Dr Gram’s 4 easy steps for the close comfortable shave you desire!

Shaving doesn’t have to be a daily downer. Most men dread shaving because of razor burn, time commitment, shave bumps, etc., and after all that suffering, most don’t get the close, comfortable shave they want. Follow Dr Gram’s shave techniques to get that perfect shave you’ve been chasing all these years.

Products and tools you will need:

  • Hot water (Recommendation: shave after showering)
  • GRAM Skincare Daily Scrub
  • GRAM Skincare Shave Cream
  • Razor (Recommendation: Fusion Pro-Glide Razor)
  • GRAM Skincare Daily Moisturizer

Step1 #:  Prepare

Begin by exfoliating with Dr. Gram’s Daily Scrub. This will soften and lift facial hair for a closer shave. For those who shave daily, you can alternate days with GRAM Skincare Clarifying Cleanser.

Step #2:  Applying the Shave Cream

Most shave creams require the additional application of a shave oil to provide a slick enough surface for the razor. GRAM Skincare Shave Cream includes shave oils to eliminate a step and create a better shave.  To use, simply use fingers to work the shave cream into the beard aggressively in a circular motion.

Step #3:  Shave

Grab your Fusion Pro-Glide Razor and begin shaving with the grain of the hair, which is normally a downward stroke.  Use short strokes and rinse the blade often in warm water.  In the tough-to-get areas, you can go against the grain to ensure a close shave without the fear of shave bumps.

Step #4: Moisturize

Rinse your face first with warm water and follow it with a couple of rinses with cool water to tighten up the pores. Pat your face dry. Now it is time to moisturize skin with GRAM Skincare Daily Moisturizer and your favorite SPF product.

Benefits of Nutra-VÎt Complex from Dr Gram

I wanted to focus on some of the key ingredients that I use in all of GRAM Skincare products…my Nutra-VÎt Complextm.   The three ingredients in my complex are Niacinamide, Glucosamine and Vitamin E.  These three ingredients work synergistically together and have a ton of benefits for the skin when used topically.

The benefits of Nutra-Vît Complex™are:

  • Balances skin hydration
  • Supports collagen and elastin production
  • Aids in wound healing
  • Reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces skin discoloration (age spots, pregnancy mask, sun damage)
  • Helps prevent the appearance of future hyperpigmentation
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-oxidant – combats free radical damage
  • Promotes healthy cell turnover and natural repair process
  • Protects skin from environmental aggressors and premature aging
  • Helps maintain the natural oil balance
