Once your shaving cream is on, you’re ready for the main job. Use a clean, sharp razor to make sure you get the perfect shave.
- Your first step is to shave in the direction that your hair grows - as you might notice that your hair can grow in every direction. This is an important step to prevent those painful red shaving bumps.
- Use gentle strokes and let your razor do the work for you. Another cause of shaving rashes is going in too hard with the razor.
- Always rinse your razor after every swipe, in order to get rid of the hair caught in the blades.
- When you need to go over the same area again, make sure to reapply the shaving gel. Although, try not to shave over the same area too many times - again to reduce the risk of irritation and getting a shaving rash.
