How to Apply Body Lotion Effectively

The benefits of using a good body lotion are well-documented, but what most people do not know is that these advantages can only be availed if body lotion is applied effectively. This guide aims to help people learn the ins and outs of applying body lotion effectively so that they can enjoy cleaner, healthier and softer skin!

The first thing you need to keep in mind before applying lotion on your body is that it is not advisable to rush the process. If you try applying body lotion in 5-10 minutes, you probably will not be able to cover all parts of your body, and you will not enjoy the full extent of benefits associated with their use.

The most efficient way to apply body lotion is to work on each part of your body individually. Only take the amount of lotion you need for a particular part of your body at any one time. The best technique is to start from the ankles, and slowly move up to the neck. Make sure you give each part of your body enough attention.

While you are applying the body lotion to your body, try to use a circular motion. Do not use excessive pressure, but instead, apply light pressure from the palm of your hand. For your face, apply the lotion with your fingers and make sure you avoid your mouth, nose and eyes. When applying body lotion to your feet, massage both the top and heel of your foot with slightly more pressure. Wear a pair of socks after applying lotion to your feet.

Most people forget to apply body lotion on their hands, and particularly their fingers. Make sure you at least rub whatever lotion there is remaining onto your fingers, wrists and palm. Once you are done, do not wash your body for at least a few hours. It is actually advisable to apply body lotion on yourself as soon as you have taken a bath so that you let the moisture stay on your skin for as long as possible.

Benefits of Using Aftershave Lotion

Aftershave, as its name suggests, is a lotion or cream that is supposed to be applied onto the face after the shaving process is complete. Despite the fact that the benefits of using aftershave lotion are well-documented, many people still avoid taking advantage of this wonderful product. We at Barber Shop Brand hope to convince you to adopt an aftershave lotion.

The main reason why most people who use aftershave choose to do so is because of the relief it provides after shaving. You’ve probably had bad shaving days either because of bleeding or a burning sensation. A good aftershave lotion will help sooth the pain and actually make you look forward to your next shave.

Besides enjoying shaving relief, it is also worth using aftershave lotion to improve the condition of your skin. You may not know it, but shaving takes quite a toll on the skin on your face. Men who get acne may benefit from using a good quality aftershave lotion. Aftershave also clears out the pores on your skin from bacteria that would otherwise lodge itself in.

Despite popular misconceptions, aftershave is not always extremely expensive. Yes, some aftershave brands are quite costly and a burden for most wallets. However, there are products available in every price range that are just waiting to improve your overall shaving experience. Cost should not be a deterrent for you not using aftershave lotion.

Aftershave can do wonders for your appearance and level of confidence. Most aftershaves come with great scents that can enhance not only what other people think of you, but what you think of yourself. If you select a high quality aftershave lotion, you are definitely going to impress those around you with a discreet scent. Once you start getting compliments from people, your confidence will be sky high!


Style your Hair with Gel at Home

Do you often find yourself trying to make your hair look good in a short amount of time? For a busy working person, visiting a hair stylist on a daily basis is not an option. That is why learning how to style your hair with gel is a skill that will benefit you for a long time to come.The best thing about using hair gel for styling your hair is that it works on literally every kind of hair, be it curly, straight, long or short. You just need to make sure you buy a hair gel that suits your hair and make sure you know how to apply it in the most effective way for the cut and quality of hair that you boast.

The reason why you can quickly style your hair with gel and make it look great is because it can make your hair stick in any position you like. If you are styling your hair using hair gel, you should first make sure that you apply it to your hair while it is wet. It is essential to make sure that all strands of your hair are covered in gel if you want your style to look consistent and professionally done. The best way to ensure that this happens is to apply gel on each strand of your hair from the root to the tip.

If you want your hair to have a wet look to it, you should let your hair dry naturally after you apply gel to it. in order to add volume to your hair, you should take a blow dryer immediately after applying gel and blow against the position in which your hair normally sets. This will allow it to poor up more than usual once the gel sets. You can also style your hair with gel in such a way that it becomes curled. Just apply gel and then tie your hair in a tight braid until it dries. Once you open your braid, your hair will curl up beautifully.

10 Shaving Tips Every Man Should Know

It can be frustrating dealing with a bad shave. If you’ve been dealing with those irritating bumps and nicks a little too frequently, you will probably be relieved to know that the shaving process doesn’t have to sting so much. Unfortunately, there are a number of shaving tips on the internet that are posting inaccurate information about the best ways to shave. Here at Barber Shop Brand, we hope to separate some of those myths from facts through this series of shaving tips.

Some people believe that once they start shaving, they will need to continue doing so, even during winters. This is just a myth. As a matter of fact, shaving is merely the shortening of hair extremely close to the skin. It will have no effect on the way your hair grows from inside. It might be a good time to also mention that shaving again and again does not mean your hair will come back thicker. It might feel different but that’s because it is just cut at an angle. Once your hair returns to its prior length, you will realize that it isn’t much different from what it was before.

The next in our series of shaving tips is for those who have come to believe that shaving with soap or even just water is just as effective as using a proper shaving foam. Shaving gels and foams are designed so that they can soften the skin so that you can enjoy a safe and comfortable close shave. Water also softens your skin, but only does so momentarily. By the time your razor is in position to do its job, your skin will be too hard to facilitate a close shave. Soap, on the other hand, is designed to clean, and not soften your skin.

Introducing the Barber Shop brand

Hello and welcome to our blog. If you somehow misread the website address you may be forgiven for thinking this is the home of some kind of Barber shop quartet, famed for their harmonious singing, but sorry – its Barber Shop brand (not band).

So what is Barber Shop brand all about?

In the delightful town of Murrieta, Ca. you will find Eugene’s Babershop at 40675 California Oaks Road but in addition to our daily routine of styling, trimming, shaving and just about anything asked of us, we have our very own line of products under the banner of “Barber Shop brand”. Many hairdressers, barber shops and styling salon’s provide a straight-forward hairdressing service, quite often using branded sprays, lotions etc. that are not always freely available to the general public, although there is often a request to be able to buy these products.

That is where Barber Shop brand comes in to play so we developed our own brand that we use “in-house” that has been very popular and made available to our patrons or anyone else who cares to try them out. On our website you will find our most popular products that include shave cream, after shave body lotion, and the ultra slick shave cream.

Now we have introduced our Barber shop in Murrieta and a quick overview of our products let’s focus on the detail of just one of them.

Barber Shop brand – Ultra slick shave cream 8oz

This has been an ever popular choice since the day we launched the Barber Shop brand name about 10 years ago. It is a quite unique blend that requires minimal application. It looks very much like a lotion, although is a viscous cream. All you need is a thin layer over your facial hair to allow the razor blade to simply glide across the skin without causing any irritation.
