the cream on your face for a minute or so before shaving. This will allow the moisturizers in the formula to penetrate your skin and to further soften the hairs. The Metro Man recommends Amenity Shave Cream, Barc Cutting Up Shave Cream, Davi Reserve Shave Cream, Jack Black Supreme Cream Shave Lather, Ritual The Whip, Sharps Kid Glove Oil-Free Pre-Shave Stick and Urth Shave Formula as we feel they are the best for your shave.
Use a face scrub
A gentle scrubbing will help open pores and raise stubs for the closest shave possible. This exfoliation method removes dead skin cells that can cause acne, ingrown hairs and other facial blemishes. The Metro Man recommends the following products - Amenity Gel Face Cleanser, Jack Black Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser, Jack Black Face Buff Energizing Scrub, Sharps Daily Prep Foaming Scrub, Urth Scrub and Urth Face Wash.
Use a sharp blade
Even High end razors don’t stay sharp forever. The Metro Man recommends that you use a new razor once a week. Doing this ensures that you are getting the closest shave possible without the risk of irritation and ingrown hairs. Using gentle strokes is the best way to get a close shave without damaging your skin. Putting too much pressure on the blades against the skin put premature wear on the blades and because you skin to become enflamed.
Use the proper products
All of our products have been personally tested by The Metro Man to ensure that they are the best possible products for you and your face. We have filtered out any products that contain irritants and inadequate amounts of the ingredients that are necessary for the best possible shave a guy can have. Most over the counter shaving products contain industrial chemicals.
These chemicals are used because they are cheap. These industrial chemicals irritate the skin and cause most of the skin problems that men encounter while shaving, Dry skin, blemishes and acne to name a few. Our products contain the highest quality ingredients in the world. They have been formulated by leading Men’s Dermatologists to moisturize and improve Men’s skin, not to strip and irritate the skin like the others guy’s products.
Post Shave Soothing
After shave skin treatment is one of the most over looked steps when shaving. This step is crucial to protect your skin and add needed moisture to your skin after shaving. This step also helps close pours to lock out any contaminants your skin may encounter through the day. One other benefit this step offers is making your skin feel like a million bucks after you shave. Let’s face it, when you look and feel your best, you perform at your highest level. The Metro Man recommends the following products - Amenity After Shave & Face Moisturizer, Davi Vine Fresh Lotion, Jack Black Double Duty Face Moisturizer, Sharps Daily Prep Oil-Free Lotion and Urth Face Balm.
For Special Occasions
This method is used when you want the closest shave possible. This method can be used for Dates, Job Interviews or any other time you want the closest shave possible. Shave in two steps. First, shave with the grain with very light pressure. Second, reapply a coat of shaving formula and shave against the grain for super close and smooth results. We do not recommend using this method everyday as it puts extra strain on your skin. This method should only be used for special occasions. Don’t forget to use adequate amount of moisturizing after shave after utilizing this method.Happy Shaving!!!!!
