How To Get The Perfect Shave
Veronica: For more than 50 years Proraso products have been the best aid for the perfect shave. Hi I’m Veronica for Watch Mojo.com and today we’re going to look at some tricks to get that closest shave.
Pascal: (Pascal Desjardins Proraso) Shaving is not natural act— you know you go with a kind of a blade into your face so you have to prepare the skin and the best way to prepare the skin is with eh shaving brush because it’s not only a tool it’s really to work on the skin. It’s better to shave in the shower or after the shower but not before. One of the secrets also for the barbers in Italy is this little product from Proraso, it’s the Before and After Shaving Cream.
See it will benefit as soon as I put it on the skin. Then the— warms the skin really efficiently. You feel it and this is to open the pores so the hair is freer so it’s to go closer without irritating. We go with the brush. Always work with hot water. We’re going to go with the shaving cream.
Veronica: So what cream are you using right now?
Pascal: So this is the shaving cream from Proraso. Again, that has been used by the barbers since its creation in 1948 so the action of the brush what it does, see it exfoliates the skin. It massages the skin. It weaves the hair okay so it softens it but more than anything what it does. It will— all the hair from the brush is going to work into the pores for the skin will be a lot easier to shave.
Okay we’re going to go in the areas growth direction up down.
Veronica: How long should it shave take you if you want to do a good job.
Pascal: To do a bad shave takes 5 minutes, to do a good shave takes 7 minutes so we reapply a second coat that’s the secret, most people they only go like this or over but they don’t reapply another coat of lather. Barber’s if they want to do a good job especially with the blade, they have to do it. You never pass a blade on a bear skin.
Veronica: How many times should you use your blade before you change it?
Pascal: Again that depends on the type of beard you’re having or hair if you’re talking about women. I do like 12 shavings with one blade.
Veronica: What should you do if you cut yourself while shaving?
Pascal: What I do really take a bit of saliva and put it on, there one, two times tha stops the bleeding. So do you want to touch the result.
Veronica: Ooh it is a perfect shave.
Pascal: Now it’s going to be like this until 8:00 or9:00 tonight.
