For many men, shaving has become a dreaded chore that results in nicks and irritation. Whether you’re shaving at home or treating yourself to a professional shave at a salon or barber shop, the addition of hot lather will make you feel relaxed and help turn your shave into a more luxurious, enjoyable experience.

Hot lather also has some important practical benefits for your skin and hair. Using it results in a much more effective shave, and a result, makes your skin look and feel better.

The following are some of the benefits of a hot lather shave:

It makes hair stand up
If your hair lies close to your skin, it’s harder to get a close shave. Heat makes your hair stand up, which enables you to get a closer, smoother shave.

It softens your hair
Heat opens up your hair follicles and softens your hair. This makes it easier to achieve a close cut without tugging and other pain.

It lessens irritation
If a razor drags along your skin, it can cause irritation and razor burn. Hot lather provides a soothing layer of moisture that allows the blade to glide easily over the whiskers without dragging and tugging. This helps eliminate a lot of problems associated with shaving, such as irritation, redness, and bumps.
