Tips for Shaving

Published on February 28, 2018

Shaving is an unfortunate necessity for a lot of men and women. Shaving can be particularly difficult and painful for people with sensitive skin. For these people, here are a few shaving tips that can make the process a lot easier to handle.

You should not shave dry skin, as it significantly increases the likelihood of irritating your skin. Try applying a warm towel to the area for a bit to help soften the hair and then applying shaving cream to ensure a smooth and clean shave. Make sure to shave in the direction your hair is growing to avoid pulling the hairs. You should also use a clean and sharp razor.
