created 5 years ago


Razor burns are very painful, but you can follow these simple steps to get a smooth shave without the irritating bumps and burns.



 



Step 1: Splash skin



Splash warm water on the areas that you will be shaving.



Tip: Shaving while showering opens pores and hair follicles, lessening the chance of razor burn.



 



Step 2: Soak washcloth



Soak the washcloth in warm water, wring out any excess, and then add a few drops of baby oil to the center of the cloth.



 



Step 3: Condition skin



Condition your skin by wiping it with the prepared washcloth.



 



Step 4: Apply shaving cream



Apply shaving cream to your skin.



Tip: Warm shaving cream can help reduce razor burn.



 



Step 5: Shave



Shave with a fresh razor blade to reduce abrasions and nicks. Use short strokes with minimal pressure, shave in the direction of hair growth, and rinse the blade between each stroke.



Tip: Try not to go over the area over and over.



 



Step 6: Rinse



Rinse oil and cream from your skin using cold water and then pat dry.



 



Step 7: Soothe skin



Soothe your shaved skin with aftershave cream or lotion, or aloe vera gel.
