Tutorial Tuesday – DIY Shaving Cream

The key to a perfect shave can be argued to be the razor, the pre-shave oil, the amount of times, the type of shaving product – anything.

Let’s focus on the product you use. Many men experience irritation from the ingredients found in shaving creams especially those that are alcohol-based.

Sensitive skin? No problem. This homemade shaving cream is chemical and alcohol free and does not contain irritants.TT-DIY-Shave-Cream

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You will need:

  • 3 TBSP Coconut Oil
  • 2 TBSP Sweet Almond Oil (olive oil can serve as a substitute
  • 4 TBSP Raw Shea Butter
  • 6-10 drops of essential oil (citrus or peppermint can help to awaken the senses)
  • Double-boiler
  • Mixer
  • Bowl

Step 1: Use the double-broiler to melt the shea butter and coconut oil at the lowest heat setting. Stir occasionally.

Step 2: Once completed, remove from heat. In a bowl, add the almond oil and essential oils. Stir to combine completely.

Step 3: Put bowl In the refrigerator and allow the mix to harden.

Step 4: After it hardens, use a mixer (electric or hand held) to whip until the mixture has the consistency of frosting.

Step 5: Let it sit and transfer to an airtight container.

P.S. If you have these skin types, use the following type of shaving product:

  • Sensitive or dry skin – pick shaving gels as they are more hydrating than the creams
  • Oily skin – pick shaving creams for the rich, protective lather
  • Normal skin – any works but look for moisturizing ingredients (like glycerin)
