Face Shaving Tips: Coarse or Tough Beard
Your e-mail has been successfully sent to the recipient.
If you feel discomfort while shaving, it could be because you are not shaving appropriately for the texture of your hair. There’s no need to bully your beard: The following suggestions will help you get a more comfortable shave.
Use a face wash or facial scrub, such as Fusion® ProSeries™ Irritation Defense Soothing Face Wash, to help soften facial hair before you shave. Also, to soften your facial hair and make it easier to cut, hydrate skin with warm water for at least three minutes before shaving.
Fusion ProGlide® Sensitive Shave Gel + Skin Care 2-in-1 defends skin against nicks and cuts while helping soften hair so your razor can comfortably glide for an incredibly close shave.
Use a multiblade shaving system with blades spaced closer together, such as Fusion ProGlide Power Razor with Flexball Technology, to help reduce pressure on each blade for more comfort and less shaving irritation.
Shaving your upper lip and around your mouth at the end of your shave will give the shave gel more time to soak in, further softening your facial hair and making it easier to cut.
Change your blade when you start to experience tugging or discomfort. Certain razors feature an indicator strip that will change to white when you might no longer be getting an optimal shave.
