How to Help Prevent Razor Burn, Shaving Rash & Irritation While Shaving | Gillette


Don’t get burned by bad shaving habits. Here are some tips on how to
minimize razor burn and irritation. Most of us face it every now and again,
but the right shaving habits and tools can put that burn on ice. First, hydrate to minimize
nicks, cuts, and irritation. Ideally shave during
or after a warm shower. Hydrating softens your hair, allowing
the razor to glide more easily. Use a face wash your facial
scrub to remove oil, dirt, and dead skin for a comfortable shave. Dry shaving is a leading cause of
razor burn, so grab your shaving gel. A good one lets the razor glide
smoothly across your face, and holds in hydration as you go. Allow it time to soak in. Another culprit of razor
burn is dull blades. Check the lubricating strips. If they’re faded or worn,
or if the blades seem dull, it’s time to replace them. Remember, shaving is not the
time to show off your strength. Use light, gentle strokes, and
let your razor do the work. Don’t forget to rinse the blades often. Facial hair grows in many
directions, so you’ll be shaving both with
and against the grain. Shave in the direction that
feels most comfortable. Wash your face with cool
water and pat it dry. Rub in a hydrating aftershave
to replenish moisture and soothe your skin. Great job. Now you can get a close shave,
without feeling the burn. For more tips, watch these videos. Subscribe to the channel to
