Dudes. We need to chat. Have a man-to-man. Honest, no-holds barred stuff. Yup, we’re talking manscaping here boys. Bit of a trim and a shave and a spruce up and all. Now there was a time that when manscaping, you’d strike some serious fear into any man child. But we’re in the 2020’s now and that means we need to be forward-thinking, modern, kinda guys. Like any good-looking estate out there, your own personal real estate also needs to be looked after. So first things first. Where, how and what to trim. Let’s start just below the neck and shoulders shall we?

Chest hair. In the 80s and early 90s, most men wanted their chest hair all off. Waxed, with the resulting pain. These days, the trend isn’t quite that smooth. Now it’s more of a nice close trim. Either way, you’ve got to lose that big burly mop of chest hair fellow – it’s just not all that it’s cracked up to be. Go the hair clipper route or try Super-Max Triple Blade Disposable Razors together with Super-Max Sensitive Shave Gel, enriched with a unique triple action formula of Cucumber, Chamomile and Almond Oil. Cucumber reduces skin irritation, Chamomile soothes the skin and helps to heal nicks and cuts, and Almond Oil leaves your skin feeling moisturized. 

But it’s not just your chest that needs some attention – your back and top of your shoulders might need some TLC as well. Ask your partner to help you shave your back and shoulders in the shower, or better still, go the waxing route which you’d probably only need to do once every 3 months or so.

You’ll also need to keep in mind that manscaping does carry some risk of infection like ingrown hairs and skin irritation, so always keep your razors clean and sharp, ensuring that you allow your shaving foam or gel to really settle in before shaving. Vaya Smooth gel is also great at helping reduce razor bumps, burns and pimples brought on by shaving. Use these tips to get the most out of your manscaping experience:

Shave slowly. This is not a race boys. Come out of the starting blocks like Usain Bolt in a bad mood and you risk going down with injury in world record time. You need to concentrate. Small strokes. Focus on what you’re doing. 

Be clean. Shower before you manscape – showering washes away bacteria, and softens your hair. This is particularly important around certain sensitive areas. The golden rule here is ‘one razor for face, different razor for body.’ Again, it’s worth reiterating that Super-Max Triple Blade Disposable Razors are probably your best choice here. 

Preparation is vital. If you go charging in like a rhino, chances are you’ll emerge a bit tattered and torn, so make sure you let your Super-Max Sensitive Shave Gel settle in for 2 or 3 minutes. This will most certainly help your razor negotiate your skin with a lot more smoothness and ease. 

Be post-shave positive. If you’re shaving really close, be aware that it only takes a day or three before stubble will begin to grow back. This means you could start becoming a little itchy. Use a hair conditioner to help relieve this. Conditioners offer silicones which coat your hair, helping to prevent itchiness and the associated scratching.

So there you go. Nothing to be afraid of. Common sense, cleanliness, the right equipment and a bit of experience is going to have you in tip-top shape from head to toe and everything in-between in no time at all. Over to you.
