  SHAVING

PRE SHAVE TIPS:

Shave after your shower, or apply a hot washcloth to your beard for approx. 30 seconds. Steam softens facial hair making it easier to shave. Cleanse skin with a combination of Face Wash and Facial Scrub. Scrubs contain granules that slough away dead skin, lifting facial hairs, resulting in a smoother shave and fewer ingrown hairs.

 

SHAVING TIPS:

Technique:Use short strokes and a sharp blade (maximum 5 shaves per cartridge). Rinse blade often under hot water to keep blade sharp.

Application:The use of a badger hair shave brush will evenly disperse the cream and lift facial hair.Allow Super Close Shave Formula to sit on the skin for 30 seconds. Shave difficult areas last, permitting the cream to soften the hair longer.

Razor bumps and burn:Shave in the direction of the hair growth only. While this may not offer the closest shave, it does provide the least amount of irritation.

"Razor Bumps" - For fast relief and prevention from outbreaks. - dab a pea-sized amount of Razor Bump Relief on the affected area. (see directions on package)


POST SHAVE TIPS:

  • Follow with a splash of cold water to close the pores.
  • Finish by applying a light application of soothing after shave balm.
  • "Razor Bumps" - For fast relief and prevention from outbreaks. - dab a pea-sized amount of Razor Bump Relief on the affected area. (see directions on package)

 
CLEANSING

Shower in warm (not hot) water with non-drying Invigorating Body Wash or Vitamin EDA Cleansing Bars. Wash facial skin with fragrance free Face Wash, non-drying and gentle, formulated for all skin types. Hot water and harsh soaps dry out your skin. Dehydrated skin produces excess oil resulting in irritation and breakouts. Ideal for normal-oily skin types: apply Herbal Mint Toner to cleansed skin to remove excess dirt and oil, banishing shine, leaving skin refreshed with a matte finish.

 
HAIR

Daily Protein Shampoo and Moisturizing Conditioner protects against scalp build up caused by styling products, environmental pollutants and toxins such as DHT. Finish by applying a light to medium application of Pomade. Light applications provide style and direction, while a heavier application provides more hold. Applying pomade to dry hair helps achieve a more matte finish, while applying to wet hair will give you more of a semi-wet look.

 
WEEKLY TREATMENTS

Exfoliation:Gently work a small amount of Facial Scrub on your face, using small, upward circular motions. Stimulates cell renewal and revitalizes complexion.

Clay Mask:Apply a thin layer of Clarifying Clay Mask to cleansed facial skin; let it dry (approx. 10 min) and rinse clean. Tightens, tones and clarifies as it dissolves dead cells.

 

* Facial scrubs and clay masks keep the pores clear of the material that forms blemishes and black heads

* Never use a facial scrub if you have moderate to severe acne. This process may aggravate the condition.

Keeping your skin well hydrated is not only healthy, but will prolong your skins elasticity and help combat the skin"s aging process. Apply moisturizers sparingly, some skin types may require more than others. Start with a light application gradually adding more until skin feels comfortable.

Don't forget the lips - Dry flaky lips are the result of lost moisture. Drink plenty of water and use a Hydro Salve lip balm to keep hydrated.


Why use under eye cream?
Eyes are the first area of a man"s face to show signs of aging. Under eye skin is extremely delicate. As you age, it gets thinner and more susceptible to wrinkles. Using your fingertip, apply small dabs of Under Eye Complex to the soft tissue that surrounds the eye. Do not rub in, pat with fingertips.

 

What is Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)?
Night Cream AHA's active ingredient contains fruit acids (Glycolic Acid "AHA") designed to slowly exfoliate the top layers of the skin minimizing fine lines and restoring skins elasticity.

 

Why is SPF so important?
Exposure to the sun's damaging UV rays is one of the leading causes of premature skin aging and also puts you at a higher risk of developing skin cancer, hyper pigmentation and broken capillaries.
