There’s no denying our target audience/frequent readers of BlushPretty are female, but don’t think for a moment we’ve completely forgotten about the guys when it comes to providing tips & advice.

Skincare in particular is a subject that should be researched and addressed equally among the sexes, and to get the men in your life taking a good look at how they take care of their facial hair, we turned to resident hair expert Samantha Wilson for advice.

Sam’s Facial Hair Tips:

  1. Use shaving gel, not foam. Shaving gels are easier to work with and they are more hydrating. They are also more protective than foams.
  2. Go with the grain. Shaving against the growth of the hair can provide a closer shave, but it can also cause ingrown hairs.
  3. Moisturize! Moisturize your skin after shaving. Its helps to keep your skin soft and helps the hairs to grow out easier.
