Shaving tips: Acne-prone skin

Provided by

The following tips will help you get your best shave, no matter what shape your skin is in.

Tip 1: Wash and hydrate your face and neck before shaving. A face wash or facial scrub will warm, deep clean and help soften facial hair before you shave. You also should hydrate skin with warm water for at least three minutes to soften your facial hair and make it easier to cut.

Tip 2: Choose a shave gel designed to remove dirt and oil, such as Fusion® Hydra Gel Hydra Smooth Shave Gel.

Tip 3: Go easy — use light, gentle strokes when shaving. This is especially important for areas of your skin that are broken out. The razor should do the work, not you.

Tip 4: Apply a light, post-shave moisturizer, such as Gillette® Series Sensitive Skin Aftershave Lotion, after you shave. This will help ensure that your skin does not overcompensate for dryness by producing more oil.

Tip 5: Wash your face at night with a soap-free scrub to remove the daily buildup of oil.

Tips for shaving sensitive skin

Provided by

If you experience razor burn or nicks and cuts when shaving, read on to see tips for shaving sensitive skin, and start enjoying a smoother, more comfortable shave.

Properly Prepare Your Skin
Use a face wash or facial scrub to help soften facial hair before you shave. You also should hydrate skin with warm water for at least three minutes to further soften your facial hair and make it easier to cut.

Start With the Right Tools
Use a nondrying, dermatologist-tested shave gel, such as Fusion ProGlide® Sensitive Shave Gel + Skin Care 2-in-1, to soften hair and help defend your skin against nicks and cuts. Also, use an advanced multi-blade razor that has blades spaced closer together, such as Fusion ProGlide Power Razor with FlexBall Technology, to help reduce pressure on each blade for more comfort and less irritation.

Check Your Blades
Dull blades can lead to nicks and irritation. Change your blade when you experience tugging or discomfort. Or try a razor that features an indicator strip that will fade to white when you might no longer be getting an optimal shave.

Use Good Technique
Shave with light, gentle strokes. Your razor should do the work, not you. Start shaving with the grain (in the direction of hair growth). Then if necessary, go against the grain for an even closer shave.

Save the Best for Last
Shaving your upper lip and around your mouth at the end of your shave will give the shave gel more time to soak in, further softening your facial hair and making it easier to cut. Also, a single blade is really useful for shaving the tricky places, such as under your nose.

Rinse Your Blade Frequently
Rinsing the blade often throughout your shave prevents buildup on the blade edges and cartridge, and will result in better glide and more comfort.

Protect Your Face and Neck
After shaving, rinse skin with cool water and pat it dry. Then use a hydrating aftershave lotion, such as Gillette® Series Sensitive Skin Aftershave Lotion, to cool and moisturize your skin.

5 reasons you need shave gel

Provided by
Gillette Venus

Our skin is our largest organ, and we go to great lengths to protect it. But if you’re skipping shave gel in the shower, you’re not doing all you can to care for your skin. An amazing shave gel can be the difference between so-so skin and show-off skin.

1) Protect Your Skin
Using shave gels is a great way to shield your delicate skin. Shave gels create a luxurious layer between the blade and your skin, allowing razors to glide with ease and protecting you from nicks, cuts and razor burn. Our rich shave gels produce a cushion effect that soap and water alone cannot replicate. So wear that sassy skirt or short shorts with the confidence that your legs are flawless.

2) Soft Leads to Smooth
It’s vital to soften skin and hair before you shave. But before you reach for the soap, consider this: Soap cleanses skin, removing dirt and essential oils, leaving your skin dry and vulnerable. Water softens skin but evaporates too quickly to be effective. Our ultra-creamy shave gels reduce water evaporation from the skin and keep hair hydrated, ensuring an incredibly comfortable shave.

3) Forget the Guessing Game
If you shave with soap and water, it’s hard to keep track of where your razor has passed. Shave gel makes it easy to see where the blades have already shaved, so you can stop shaving the same spot over and over again (something that can irritate the skin — fast).

4) Help Protect Skin From Moisture Loss While Shaving
One of the best and most important benefits of a shaving product is helping protect the skin against moisture loss while shaving. Soap and water can dry out your skin. Gillette Venus’ best shave gel lineup — Venus with Touch of Olay Vanilla Cashmere, Venus with Touch of Olay Sugarberry Bliss and Venus with Touch of Olay Violet Swirl —provides 5x more moisturizers than bar soap. We bet you won’t be able to stop touching your silky skin (and neither will that special someone; double bonus).

5) A Match for Your Skin Type
Your skin is as unique as your personality, and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all shave gel solution. That’s why it’s important to find the shave gel that’s perfect for you. Gillette Venus considers all skin types — from sensitive skin to dry skin — when developing our shave gel formulas. So, no matter your skin type, Gillette Venus has the shave gel formula that’s a perfect match for you.

Secrets to smooth

Provided by
Gillette Venus

Silky skin is simple when you follow these hair-removal basics.

1. Shave Gel: A Smooth Beauty Must
Along with a Venus razor, shave gel is the secret to a smooth shave. It contains lubricants, which help the razor glide over your skin. Want a comfortable shave? Satin Care shave gel lubricates to provide a cushion of protection as you shave.

2. One Razor, Head to Toe
Keep your shaving routine simple with a single razor. Just remember that underarm hair and bikini area hair grow in different directions. In those areas, try shaving from all three angles — up, down and sideways — for a smooth shave.

3. Removing Facial Hair
While there's technically nothing wrong with shaving facial hair (guys do it all the time!), most women prefer methods that allow for more control when it comes to hair removal for eyebrows and upper lip — like waxing, tweezing and depilatories.

4. The Scoop on Other Hair-Removal Methods
When it comes to the task of hair removal, the options are numerous. Here are a few:

  • Waxing: Long-lasting (but can be messy) and, on some women, may leave skin irritated — ouch!

  • Electric (dry) shaving: Easy to do at home, but may not give as smooth a shave as wet shaving, and razor maintenance is critical.

  • Depilatories: Fast and easy, but tend to have an unpleasant odor and can potentially irritate skin.

  • Epilators: Stubble required — long-lasting results may vary.

  • Electrolysis: Permanent hair removal has a hefty price tag requiring a skilled professional.

  • Wet shaving: Inexpensive, convenient, quick and safe with a quality razor.

5. Smooth Sailing: Navigating the Tough Spots
We’ve all done it — nicked a knee or ankle while shaving. The secret to getting a close shave in those tricky spots? First, choose a high-quality women’s razor, designed especially for your curves — like the Venus Embrace razor. Once you’ve chosen your razor, let these areas soak up as much shave gel as possible. Take it slowly, using short strokes, and don’t put too much pressure on your razor for an ouch-free, smooth shave.

6. Say No to Nicks & Cuts
Many of these discomforts are caused by old, dull blades or slippage. Using a premium razor like the Venus Embrace women's razor with its SoftGrip handle and five blades for outstanding closeness can help prevent nicks and cuts, and give you a close shave. While shaving, remember to use vertical strokes rather than horizontal. And for balance, try putting your foot on an edge of the tub with a washcloth underneath. It will help you stand your ground while shaving.

7. You Choose: Refillable vs. Disposable
A refillable Venus razor lets you try out all of the different blades Venus has to offer. Venus Refillable razors also provide a comfortable SoftGrip handle that really lasts — great for the eco-conscious shaver. On the other hand, Venus Disposable razors offer use-and-toss convenience for a fresh razor blade in an instant.

8. Best of the Best: The 5-Blade Advantage
The more blades, the more hairs get cut. And, of course, that means a smooth shave. The Venus Embrace razor is the first women’s shaving system to feature five blades that individually adjust to your natural curves. Want soft and satiny smooth skin? Check out Venus with a Touch of Olay Violet Swirl shave gel for an amazingly comfortable shave you’ll love.

9. Shave to the Knee — or Above?
This is a personal choice. Shaving does not make hair grow back thicker, darker or faster, but it will grow back, so you’ll need to keep shaving your thighs once you start to keep them smooth. Think about what feels right for you and your beauty routine.

10. Blade-Changing Basics
While there's no set rule, you should replace razor blades at the first sign of dullness or discomfort. For most women this is after about 5–10 shaves. Venus razors have interchangeable razor blade refills that fit all Venus razor handles, so you can even try a different type of blade on your current Venus razor.

11. Workout Buddy: Shaving at the Gym
You spend countless hours working your quads and calves, so finish off refining your best assets with an ultra-sexy and smooth shave. Slip a Venus Breeze razor, the 2-in-1 ultra-convenient women’s razor with built-in shave gel bars, into your gym bag. It’s a quick and easy solution to show off your beautiful legs after a hard workout and get heads turning.
