As I am a PRETTY HAIRY guy myself, I have to have some shaving tricks to prevent RAZOR BURNS, FIERY RED BUMPS, and things of that nature. This post will be SHORT, PRECISE, and EFFECTIVE! So I will try to keep it as short as I possibly can (as I tend to talk/write way too much).
Ladies, and Gentlemen, (and those who are in between) here are;
MY 4 ULTIMATE SHAVING TIPS & TRICKS
- GET MEN’S RAZOR, DO NOT BUY THE ONES FOR WOMEN
For an effective shaving process, you should ALWAYS go for men’s razor, and never ever buy the razors for women. BECAUSE, men’s razors are designed to be sharper and more precise as men have thicker hair, and stronger hair follicles. Thus, making it much easier to shave any area on your body. Especially if you went through the messy shaving process once, you’ll be much happier with a men’s razor. My suggestion would definitely be Gilette® Mach 3 Sensitive, because it is designed for sensitive skin, and takes care of the hair pretty well on its own, without any trimming, and leaving no irritation at all.
This is the magic product;
- DO NOT BUY BODY RAZORS
JUST DON’T! From my own experience, I have tried so many different razors, and I can guarantee you that body razors do not really work the way you want them to work. As body parts do not get irritated as easily as face, body razors are not designed to ultimately prevent irritation. Their blades are not that strong and they don’t grip on the hair as they should, because of the lower quality blades. No matter how brands promote their body razors, just buy a facial razor, for an overall better shaving experience.
- USE HAIR CONDITIONER INSTEAD OF SHAVING CREAM
YES! GET THAT HAIR WELL-CONDITIONED, GURL! Hair conditioners are designed to get your hair silky smooth, and if you used a conditioner before, you know that as soon as you apply it to your hair, it relieves your scalp and gets the hair creamy smooth. SO, WHY NOT USE IT FOR SHAVING? Instead of spending extra bucks on a shaving cream that works not so good, just use your typical hair conditioner on the parts you want to shave, just apply a generous amount of conditioner, wait for 30 to 45 seconds, then put that razor to WERK. Trust me, you will be thanking me when you see that razor gliding down without ANY problem. ALSO, hair conditioners moisturize the skin very well, which helps preventing razor burns.
- MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, AND WHEN YOU’RE DONE MOISTURIZING, MOISTURIZE SOME MORE!
You know good and goddamn well that moisturizing IS THE KEY! If you don’t like aftershave balms, you can just use your good ol’ moisturizer, as long as you do the moisturizing. Razor burns and redness are caused by the dry and irritated skin after shaving, so if you do not moisturize your freshly shaved skin, YOU WILL BURN IN HELL!!! Well.. maybe not, but you will definitely be more prone to redness, burning sensation on the shaved area, and ingrown hair. However, using a conditioner, as I previously mentioned, will help you A LOT!
And that is all for the BEST shaving experience of your life!
