Start by cleansing your face with a mild, hydrating cleanser to remove dirt and oil. Warm water helps to soften the beard, making it easier to shave.
Choose a high-quality razor with a sharp blade. Some men with sensitive skin find that safety razors or electric shavers cause less irritation than multi-blade cartridge razors.
Shave in the direction of hair growth (with the grain) to reduce the risk of irritation. Going against the grain can lead to ingrown hairs and razor burn.
Apply a good quality shaving cream or gel to your face before shaving. Look for products designed for sensitive skin and free from alcohol and fragrances.
Don't press too hard with the razor. Let the weight of the razor do the work. Excessive pressure can cause irritation.
– Apply a gentle, alcohol-free, and fragrance-free aftershave balm or moisturizer to soothe and hydrate your skin.
