Skin Health is very important when shaving and Dermalogica have developed the 3 Step Shave. The steps are designed to help clean and prepare the skin prior to shaving, to protect during shaving and restore the skin after shaving. They have developed a range of 8 products that are designed to be used during shaving to help protect your skin and promote better skin health.

Step 1 – Pre-shave: Prepare

Dermalogica Pre-Shave Guard
Pre-Shave Guard when applied under Soothing Shave Cream, maximises beard softening while shielding and preparing skin to help minimise razor burn and bumps.

Step 2 – Shave: Protect

Help cushion and protect the skin during shaving and reduce razor drag and burn for a clean and even shave.
