Shaving Tips for Men: How to Shave Sensitive Skin | Gillette


Getting razor burn, nicks,
or cuts when shaving? Here are some tips on how to get a
smoother, more comfortable shave. 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 facial scrub or wash to
remove oil, dirt, and dead skin, preparing your skin for
a comfortable shave. Use a shave gel for sensitive
skin to soften hairs, improve glide, and help
against irritation. Let the gel soak in before you start. Before you start, check
the lubricating strips. If they’re faded or worn,
or if the blades seem dull, it’s time to replace them. Dull blades can cause nicks,
and irritate your neck and face. Also, replace them if you
feel tugging or discomfort. OK, now shave with light, gentle
strokes, letting your razor do the work. Be careful not to re-stroke
the same area too much, as this decreases lubrication. Don’t forget to rinse the blades often. Remember to reapply shave gel as you go. Facial hair grows in many
directions, so you’ll mostly be shaving both with
and against the grain. Shave in the direction that
feels most comfortable. An advanced, multi-blade
razor like ProShield will help you get a comfortable
shave, even against the grain. Save the most sensitive
parts of your face for last. Allowing the shave gel more time to soak
in makes the hairs softer and easier to cut. You can use the single
blade Precision Trimmer around the back for saving the tricky
places, such as under your nose. Wash your face with cool
water and pat it dry. Rub in a hydrating aftershave
to replenish moisture and soothe your skin. Nice work. Now if someone tells you
you’re too sensitive, at least they won’t be
talking about your skin. For more tips, watch these videos. Subscribe to the channel to
