What is it
Many men develop folliculitis (inflamed or even infected hair follicles) after shaving. The follicles may become swollen and red, and the openings are sometimes filled with yellow pus. This form of folliculitis is more frequent in men who shave with water than in those who use an electric razor.
What to do
For men who use blade razors, we recommend using CLEANSING CREAM instead of traditional shaving foams because of its delicateness. After wetting the face with warm water, massage CLEANSING CREAM into the skin of the bearded area until the hair have softened. This allows the blade to slide more easily, which reduces friction and therefore the irritation caused by shaving. After shaving, the skin should be thoroughly rinsed and dried, and then covered by a thin layer of ASTRINGENT GEL which, in addition to its antibacterial action, will also stop any bleeding caused by small cuts. Ten minutes later, apply EMOLLIENT CREAM to soften the skin.
For men who use an electric razor, we suggest massaging 2S CREAM well into the bearded area in the evening. The next morning after shaving, apply ASTRINGENT GEL and then, possibly, EMOLLIENT CREAM after 10 minutes.
