A Turkish shave or a hot towel shave is the ultimate way to end a visit to a Turkish barber. A traditional Turkish shave will be clean and close, leaving your skin feeling wonderfully smooth, with no evidence of shaving cuts or razor burn.
Men typically enjoy a Turkish shave as an occasional relaxing treat – it’s an indulgence, but it’s a good way to practise self-care, giving you the chance to take a little time just for you out of your busy schedule.
Which Elements of a Turkish Shave Can You Adopt at Home?
- Expose your skin to steam to open your pores by always showering ahead of shaving
- You could even apply a towel dampened with warm water to your face to cleanse your skin before you start to shave, bringing the feeling of a hot towel shave to your own home
- Use a shaving gel or shaving foam to lubricate your face to guarantee a smoother razor glide
