Shave

The 3-step regimen delivers the closest shave possible and your healthiest skin ever.

how it works

As skin care professionals, we know shaving impacts skin health: ingrown hairs, irritation and redness are just some of the visible signs of trauma your skin undergoes when you take a razor to it.

Simply put, shaving is a form of mechanical exfoliation. Shaving triggers a high level of visible irritation and can serve as a form of over-exfoliation, as well as lead to a compromised lipid barrier. When the skin's lipid barrier is compromised, there is an increase in moisture loss, which leads to dry, scaly, cracked skin and a sensitized skin condition.

Further dehydration can occur in the lower layers of the epidermis when the skin's lipid barrier is compromised. A dehydrated skin leads to inefficiencies in the physiology of the skin, in particular, enzymes responsible for normal desquamation.

Skin dryness can increase skin's susceptibility to a various number of shaving concerns, including Pseudofolliculitis barbae (ingrown hairs and razor bumps), razor burn and sensitivity.

To ensure a clean, streamlined shave and minimize skin trauma, both beard growth and skin condition must be considered when selecting your regimen. Dermalogoica Shave dual-action products are customized to meet skin care and beard growth needs, and allow skin care professionals to outline a straight-forward, three-step regimen that includes products for the Pre-Shave, Shave and Post-Shave process. Each step acts as a progression, designed to help further eliminate the top skin care concerns brought on by shaving.

The Dermalogica Shave system offers a complete regimen to guarantee not only the closest shave possible, but also your healthiest skin ever.
