Should You Use Shav­ing Gel or Foam?

THE MAN Magazine Cambodia - - The Essential -

It can be over­whelm­ing when you have more than just one shave prod­uct to choose from. So we turned to Dove Men+Care groom­ing ex­pert Dr. Al­lan Peterkin for his opin­ion: “Half of men in the U.S. ac­knowl­edge that as they get older, their skin needs more at­ten­tion and takes longer to re­cover. This is mostly a re­sult of less­ened elas­tic­ity and mois­tur­iza­tion. That’s why it’s par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant to en­sure you in­cor­po­rate mois­ture into your shav­ing rou­tine. I rec­om­mend shave gels, which don’t re­quire as much prod­uct when ap­ply­ing, and also be­cause they lu­bri­cate fa­cial hair very well. A gel is more highly con­cen­trated than a foam, with a rich con­sis­tency and a creamy lather. This helps cre­ate a mois­ture-rich bar­rier against a drag­ging ra­zor­blade. Shav­ing foam, de­spite its fluffy tex­ture, does not pro­vide quite the same level of pro­tect­ing lu­bri­cant for your skin. It some­times leads to skin dry­ness, one of men’s pri­mary skin con­cerns. It’s im­por­tant to test dif­fer­ent op­tions and scents un­til you find the one that’s right for you.”
