The Gillette “Close Shave. Zero Redness” Challenge campaign launched recently, is to educate men that redness is not an inevitable consequence of a close shave and can be avoided by using the right razors. The blades of Gillette MACH3 are developed to reduce pressure on the skin and result in a clean, close shave in a single stroke, reducing the cause of shaving irritation and redness. Gillette MACH3 razor combines shaving technologies that work together as a manual system to deliver a close, comfortable shave.

FIVE STEPS TO THE PERFECT SHAVE

 1. Soak Before You Shave

Beard hair is about as tough as copper wire; soften it by washing your face and neck with warm water and a mild soap, removing natural oils and perspiration that inhibit water penetration. After approximately three minutes of soaking, your beard hair will be optimally softened; in fact, the force required to cut beard hair is reduced by almost 70 percent after only two minutes.

 2. Apply Plenty Of Shave Gel

Although water is an essential softening agent, it evaporates quickly. Shaving cream or gel moisturises and softens beard hair, creating a protective layer of lubrication to maximise razor glide.

 3. Use Light, Gentle Strokes

Use light, gentle strokes whether shaving with or against whisker growth. For ultimate comfort, use Gillette MACH3 razors.  The blades of Gillette MACH3 are developed to reduce pressure on the skin and result in a clean, close shave in a single stroke, reducing the cause of shaving irritation and redness.

 4. Shave Tricky Spots Last

The toughest hairs grow on the chin and around the lips. Save these areas for last as more time soaking in shave gel will soften them further.

 5. After Shaving, Rinse Your Face With Cool Water And Pat Dry

At the end of every shave, rinse your face and neck with cool water to close pores and soothe freshly exfoliated skin. Pat dry. Rinse your razor thoroughly and shake off excess water before storing. Do not wipe the blades, as this can damage the fine shaving surface.

GROOMING TIPS

Here are definitive responses to the most common shaving related questions.

Q: Is it better to use hot, cold or warm water to shave?

A: Warm water is best for hydrating beard hair. Soaking in warm water softens hair and causes it to expand, making it 70 percent easier to cut.

Q: What is the difference between shaving with shave gel and with soap and water?

A: Shave gel tends to be less drying than ordinary soap and water and won’t clog your razor the way soap can. Shave gels help retain skin moisture, making hairs easier to cut.

Q: What is the best way to avoid razor burn?

A: If the skin is not properly prepared before shaving or if the blade on your razor is dull, you are more likely to end up with razor burn. Make sure to hydrate hair in warm water for three minutes and apply plenty of shave gel. Also, be sure to change the blade on your razor at the first sign of dullness or discomfort.

Q: Is it okay to let my girlfriend or wife borrow my razor?

A: It’s not a good idea to share your razor with your partner. Women have a much larger area to shave and you may fi nd that after only a few shaves, your blade has dulled considerably, increasing the likelihood of nicks and cuts. Tell her to try a razor specifically designed for the way a woman shaves.

Q: Does shaving make your hair grow back thicker?

A: Scientists at Gillette have conducted extensive testing on the effects shaving has on both male and female hair growth, texture and color. This testing has proven that shaving does not affect hair growth, color or texture. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape of the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. But if hair is left to re-grow completely, it will return to its former state.

Q: In what direction should I shave to achieve the best shave?

A: Men’s facial hair tends to grow in different directions. Most men find using light, gentle strokes and shaving in the direction of whisker growth provides the closest, smoothest shave possible.

Q: How do I avoid nicks and cuts, particularly above my upper lip?

A: The area above the upper lip is tricky for many men. Always leave it for last. Apply plenty of shave gel and allow this area to soak up as much lather as possible. Shave slowly and don’t apply too much pressure.

  8. I like this brand. Gillette has been producing excellent razors for years, very close and smooth, and with very little irritation too! However, I have to be careful when I am shaving, and not get carried away or else may loose all my Kitty whiskers and hair!
