How To Perfect Your Shaving Routine

Whether it’s a silky clean shave, rugged stubble tracing a dark shadow around the jawline or a luxuriant full beard that is his pride and joy, a well-groomed face is a man’s crowning glory. The style of beard or moustache you choose is an expression of personality, and it can be cultivated and shaped to reflect your individual style. Shaving is an important part of your daily routine, but that certainly shouldn't make it mundane. Treating shaving as a ritual and taking the time to care appropriately for your face will result in a more beautiful beard, as well as keep the bare skin around it feeling sumptuously nourished. Follow this routine every time you shave to give your facial hair the respect it deserves.

STEP 1: PREP YOUR SKIN

While you shower, or once you step out, wash your face with Cade Daily Exfoliating Cleanser. Enriched with organic cade wood and rosemary essential oils to clean the skin, and chestnut and almond shell particles to remove dead cells, this skincare product leaves your skin purified and ready to shave.

STEP 2: SMOOTH ON SOME SHAVING PRODUCT

Next, lather up with a shaving emollient like our Cade Shaving Cream. These products instantly transform into a creamy foam to help the razor glide across your hair for a smooth shave.  Instead of simply using your fingers to apply it, we recommend using a shaving brush to add refinement to your skincare routine. The bristles whip gel into a cloud-like foam and also exfoliate your skin.

STEP 3: GO WITH THE GRAIN

When it's time to shave, turn your razor so that you're always moving with the grain, it reduces irritation to the skin so your face will be left silky with no razor bumps. Every man's facial hair grows differently, and being familiar with the quirks of your face will make shaving a much smoother experience. Take a moment to do this pre-shave by gently stroking your beard.

STEP 4: FINISH WITH HYDRATION

Once you're happy with your shave, finish with a cold water rinse. Not only providing a bracing start to the day, each splash of icy water helps to close your pores against everyday pollution. Pat dry with a clean flannel or towel and finish your routine by rubbing a coin-sized dollop of moisturizing Cade After Shave Balm into your freshly shaved jawline.
