Shaving on dry skin or using the wrong soap when shaving can irritate shaved skin. Pressing too hard or using a dull razor can also aggravate skin.
Step 1: Prep skin
Apply a thick layer of shaving cream mixed with a bit of water and let it soak in for at least 3 minutes.
Step 2: Shave
Shave, following the direction of hair growth. Shaving against the grain in an attempt to get a closer shave will cause skin irritation.
Step 3: Moisturize
Apply unscented lotion with hypoallergenic properties to the freshly shaved skin.Learn more about Shaving
