About skin shaving

There’s no doubt about it: 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.

What happens when skin is shaved?

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 leading 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 sensitised 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 various shaving concerns, including ingrown hairs and razor bumps, razor burn and sensitivity.

In addition to all of the symptoms that a sensitive or sensitised skin may experience, the sufferer will also see the signs of premature aging on the skin.

To help minimise nicks, cuts and redness associated with shaving, Dermalogica has created a customised, 3-step regimen:

  • Pre-Shave to cleanse skin, soften the beard, and minimise irritation
  • Shave to cushion skin and reduce razor drag
  • Post-Shave to refresh, hydrate, help skin recover and shield against ingrown hairs and premature aging.

Ingrown hairs manifest on skin when hair is cut and the hair grows back at an improper angle. The process of cutting the end of the hair shaft through shaving can force hair back into its follicle, or even cause hair to double over on itself, re-entering the same follicle and growing inwards instead of exiting the surface. The hair shaft can also grow and enter another follicle.

The body recognises this ingrown hair as a foreign body (similar to a splinter), and triggers an inflammatory response that includes redness, itching and a raised area that resembles a pimple that can fill with pus.

To help prevent ingrown hairs, start by exfoliating with physical and chemical exfoliants prior to shaving. Physical exfoliants, including micro-fine Silica beads, will help remove dulling skin cells, prep the skin’s surface, and lift hairs. Chemical exfoliants including Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid will help remove dead skin cells, lift ingrown hairs above the skin line, soften and smooth skin.

I first started using dermalogica, in October 2019 and it was recommended by a new beauty salon in Bury St Edmunds , and bought many products recommended by Halcyon days, Hopefully they will still be in business , after the corona virus , as I have massage there too

Very happy with my purchase. Products arrived in very good condition, within the estimated time. I was kept up to date all along. Prices are the best online that you can find from a Dermalogica authorised retailer. I reccommend their services and yes, I will buy again.
