Pimples after shaving? avoid them now!

Shaving is a daily ritual for many men, but it can also be a problem for your skin. You've probably asked yourself more than once "why do I get pimples after shaving? Post-shave pimples are a common problem that affects many people. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to prevent and treat these pimples.

Tips to avoid pimples after shaving

First of all, it is important to understand why pimples appear after shaving, with skin irritation being the main cause: shaving removes the top layer of dead skin cells, exposing the deeper layers. If not properly cared for, this exposed skin can become inflamed and irritated, which can lead to pimples. Pimples can also be caused by bacteria entering the skin's hair follicles during shaving.

Therefore, to prevent pimples after shaving, it is important to take steps to reduce inflammation and skin irritation. Read on for some effective tips that can help!

1. Do not shave every day

First of all, don't shave every day. Shaving every day can be too harsh on your skin, especially if you have a thick beard or sensitive skin. Instead of shaving every day, try to shave every two or three days. This will allow the skin time to recover and reduce inflammation and irritation.

2. Use a suitable foam

Secondly, use a suitable shaving foam. There are many shaving foams available on the market, but not all of them are suitable for all skin types. If you are looking for a shaving foam that contains ingredients that can avoid irritating the skin, leading to pimples, try our Men Mousse Rasage. And if you also want a fresh and revitalizing finish, try our Shaving Gel - both are suitable for sensitive skin!

3. Rinse your face with cold water

Another "tip" you can follow to avoid getting pimples after shaving is to rinse your face thoroughly with cold water. The cold water will help close the pores and reduce skin inflammation. If you have time, you can soak a towel in cold water and place it on your face for a few minutes for even better results so you won't use the fateful phrase, "I get pimples after shaving" again.

4. Don't drag the towel when drying yourself

It's important to avoid rubbing your skin with the towel after shaving, as this can irritate the skin and cause those pesky blemishes to appear. Instead, gently pat yourself dry. If you have pimple-prone skin, use a clean towel and avoid sharing towels to prevent the spread of bacteria.

5. Use an aftershave for sensitive skin.

Aftershaves help to soothe and soften, but if you have sensitive skin, make sure you choose one that is specifically designed for your skin type to avoid the appearance of pimples after shaving.

This is the case with Baume Apaisant, a gentle and comforting balm that is ideal for dry and sensitive skin, with a soothing effect and a healing action against the irritations of shaving.

This aftershave is alcohol-free and formulated with mild, soothing ingredients. It is also free of artificial fragrances and dyes, as these ingredients can cause irritation and pimples. Discover the rest of our aftershave care products!

6. Drink water frequently

Staying hydrated is essential for healthy skin and avoiding pimples after shaving. Drink enough water to keep your skin hydrated and avoid dryness that can cause irritation and pimples. In addition, water-rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables, can also help keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.

If you are looking for an ally, Aquapower Advanced can become your best option. A moisturizing gel for men's faces that hydrates the skin for 48 hours, providing an immediate feeling of freshness.

Good hydration also helps to eliminate toxins from the body, which can improve the overall appearance of the skin. Look great with a pimple-free face after shaving!
