Reduce Shaving Irritation

Shaving can be part of a man’s daily routine but not all the time it can be perfect. Some shaves are ruined because of irritation. To reduce such unfavorable outcomes, here are some tips that will help you:

Identify Any Skin Issues

If you have skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, or even acne, it is best to get healed first before shaving. 

Soften the Hairs

In order to help have a smooth transition of the razor’s movements, it will help if you soften the stubble. Apply a hot towel for a few minutes on the area to be shaven. 

Treat Shaving Preparation Like a Skincare Routine 

Include products for exfoliation in your shaving preparation. This can help in preventing ingrown hairs and razor bumps. 

Always Apply Smoothening Products

You can choose a shaving oil, gel, or cream. The purpose is to make it easier for the razor to trim the hair. 

Remember the Golden Rule Of Shaving

If you forgot, the golden rule in shaving is NOT to go against the grain at your first few shaves. After you make at least 2 passes, then that’ll be the time to go against the direction of the hair. 

Choose a Safety Razor

Razor burns usually happen when a certain area is repeatedly stroked by a razor blade. Since it is tasking to hold the blade at a 30-degree angle, it will be convenient if you choose a safety razor. 

Sharpen the Blade Always 

Another way to avoid repeating strokes in one area is to keep the blade sharp always. It will be advantageous if the desired amount of hair to be trimmed will be done in just one stroke. 

Consider Electric Razors

If irritation gets worsen due to the lack of confidence in handling a razor blade, consider using the electric one.
