4 Reasons To Exfoliate Before Shaving

June 16, 2017 |

What the hell is exfoliation any way?

It’s the process of removing dead cells from the surface of your skin by scrubbing.

Exfoliation is specially essential before shaving. Not every day of course but at least twice a week. That’s because –

1. Exfoliation unclogs pores

For a smooth shave, it’s essential that your pores are unclogged. Your razor then glides smoothly on your body. Exfoliation lifts up your hair by exposing hair follicles.

2. Exfoliation prevents ingrown hair

Exfoliation roots out any ingrown hair from previous shave. This aids your current shaving. It softens and tones your skin. This disrupts the build-up of dead skin and hence preventing ingrown hair.

3. Exfoliation Removes dirt

Imagine tiny particles of dirt getting inside your razor. That would result in a rough shave. Use a scrub to remove this dirt and get a great shave.

4. Exfoliation Repairs skin

Before shaving, exfoliation unclogs pores and rejuvenates your skin cells. This coupled with a smooth shave results in you looking younger, fresher.
