New Year. New Shave.
The start of the year is a great time for a new look. And a fresh shaving ritual could be the perfect way to bring your grooming routine into 2019.
The holiday season is over. And after weeks of lying on the couch and letting your grooming routine become an afterthought, it’s time to take charge. No more three-day stubble. No more mindlessly running your ancient shaver over your face when (and if) you remember. It’s time to get sharp. It’s time to make a shaving resolution to keep your look sleek all year long. But a smooth new look requires a great technique along with a premium shaver. We have brought together some of our favourite shaving tips and shavers to bring your look into 2019.
An old dull razor and cold, dry skin. That’s a recipe for a nasty rash and probably a cut or two in the process. If you want to achieve a super-smooth shave, then you need to put the groundwork in. This means first gently warming your skin to open up pores and prevent in-grown hairs. Use a clean, warm flannel to gently heat your face and gently exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and any minute dirt or grime. You should also choose a more intense exfoliating product once or twice a week to keep skin really fresh. Then (if you’re choosing a wet shave) apply a layer of moisturising shaving gel. Gel is better at keeping hold of moisture than cream or soap and will keep your skin better hydrated. This will allow your razor or shaver to glide smoothly over skin.
The Panasonic ES-LT2N Rechargeable Shaver is perfect for sensitive skin, using an ultra-flexible head to get to those hard to reach angles without tugging. With a three-blade cutting system, designed using Japanese craftsmanship techniques, and a shaving sensor to adjust shaving power to beard density, it really is one of the smartest shavers around.
Choose a Superstar Shaver
No matter how well you prepare, a razor or shaver that has seen better days will always let you down. At best providing you with an uneven shave and at worst leaving you with a nasty cut. Never settle for second best when you choose your shaver. These are two of our favourites from the Panasonic store:
Panasonic ES-LV6Q 5-Blade Men’s Shaver
If you’re looking for something with a little more power then it has to be the Panasonic ES-LV6Q 5-Blade Men’s Shaver, with an ultra-fast 14,000 CPM motor that makes it the fastest and most powerful in the world. Combined with an impressive five-blade cutting system and ultra-flexible 5D head, it provides an ultra-close and smooth shave that you won’t find anywhere else.
Design a Personalised Look
The great thing about your facial hair is that you can create a look that reflects your unique style personality. From classically clean shaven to more adventurous and intricate styles through to a full beard. You’re in control. You can even have a little fun trying out new looks. Explore online tutorials and images to decide on a look that you want to recreate at home.
Create Exceptional Precision
If you prefer a fuller look when it comes to your facial hair, then you need a little help keeping things under control. It’s all too easy to go from on-trend beard or designer stubble to out of control facial fuzz. Make sure you use the right shaver to create all the right angles, from shaping your sideburns to cleaning up your beard line. The powerful Panasonic ES-LL21 3-Blade Shaver has a linear motor that delivers premium cutting performance on even the thickest of beards. An acute cutting surface set at exactly thirty degrees means that the ES-LL21 can cut through dense whiskers, while the pop-up trimmer is perfect for sculpting sideburns and shaping your beard. Tackle even the heaviest of beards without any fuss with this high-performance shaver.
Don’t Forget Aftercare
Just because you have stopped cutting doesn’t mean the job is done. Aftercare is just as important as the shaving process itself if you want to keep things looking smooth. A high-quality moisturiser should always be part of your grooming kit. Choose a product that is suited to your particular skin type and avoided scented lotions if your skin is sensitive or prone to redness after shaving. If you have a beard or moustache to keep looking sharp, then a premium beard oil is a great way to add scent and shine. And you should always comb any facial hair to keep it looking neat and sleek. Remember to check your eyebrows, sideburns and any other stray hairs, a few whiskers out of place can undermine any look you are trying to create.
