Use: The tradition is strictly for shaving with shaving soap, brush and razor. The ideal time is in the morning, because the muscles of the face are rested, hydrated and relaxed.
The ritual begins with the application of a warm damp cotton cloth on the face, to favor the emollient effect of the cream. Soaping is performed with a wet brush through circular movements that provide a rich foam and a beneficial massage on the skin. The razor blade is washed with hot water and shaving begins: hair, counter-hair, a face rinse with fresh water to facilitate the closure of the pores and alleviate any irritation. The application is completed by the application of an after shave that helps keep the skin fresh and hydrated.
To ensure the long life of the brush it is essential to wash it thoroughly, shake it and dry it. With time and use, the brush handle tends to become opaque. To maintain the original shine of the wood, natural wax treatment is recommended.
