10 Shaving Tips

Morning is the best
time to shave

In the early morning hours, the face is more relaxed and the razor glides smoother without irritating the skin.

Always use Proraso
Pre-Shave Cream

It softens the hairs of the beard, facilitating the application of shaving soap.

Drape a wet, warm towel on your face for one minute

Just as they do at traditional barbershops, or shave after your morning shower when the skin is moist and soft from the water.

The best shave is obtained using the Proraso Brush & Shaving Soap

To obtain a delicate foam, wet the brush and apply it to the soap in circular movements until building up a rich lather. Using shaving soap increases hair volume and allows for a smoother, closer shave.

While shaving, try to use
the razor in a soft yet
decisive manner

Do not apply too much pressure on the razor and follow the lines of the face, always keeping the skin stretched.

Always keep your razor clean

Rinse the razor well with warm water after at least two shaves. Leftover residue from previous shaves can reduce efficiency and increase the risk of damaging the skin.

To obtain a smooth and perfect shave, always remember that one shave is not enough

Remember to lather the face a second time and repeat shaving


Do not neglect the
post-shave phase

Rinse the face well, washing off all
residue form the cream, soap or foam.




Apply Proraso
After Shave Balm

Even if shaving has been completed correctly, it is always stressful on the face.

Take care of your skin

If you do not shave daily or you have a problem with in-grown hair, make sure you use a face cream every day.
