Ooh razor burn can be uncomfortable! But hopefully these few tips will help reduce razor burn for you. First you should always clean your skin with a GENTLE scrub or loofah. If you shave after taking a warm shower or washing your face with warm water this will help also. And if exercise is part of your daily routine, try shaving after exercise, because perspiration can irritate freshly shaved skin. Then use new, sharp razor blades. Always shave with hair growth, not against it, in short strokes, not long ones. And the carnal rule is, ALWAYS rinse your blade after every stroke. Don’t forget to rinse all traces of shaving cream from your face, with cold water to close the pores. Some people suggest after shave creams with aloe in it, helps to prevent razor burn.
