1. Hydration. Shaving cream helps to keep moisture in the beard hairs during the shave, leaving them softer and easier to cut. When less force is needed to cut each hair, your shave can be more comfortable.
2. Lubrication. Shaving cream creates a thin layer of protection between the blade and the skin, ensuring less friction and minimizing the risk of redness, razor burn, and irritation – and fewer nicks and cuts.
3. Tracking. It’s so intuitive, we may not realize it, but the act of removing shaving cream as you shave helps you keep track of where you’ve already run your blade. This will help to ensure that you don’t miss a spot.
4. Soothing and refreshing. Using a shaving cream will help leave your skin feeling soothed and refreshed afterwards.
