the perfect shave
Are you satisfied with the way you shave? Most men believe they shave properly but the overwhelming evidence proves otherwise. Only few men do justice to this daily chore leading to a high incidence of cuts, bumps, razor burn and blotchy skin. The details for a perfect shave enjoy universal agreement:
Do you shave your head? If so the unique revolutionary Headblade system is a must for you. This is the only specially designed razor for shaving the head.
The male skin has certain unique properties attributable to the male hormone, Testosterone. At 2mm, it is about 0.5mm thicker than the female skin on average. It is also more acidic and produces more collagen and sebum. Daily shaving inflicts significant trauma to the skin leaving it vulnerable to the stresses of modern life and environmental insult. Daily facial care is therefore of utmost importance for men. For best results:
Your skin type is the first step in determining suitable skincare products. The skin is a living organ, prone to environmental changes and in a constant state of change and regeneration. You may therefore go through phases of different skin types. The common common types are:
normal skin With no signs of oily or dry areas, the skin is soft and smooth with good elasticity and firmness. The skin pores are small to medium sized. Use products that maintain hydration and water-based moisturisers.
oily skin With larger pores, oily skin is more coarse in texture and is the most prone to pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. By attracting more dirt, oily skin should be washed several times a day using a light facial wash and warm water. Use a water-based moisturiser afterwards.
dry skin Dry skin is flaky and feels tight because of inadequate oil secretion. Wash once or twice a day with a creamy facial cleanser or facial wash with warm water. Use a moisturiser afterwards and avoid alcohol-based products that tend to dry out the skin.
combination skin The most common type is to have normal or dry skin on the cheeks and around the eyes and oily skin on the so called 'T-Zone'(the area from the forehead extending down the nose and chin). Other combinations are less common. It is important to use balanced skincare products eg those containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) or a combination of products suitable for the dry/normal skin and oil-absorbing products on the T-Zone.
sensitive skin Sensitive skin is prone to damage from environmental factors (wind, sun and cold weather). The skin is often red and blotchy and allergy to cosmetics is common. Use fragrance-free facial wash and moisturisers. Skin exfoliants are best avoided.
