The perfect shaving ritual – La Barberia de Gràcia

The perfect shaving ritual

ritual pas 1

Aromatic hot towel

Serves to relax the facial muscles so that the hair in the beard can absorb the water causing it to inflate and easing the use of the razor thus diminishing the impact on the skin.

pas 2 afaitat

Essential oil

We apply a pre-shaving product, which is the mix of twelve essential oils. This process softens and smoothens the beard forming a thin film over the skin, minimising irritation

pas 3 ritual

The foaming

Now we apply the foam in a circular motion. It has to be done with a badger hair shaving brush, which is an indispensable tool for a traditional shave.

pas 3 ritual final

The shaving

And the shaving begins. We pass the razor twice. The first is a mild pass. We reapply the foam. The second pass is closer depending on the type of hair and skin.

pas 5 ritual

Cold scented towel

After the two passes of the razor, we apply a cold towel scented with rosemary. This closes the pores, cleans the leftover soap and refreshes the face.

pas final afaitat

After Shave lotion

And finally, we apply an aftershave product to calm and repair the skin, leaving it in the best possible condition and feeling refreshed.
