SASA’S BEAUTY TIPS: Simple shaving tips for men and women

Simple shaving tips for men and women

Posted by Jacquie Carter, beauty expert

Shaving tips for men and women | Herbalife Beauty AdviceWith so many options for hair removal these days, here’s a guide to an original method of hair removal: shaving!

There are so many hair removal options, including waxing, threading, or permanent hair removal techniques. However, shaving is still a tried and true way to get rid of unwanted hair. Shaving is a topic of beauty that affects both men and women, though shaving needs between genders differ. So, I’m going to go through some ways you can get the best shave possible, whether it’s on your face or body.

Shaving tips for men:

Although there is nothing wrong with a rugged look or five o’clock shadow, sometimes a well-groomed, close shave is required.  I have nothing against beards either but a clean shave is always in style! Men have thicker skin on their face than women, so their shaving needs will, in turn, be different than women. Here are some shaving tips to help you get a clean, nick-free shave:

Shaving tip for men 1: Shave during or after showering

Warm water and steam from showers can soften your skin, making it ready for shaving. Shaving on dry skin puts you at risk for razor burn and nicks because your skin isn’t as susceptible to a blade. Plus, if you’re already in the shower, it’s also a great timesaver. Make sure you look out for a mist-free shower mirror!

Shaving tip for men 2: Swipe and rinse

It might take more effort to rinse your blade with each swipe, but your skin will thank you for it! Make sure to wash away debris on your blade after each stroke. You will get a cleaner shave and transfer less debris on your face with each stroke.

Shaving tip for men 3: Shave in the direction of hair growth

Shaving against the grain could give you a cleaner shave, but it could also result in more stubble and razor burn. You should always shave in the direction of hair growth on the face and neck to avoid shaving bumps. The skin on your neck is thinner than the skin on your face, so it’s especially important to pay attention to hair patterns when shaving on the neck to avoid getting bumps and razor burn.

Shaving tip for men 4: Moisturize after shaving

There are differing opinions on traditional aftershaves in the beauty industry, but most experts agree that a moisturizing gel or lotion will benefit men’s skin after shaving. And the last, step—don’t forget to wear an SPF!

Shaving tips for women:

Some of the same rules of shaving mentioned above apply to women too. These include making sure your skin is wet before shaving, moisturizing after shaving and rinsing your blade after each swipe. But, we all know ladies are special, so here are some more shaving tips that are a little more specific to women:

Shaving tip for women 1: Shave in various angles

For men, it’s recommended to shave the hair on their face in the direction of hair growth. However, if you’re shaving a body area, such as your legs, you will get a cleaner shave if you try various angles (in this case, from your ankles up).  The skin on your body is different to the skin on your face and won’t necessary get razor burn if you use a good blade.

Shaving tip for women 2: Find your best razor

Much like finding a personalized beauty routine, a particular razor may work better for you than others. Experiment with different razors to see which one works best for your needs. Make sure to always stick to razors designed for women because men have a different skin texture so blades for men are generally designed for their skin.  Make sure to change out your cartridge when your razor gets dull; and never share razors with anyone, it can be very unhygienic!

Shaving tip for women 3: Exfoliate

Many people assume that shaving is a form of exfoliating your skin, but it’s not. Regularly exfoliating the skin on your body with a scrub can help prevent ingrown hairs (when your hair grows in a direction towards your skin). An added benefit: exfoliating the skin on your body will also keep your skin soft!

Do you have any shaving tips that you use? I’d love to hear about them in the comments section. Happy shaving, everyone!

SASA’S BEAUTY TIPS: 6 Skin care tips to help dry skin

6 Skin care tips to help dry skin

by Jacquie Carter, beauty expert

6 Skin care tips to help dry skinDo you have dry skin?  Do the words itchy, scratchy, tight and sensitive pop into your mind?  Dry skin doesn’t just occur in the wintertime.  It can stick with you 12 months out of the year! There are definitely some simple tips we can all follow to help alleviate the discomfort and the appearance of dry skin.

Sometimes it feels like no matter what I do, when I look in the mirror I just look dried out and older then I really am. On a deeper note, it’s not just about looks, it’s also about how it feels when my skin is dry. I’m not sure if having dry skin is worse than having oily skin or vice versa—on average, people with dry skin tend have less blemishes and breakouts than someone with oily skin.  But, we do tend to look a little bit older when our skin is dry. People who have oily skin tend to look a bit younger but, unfortunately, can suffer from more blemishes and breakouts. You know the old expression: the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence?  Well, I think this expression applies when it comes to our skin type.

Sometimes dry skin can be a bit disheartening.  I put together some tips that have definitely worked for me over the years.

Dry skin tip 1: Say no to hot water

I’m the first to admit that there’s nothing better than a hot, steamy shower or bath. However, while the rest of the body feels great, my skin suffers under the heat. Hot water can strip your body of its natural oils that act as a barrier on our skin. This barrier is super important because it helps to trap that much needed moisture which keeps our skin hydrated, soft and smooth. If you can, avoid a hot shower and take a nice warm one instead. And while we all love to linger in the tub, it’s best to get in and out quickly to avoid the drying of our skin. Limit yourself to 5 to 10 minutes maximum. When you get out of the shower, gently pat your skin dry, don’t rub and immediately apply your facial and body moisturizers.

Dry skin tip 2: Be gentle

When we cleanse our skin, sometimes we get a little rough. Sometimes, we literally want to scrub our bodies clean. When it comes to dry skin, we need to take it easy and gently cleanse. Don’t exfoliate or scrub your skin too hard because it can irritate and thicken your skin—not a good thing. It’s important to use gentle cleansers as well. Anything with harsh deodorants and detergents can leave your skin feeling extra dry and irritated. Choose a cleanser that contains natural ingredients like Aloe Vera, which will help soothe and soften the skin. Lastly, remember to rinse clean. You want to remove all traces of soap and cleanser from your body, especially your face. Lingering product can cause drying and itching.

Dry skin tip 3: Protection is key

We’ve discussed at great length the importance of sun care products for the face and body. The damage caused by the UVA and UVB rays not only burn our skin, but also contribute to aging.  The signs of aging are not pretty and include fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, skin roughness and dryness. Yes, dryness! It’s important to wear sunscreen products year round, not just in the summer. You must include a protective moisturizer with broad-spectrum sunscreen into your regimen for maximum daily protection against the sun’s rays… and to help alleviate dryness.

Dry skin tip 4: Just for the men

For all of the guys out there who suffer from dry skin, this one is for you. Shaving your face can definitely irritate dry skin. Each time you scrape a razor across your skin, you aren’t only removing unwanted hair, you’re also removing your natural oils. It’s important to shave during or immediately after your shower. This will allow your facial hair to become softer and more pliable, which ultimately will make shaving easier for you. Make sure your razor is sharp so you can avoid irritation. Always use a shaving cream or gel, preferably one with moisturizing properties.  Avoid alcohol based aftershaves and toners at all costs, as they will only contribute to further dryness. Choose a good facial toner as a healthier alternative to aftershave.

Dry skin tip 5: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

If your skin is dry and uncomfortable, adding moisture is very important. Again, apply your moisturizers immediately after your bath or shower while your skin is still damp. Be sure to use a daytime product that contains SPF and a richer, replenishing night cream at bedtime. A hydrating eye cream is perfect for the delicate skin around the eyes. An all-over body lotion or gel will help with dryness and itchiness everywhere else on the body. The legs, arms, back, hands, and EVERYWHERE else can get dry without proper moisturization. If you suffer from dry hands, be sure to apply a nice hand and body lotion every time you wash your hands. When water evaporates from your skin, it can draw even more moisture out of your skin. A good moisturizing cream or lotion is really your best defense against dry skin.

Dry skin tip 6: Stay hydrated

Now that we’ve discussed being moisturized on the outside, remember it’s also important to moisturize on the inside. Drinking water throughout the day not only keeps your body, including your skin hydrated. I prefer to drink green tea all day long. Some days I try to beat my own record by seeing how many cups of tea I can drink in a day! It’s hydrating so drink up!

***

Having dry skin can be a real drag. For some of us, we deal with it every day. For others, it’s seasonal and only becomes bothersome during the colder months. Whatever the case, we can practice these simple tips in hopes of making a difference in our skin.  I know there are many other tips to help combat dry skin and I would love to hear what works for you. Please leave your best advice in the comments section below.
