Other Tips and home remedies to Prevent and Cure shaving related discomfort
First thing first, always use a good quality razor and change its blade on regular intervals. I don’t prefer blades with double or triple edges -actually these types of blades may lead to acne and other skin related troubles. But yes, you can go for electric razor.
If you are dealing with cuts, burn and pimples then applying ice cube on the affected area may brings you some relief.
Always use downward strokes while shaving on the upper neck and vice versa.
Washing facial skin with warm water is also a good decision. This remedy will make your skin soft and moisturized as a result you’ll not feel pain during shaving.
Always try to buy and use a good quality, aloe vera based aftershave lotion. You can also use sunscreen lotion.
You can use over the counter hydrocortisone remedy to get rid of razor burns.
