How to beat razor burn when shaving

Shaving can be a hassle for women as well as men.. Not only is it a repetitive, time~consuming task, but there’s always a chance of nicking skin or causing razor burn. If you’d like to avoid that pesky rash, here are some quick and easy tips for beating the burn:

Prep your skin:
Before shaving, be sure your skin is covered with water, soap, or shaving cream, whichever you prefer to use. Dry shaving irritates the skin and hair follicles, leaving an itchy and unattractive rash.

Use Oil:
If your skin is extra dry, shave with an oil-based cleanser rather than shaving cream or regular soap. Simply wet your skin, then massage with the oil. Your shave will be painless and your skin soft and smooth!

Use a sharp blade:
If your skin is prone to razor burn, be sure to use a fresh blade every time you shave. Another option is to clean your razor blade carefully after each use to ensure that no rust, excess hair, or bacteria is sticking to the blade.

After shaving, it’s important to replenish the moisture stripped from your skin in the process. Once your skin is clean, rinse and dry well, then apply a healthy amount of moisturizer.

That’s it! May those pesky rashes become a thing of the past!
