The key to getting a close, luxurious shave is all in the prep. The simple step of adding pre-shave oil to your shaving routine will upgrade your shave in a whole new way. Read on to learn How to Use Pre-Shave Oil.
Why Use Pre-Shave Oil?
There are a variety of benefits to using pre-shave oil (we have a full blog post about it!), including:• Adds an extra layer of lubrication to your skin
This step is pretty simple – using your hands or a face cloth, wet your face with warm water to open up your pores and allow for a closer shave.
2. Add a few drops of Pre-Shave oil to the palm of your hand.
Remove the cap of your pre-shave oil and put a few drops in the palm of your hand. As you use pre-shave oil, you’ll start to learn the perfect amount for your own shave.
3.Gently massage the pre-shave oil into your skin
Some like to rub their hands together to spread the oil around first, which you can do! Then gently massage the oil into your beard or stubble bristles, working it down into your skin.
4. Wait a 2-4 seconds.
Let the pre-shave oil sit on your skin for a few seconds to allow it time to settle.
5. Apply your shaving cream as you normally would.
You can use the same scent as your pre-shave oil, or choose a complimentary scent to mix and match. If you’re new to shaving, be sure to check out our post on How to Shave without a Shaving Brush.
6. Enjoy your shave.
