Shaving is a daily routine that many times ends in pain and blood. Other accidents that involve pain and blood end with an emergency room. Not for shaving. If you are one of the unlucky ones with sensitive skin, cuts, rashes, bleeding, and ingrown hairs are an everyday thing for you. Despite all of the little tricks and advice everyone has given you, you still find yourself dragging that razor across irritated and hurting skin. Have you ever stopped to consider the possibility of putting all the blood and cuts behind you? Do you still believe there is a way to get a close shave and still have clear skin? Are you willing to try again? If so, here are tips to getting that perfect shave. |
1. Washing your face. You have to keep your face clean before going in for the shave. Many men and women choose to shave during a hot shower. While this can work, often times the hotness of the steam can numb the skin to irritation and cuts resulting in an even worse shave which leads me to number 2.
2. Open pores. Whether it is with a hot towel or steam from a shower, you need to get your pores open.
3. Shaving oil. Creams and soaps are popular to shave with but in reality oils are more successful at separating the edge of the blade from scratching the skin.
4. After Shave. After rinsing, use after shave generously. Just when you think you have enough, throw some more on to close off the pores and kill bacteria.
