Having been around for over two decades they know the industry better than most. Here are some simple tips for male models in their morning rituals.
For any model, your personal care routine is the most important part of the day and in male modelling, a clean shave is often required. Always shave in the direction that the hair grows on your face, this is known as shaving with the grain. Shaving against the grain can cause reddish skin irritation known as razor burn so following your shave, apply a moisturising aftershave balm that doesn't contain oil or alcohol. Oil will clog the pores of the skin, and alcohol will dry it. You will be able to see when the skin is tight and elastic by inspecting your look in a mirror under bright, but not harsh, lighting. Always cleanse your skin with an exfoliating product to remove any dead cells. To prepare your face for shaving, rinse thoroughly with warm water, then use a shaving cream or gel containing vitamin A or Aloe Vera. Vitamin A and Aloe Vera will keep your skin moist and soft.
Always use a new blade for shaving because used blades can pull at the hair and cause cuts as the uneven surface drags over the skin. Also, always shave in the direction that the hair grows on your face (which is known as shaving with the grain). Shaving against the grain can cause reddish skin irritation known as razor burn. Following your shave, apply a moisturising aftershave balm that doesn't contain oil or alcohol. Oil will clog the pores of the skin, and alcohol will dry the skin.
