If you want to know how to shave your beard, you are in the right place! Excess facial hair is annoying for both men and women. The beard, specifically, is one of those areas that can cause many complexes. If you’re a woman, facial hair is totally undesirable. If you are a man, shaving your beard is a good solution to daily shaving. In this article you will find tips on how to shave your beard.

Waxing your beard: how to do it?

More and more men are choosing to have their hair removed. The areas that they wax have been increasing over time, so it is a trend that has to do with aesthetic, hygienic and comfort reasons.

Some men with little hair are tired of having to shave their beards almost every day, so they opt for depilation.

Other men with more hair, however, want to be able to keep their beards trimmed longer without having to use the razor every day.

Many men who resort to beard removal simply want to remove certain unwanted hairs from the neck or cheek area. Whatever your case is, at we explain everything you need to know about how to shave a man’s beard.

Waxing the beard

This is the classic method par excellence. If you have little hair on this part of your face you are in luck. This is your method. The wax helps the hair to root out, which slows down hair growth for up to three weeks. The main problem with this method is that it is quite painful and, if not done properly, there is a danger of irritating the skin. We recommend that you go to a professional the first few times.

Other methods of beard removal

⭐Electrolysis: Electrolysis hair removal offers permanent results for men who wish to remove their entire beard or make a specific design. It is a method that is a little more expensive than traditional methods, but it has the advantage of being a definitive method. It is also a very precise system that gives spectacular results.

⭐Laser Facial hair removal: This is one of the most widely used methods among men for the removal of facial hair on an almost permanent basis. Although the results are much longer lasting than with other methods, it does not ensure permanent hair removal.

⭐Shaving: Although this is not a method of hair removal, you should know that shaving with a razor is the most recommended system for removing facial hair. Most men use it because it’s not painful. It has the disadvantage that it makes your hair grow thicker and stronger, so you will have to shave almost every day. Electric razors are also ideal for men with very sensitive skin, as the razor tends to irritate the skin more.

Non-recommended methods of beard removal

❌Tweezers The method is not suitable for men who have a thick beard, but it is a method that pulls out the hair at the root. While this method may be recommended for its short-term accuracy, it is not recommended for total or partial removal of the beard, as it is very painful and may cause irritation.

Facial hair removal cream: Facial hair removal cream is formulated to remove weak or fine hair. The creams are not intended for men’s beard hair, which is usually strong and thick. Also, it is a system that cuts hair instead of pulling it out by the roots. This means that the hair will come back quickly, just like when you shave with your razor.

If you choose this method anyway, it is important that you follow the manufacturers instructions very carefully, otherwise you could cause extreme skin irritation.

Advantages Disadvantages

✅Constant shaving of the beard can result in the total disappearance of the hair.

✅Opting for the blade ensures a painless shave.â

✅You can choose different hair removal designs.

Skin can be irritated using inappropriate methods.

Waxing can be very painful.

Shaving with a razor can cause ingrown hairs and skin irritation.

The tweezers hurt a lot and the process is longer.

How to shave your beard without pain

Forget about the miraculous methods and what you’ve been told. If you want to know how to shave your beard painlessly, first forget the word ‘depilate’. Painless methods are methods that cut the hair (shave the hair). Depilation necessarily implies the elimination of hair from the root. Even if you opt for permanent methods, such as laser, you have to keep in mind that waxing will always hurt at least a little.

However, if you have not yet decided whether to opt for waxing or to stay in the comfort of the blade, here is a video comparing both techniques.

How to shave your beard in women – All you need to know

Grimace-388987 640Knowing how to shave your beard in women is essential to show off perfect skin all year round. It doesn’t matter if it’s summer or winter: facial hair is uncomfortable for women all year round. In addition, facial hair removal involves different care from that given to other parts of the body, as it presents more sensitive and thinner skin. Therefore, it is essential to choose a method that is effective and durable.

Most women who choose to remove uncomfortable hair from this part of the face opt to do it the traditional way, that is, 90% of women choose to wax.

That is, if you are going to bet on this method, you have to take into account a series of tips that will make facial waxing at home easier and more effective.

⭐Clean and dry skin before you start. Wash the area with a neutral soap before waxing. Make sure your skin is free of makeup and other cosmetic products. Dry the skin thoroughly before applying the wax. Do not wax areas that present flaking, wounds, irritations or dermatitis.

⭐Exfoliate the skin. Many women exfoliate their skin three to five days before their hair removal session. If you do, try to choose a soft product, as the skin of the face is a very delicate area.

⭐Tense the skin when you remove the wax. Before removing the strip of wax, tighten the skin in the opposite direction to the pull. This will prevent you from damaging collagen and elastin fibers, thus preventing unwanted sagging of the skin.

⭐Better after the shower and at night. The steam from the hot water in the shower will make the pores open and the pulling does not hurt as much. If you shave before going to sleep, you will give your skin time to recover at night from the attack. You will wake up without those annoying red spots that come out after waxing.

⭐After waxing, it soothes the skin. Use alcohol-free moisturizers. A cream formulated with aloe vera is ideal for this delicate area. Aloe vera helps to combat skin irritation and inflammation.

⭐Don’t sunbathe. At least for the next 24 hours, try not to expose your skin to too much sun. It is not recommended to take artificial UVA rays or sunbathe. Swimming is not recommended either, as chlorine or sea salt may irritate the skin. It is advisable to use specific sunscreen for the face during the following days.

⭐For occasional touch-ups, use the tweezers. It is not recommended to use  wax on the same part of the face until 72 hours after the first depilation. This is why, if any hair comes out prematurely, it is essential to have tweezers at hand so that it can be pulled out by the roots without resorting to wax. The tweezers are the perfect complement to achieve professional results.

Now you know everything there is to know about how to shave your beard. If you follow these tips, you’ll be able to look your best all year round, whether you’re a man or a woman.

Opinion on beard removal
