Skin care products can be a dime a dozen in today’s market. From topical solutions to the latest in soothing pore creams – nearly all brands promise stellar results for pre and post-shaving regimens. One constant that remains is the benefit of natural ingredients over products blanketed with too many chemicals, and for good reasons.
For gentlemen with coarse and curly hair, natural ingredients have been proven to revitalize, rejuvenate and replenish the skin. Some of our favorite Bevel products do all these things and then some. So why mess with skin-care products that are corrosive and full of chemicals that you’ve never even heard of?
If you’re on the lookout for some of that ‘A1’ skin care, check the label for these nourishing natural ingredients that are sure to get you on the blessed path to amazing skin:
Shea butter stems from the African Shea nut and protects coarse and curly hair from dryness and breakage. As an unrefined butter that is ivory in color, shea butter is usually mixed with organic oils to form the perfect moisturizing sealant. From reducing inflammation to soothing essential skin pores, you already know that Bevel is ‘in the know’.
Tea Tree Oil & Witch Hazel
Tea tree oil helps treat acne and skin irritation and it’s one of the defining ingredients in one of Bevel’s top crowd-pleasers, Restoring Balm. It has topical antiseptic and antifungal properties that ensure a cool, refreshing post-shave feeling that restores natural skin vibrancy.
Witch hazel is also thrown into the mix which acts as a nice sidekick by firming and toning the skin. As a natural astringent, it soothes and prevents irritation and can also help to relieve pain from minor cuts. In terms of shaving, it does everything mentioned plus it plays a role in helping to tame razor bumps after each shave.
Olive Oil is rich in essential minerals and vitamins. This includes Vitamin A & E, which helps prevent skin cell damage. It’s an amazing antioxidant that you can find in Bevel Priming Oil that also aids in clearing clogged skin pores and dead skin cells whilst keeping the face fresh and clean. As a natural skin exfoliator, olive oil is a primary ingredient in any pre-shave regimen.
Its role in priming oil is beneficial in softening skin and hair with deep penetration that retains vital moisture. This enables softened hair to be cut or trimmed easier with no tugging or scraping, which bodes well for avoiding ingrown hair development post-shave.
In terms of complementary ingredients, sunflower seed oil and vitamin E work nicely with olive oil—the combination found in Bevel Priming Oil—to protect the skin from harmful sun and UV rays, while also helping prevent scars and keeping skin looking clean and youthful. Forever young, y’all.
Aloe vera does wonders for soothing skin and, also, protects the skin from harmful sun damage and UV rays. It’s an effective moisturizing agent with anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties that combat against common bacteria and fungi that may cause infections. Used in combination with white and green tea, it formulates to make a seriously good shave cream that acts as a natural skin rejuvenator, replenishing pores and ensuring a clean, smooth shave.
For effective shaving, you need natural ingredients that protect the skin from becoming damaged and dry. Don’t get caught up tooling around with the cheap drugstore options. Look for essential ingredients that replenish skin pores, resulting in smoother, cleaner, and fresher skin for overall health.
