- Always Stay Sharp – Using a sharp and clean blade gives you a smooth, easy shave and reduces bacteria that can lead to irritation
- Avoid Irritating Ingredients – When purchasing cleaners, toners, aftershaves, and moisturizers, avoid alcohol, fragrances, and dyes.
- Prepare Your Skin – Spend 2-3 min preparing your skin with warm water or a warm, moist towel to soften skin and hair follicles. Follow up with shaving oil before applying shaving cream.
- Apply a Numbing, Cooling Shaving Cream – Use a shaving cream with lidocaine to gently cool and numb the skin for a smoother, less irritating shave.
- Be Gentle – Practice proper technique by applying light blade pressure and shaving in the direction of the hair growth. Gently pull your skin taut, but don’t stretch it.
- Post-Shave Cool-Down – Choose an aftershave formulated for sensitive skin. Keep it in the fridge to make the application extra refreshing!
- Moisturize – There’s nothing worse than irritated, sensitive skin, especially if it’s also dry. Keep your skin’s moisture barrier replenished by following each shave with a fragrance-free moisturizer.
