Shaving & Exfoliation
By now, you already know that exfoliation helps you achieve a smooth shave. And although shaving is already a form of exfoliation, the extra buffing enhances the process for an even silkier finish. But suppose you're wondering when you should exfoliate during your shave routine. In that case, experts agree that it's best to do it pre-shave. This is because gentle exfoliation helps loosen hair trapped underneath the skin, decreasing the chance of ingrown hairs. As for what products to use, a physical scrub works best right before you grab your razor. Alternatively, you can also use a textured wet washcloth or dry brushing to exfoliate the area.
