How to Use Sweet Almond Oil to Shave

by Contributor ; Updated September 28, 2017

Sweet almond oil is celebrated for its health benefits. It is rich in vitamin E and is considered to be a great skin moisturizer. Sweet almond oil can radically change the experience of shaving: Use it daily to increase comfort, get a closer shave and reduce razor burn.

Pour a small amount of sweet almond oil in your palm. Rub your hands together, then gently rub the oil on your face. Cover the areas you intend to shave until your skin looks wet with the oil.

Pour the desired amount of shaving cream in your palm and rub it on your face, covering the oil. Let it sit for a few seconds.

Shave with the razor, sliding the blade lightly over the skin — don't press hard. Use a rag or towel to wipe off any remaining shaving cream.

Apply the desired amount of aftershave.


  • Sweet almond oil can be used on its own as a substitute for shaving cream.
