A bath is the best time to shave - How to have a blissful bath time shave

A bath at the end of the day is a blissful time.

A warm bathtub not only has a relaxing effect, but also improves blood flow. This time, we will introduce ``bathtime shaving'', which is perfect for today's lifestyle where telework has increased.

The beard grows in the morning. Is there much difference whether you shave in the morning or at night?

In fact, beards grow the most in the morning, between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. Even if you shave at night, you'll already have a thin beard the next morning! This rarely happens, and by shaving your beard carefully and properly at night, you can stay refreshed the next morning.

Shaving is often done in a hurry after waking up in the morning and rushing to work, but when you go to bath time, you will find that the comfortable temperature and humidity are good for your skin condition. It's also a good idea to do this before a holiday to give yourself a little pampering.

First, warm up your mind and beard in the bath.

As usual, I rinsed my whole body and soaked in the bathtub. The comfort of the warmth of the hot water can make you say, "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa". At that time, please soak the area to be shaved in the bathtub as well. If this is difficult, you can sprinkle hot water on your face. It is important to soak your beard with warm water.
When your beard absorbs water, it expands and becomes easier to shave. Moreover, warmer temperatures are more effective.

For this reason, at a barber's salon, you shave by applying a steaming towel or filling a shaving mug with boiling water to warm the brush and lather. If you have a bathroom with high humidity, there is no need for such preparation. It can be said that it is the most luxurious environment for shaving.

Whip and brush to create lather on your face

When you get out of the bath and face the mirror, use a shaving brush (beard brush) to create a lather. Apply soap to the tips of the brush bristles and brush in slow circular motions, imagining that you are lathering the soap onto your face. Brushing also has the effect of scraping out dirt deep in the pores with the tips of the bristles, so it is also recommended to wash your entire face at the same time. The fine whipped cream-like foam not only provides comfort, but also acts as a lubricant to help the razor slide.

*Please also refer to the page on how to use the shaving brush.

Checking the condition of your skin and beard

Once the foam has formed, use the razor to shave from the top of your cheeks to under your chin. The order of forward shaving and reverse shaving is the same as regular shaving. For detailed instructions, please also refer to the basic explanation page for wet shaving.

Now that you're all done, it's bath time, so take your time and check out how your beard grows while stroking it with your hands. Hair style is also different for each person. It might be a good idea to take a closer look in the mirror. As you shave while feeling and understanding the texture and condition of your skin, you will be able to get a close shave with ease.

Don't forget to take care of your aftershave

After shaving, thoroughly remove the soap with warm water. Then, after you get out of the bath, cover your flushed skin from bathing and shaving with a towel wrung out with cold water to tighten your pores and reduce the flushing.

After that, it's a good idea to protect your skin from dryness with an aftershave lotion in the summer, or an aftershave gel or a moisturizing lotion in the winter.

Aftershave lotions are popular during the summer, but the alcohol-based type also has antibacterial properties. For those with sensitive skin, it can be painful and cause skin irritation. In that case, it would be best to choose an alcohol-free type.

Why not shave your beard with a traditional razor for the ultimate bliss that follows after a relaxing bath?
