Spring has many advantages: the sun is coming out again, it's finally getting warmer and most people's mood and spirit of activity increases☀️.
But with every change of seasons, your skin has to contend with new demands and changes.
In this blog post we give you some tips on what you should know about your skin in spring and how you can perfect your shave accordingly to keep your skin supple and healthy.
Tip number 1:
In spring your skin can be more sensitive as it is not yet fully used to the warmer temperatures. The temperature fluctuations in spring make it difficult for her to adapt and adapt to the rising temperatures and higher humidity. In addition, your skin is still dry from winter and allergens such as pollen and other pollutants in the air can trigger skin reactions. It is therefore best to use a milder shaving cream or shaving gel to protect the skin from irritation and keep it moisturized after and preferably during your shave. Use shaving products that contain soothing ingredients like chamomile or aloe vera to soothe and nourish the skin.
Tip number 2:
Use a sunscreen! You probably know that: Especially in spring, it's easy to underestimate the amount of sunshine because it doesn't feel that warm yet. However, if you spend a lot of time outdoors, you should use sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays. It is also important that you give your skin a little time after a shave before exposing yourself to direct sunlight Shaving can remove the top layer of skin, making it more susceptible to sun damage. In addition, some products that are used when shaving, such as scrubs or certain aftershaves, make the skin even more sensitive to the sun's rays.
Tip number 3:
If, despite all caution, you have gotten too much sun, you should rather avoid shaving in this area, as shaving always irritates your skin a little. If you don't want to do without hair-free legs or the like despite sunburn, you should definitely Use shaving foam and shave without pressure and only in the direction of hair growth. While the result may not be as thorough as you're used to, the burned skin shouldn't be stressed any more than necessary.
Tip number 4:
Good to know: Since more light and higher temperatures stimulate cell growth, your hair actually grows faster in spring and summer. Responsible for this are the higher temperatures on the one hand and the increased exposure to light on the other. UV light stimulates cell growth. Therefore, the hair cells form and divide faster in summer. So it may be that you have to shave more often in spring than in winter. Accordingly, make sure that you prepare your skin well for every shave and then treat it to the right care so that the increased shaving does not have a negative effect on your skin.
