Shaving foam. How to choose a good product
Shaving is one of the most important and regular male procedures. It is very important to choose the right product that will not allow irritation of the skin and will make the shaving procedure as quick and comfortable as possible.
Shaving Foam: a variety of products
To choose a suitable product for shaving, you need to navigate in all types of products sold, to know their main advantages and disadvantages. Most often you can find three types of products that will help to shave quickly.
- Gel - the most economical shave. Prices for gels, as a rule, are low. The product has a transparent gel structure, which foams strongly on contact with water. For one shaving session, a small pea gel is enough. Before you apply the gel directly on the skin, you need to rub it in your hands before the formation of foam. The gel is perfect for men who have coarse bristles and sensitive skin. This tool is distributed on the skin a little longer than, for example, shaving foam.
- Cream. It is considered one of the cheapest shaving products.The cream is easy enough to apply to the skin, but you need to have a special brush. The use of cream is often the cause of cuts, because the razor does not slide well enough due to the specific consistency of the product. Today, shaving creams are inferior to more modern and practical means.
- Shaving foam is the most common product of shaving today. This tool is applied to the skin as quickly as possible, and it does not need to be pre-foamed. The foam has a soft texture that allows the blade to slide over the skin smoothly and without obstruction. Thus, it is possible to avoid cuts and remove even the shortest hairs. Foams are sold in bottles with a convenient dispenser. This allows one light touch to get a single portion of ready-to-use foam.
Choosing foam for sensitive skin
Male remedies, unlike feminine ones, are not divided according to skin type. On the shelves of stores you can only find options for sensitive skin, which very carefully treat the skin of the face and help prevent redness and flaking after the shaving procedure.
Correctly selected shaving foam will help to eliminate all existing problems of sensitive skin. The price of the product is practically no different from the cost of the funds for the usual skin type.
The average cost of Gillette shaving foam is 350 rubles. Funds from the popular company Nivea will cost a bit cheaper - around 250 rubles per 200 milliliters of product. These companies have established themselves as really good manufacturers of quality products for shaving.
If you have sensitive, thin or irritated skin, choose a foam that contains aloe vera. This remedy effectively soothes broken skin and quickly heals small cuts.
The components of the foam. How to choose a quality product?
Before choosing any skin care product, you should pay attention to its composition. At the beginning of the list of components are the components that the tool most.
Rhodiola extract and glycerin are two ingredients that a good shaving foam should have. Reviews of such products say about high quality, because these two components eliminate dryness and prevent the appearance of redness. The presence of aloe vera is welcome.
It is important to note that shaving foam, which is composed of a component such as propylene glycol, can greatly harm your skin. It can cause severe redness, itching and tearing of the eyes.
Foam packaged in cylinders. Such packaging is always metal, made of special stainless components. A dispenser is provided on top of the cylinder. Choose a size that fits comfortably in your hand. Never buy product in damaged packaging.
