Is Your Skin Irritated From Shaving? Here Are 6 Tips To Help Men Get Healthier Skin

If your shaving experience results in any type of irritation - whether that’s nicks, burning skin, ingrown hairs, or ugly bumps growing along your neck - don’t worry, because all that’s about to end. Today, let’s review the exact changes you need to make in your shaving regimen to get you a better feeling and more attractive shave.

Lots of guys get ugly bumps, nicks or irritated skin when they shave. They think it’s just a normal part of shaving. Here are six tips to stop shaving irritation.

Tip #1 - Wash your face with warm water (not hot and not cold)

Cold water causes your skin to tighten and to become stiff. This ultimately increases your chances of getting cut even if the razor touches your skin with the slightest amount of pressure. Using hot water is not a good idea either. High heat dries out your skin, making it more brittle and prone to scratching as you shave. Warm water makes your hair and skin soft and pliable without causing dryness, which decreases your chances of being cut.

Tip #2 - Don’t Skip The Shaving Cream

For a long time, I didn’t understand why shaving cream was so important. But, shaving cream does two things for your face.

First, it keeps moisture in your beard hairs, which makes them softer and easier for your razor to cut. Imagine your hair is like spaghetti. If you try to cut it while it’s dry, the pasta is brittle and breaks off in jagged chunks, but when it’s wet, you can cut it without a problem.

Second, shaving cream puts a thin layer of protective coating on your face, to keep the razor from rubbing up against your skin and irritating it. You don’t want to drag a sharp razor over your face without this!

Instead, apply an even coat of cream before shaving any area. By applying shaving cream, you’ll allow your razor to glide over your skin rather than to drag over it. Just think of it like this... no shaving cream = no shaving. That means, you’ll need to lather up your face two to three times on a normal shave. The good news is, your skin will thank you for it.

Tip #3 - When To Switch Blades

Dull blades snag on your skin, and snagging causes nicks and inflammation. That’s why you should change your blades after two to three uses. The good news is, while cartridge razor refills can be expensive, safety razor blades (either the single edge or double edge kind) cost just pennies on the dollar. Change your blade and get a closer shave.

Tip #4 - Upgrade Your Razor

You can thank your multi-blade cartridge razor for the irritation - it’s what’s causing your skin to bump and burn. Yes, they’re great at giving you a smooth shave, but they’re not worth the damage they’re causing your skin. And, while it might feel like you’re saving money up front, it’ll cost you over time.

Think about it: when you drag your razor across your cheek, lips or neck 2-3 times with a 5-blade razor, it’s the same as shaving 10 to 15 times. Odds are good you’re going to get razor burn. You’re going to shave 10,000 times in your lifetime. Pick the right razor, or you’re going to age your skin quicker than it has to.

And if you think that’s bad, then you’ll hate the razor bumps. The multi-blade cartridge is designed to tug the hair out of the pore with each blade until they finally cut the hair below the skin. This can cause razor bumps or skin irritation, especially if you’ve got curly hair.

The solution is to shave with a sharp, single blade razor (it’s fine if it’s double edge or single edge). A single blade shaves on the surface of your skin, not beneath it. With the correct angles, you can achieve an extremely close shave without having to shave beneath the skin.

With multi-blade razors, once the first blade passes over the skin, the following blade then shaves beneath the skin. Every blade after the first is cutting deeper and deeper into your skin. That’s why many guys get razor burns, bumps, and skin irritation. You’re shaving off so many layers of your skin that you are bound to cause irritation and inflammation.

A multi-blade cartridge isn’t special. It was a marketing ploy invented by Don Draper’s buddies on Fifth Avenue to differentiate one razor from the next. The problem is that Fifth Avenue got it wrong, and your Grandpa had it right.

Tip #5 - Take Small Strokes, & Rinse After Every Time

Going up, down or across your face with a clogged razor is a bad idea. The hair, skin and shaving cream get stuck between the blade and the head, so the blade can’t cut as easily. This increases the chances of your razor snagging and nicking you. Rinse after every stroke.

Tip #6 - Use Alcohol-Free Aftershave

No matter how well you shave, removing hair from your skin with a blade will cause inflammation. It’s your skin’s way of protecting itself. The problem is, inflammation can cause the skin to become red and tender. That’s why it’s important to have an aftershave with anti-inflammatory ingredients like lavender oil. Just make sure it doesn’t contain alcohol. Alcohol dries out your skin.

Think about it like this: your skin takes a beating every day. That is why it is vital to protect your skin after each shave. Many aftershaves contain alcohol, which is why you feel a burning sensation when you apply it. Using an after shave that contains alcohol is a recipe for disaster and skin irritation. Alcohol is extremely good at drying out your skin and to counteract the drying many aftershaves put in questionable synthetic ingredients into their products. Fortunately, there is a better way to keep your skin healthy after a shave.

Look for an alcohol-free aftershave made with all the ingredients your skin loves. Some of the best ingredients are:

  • Aloe Vera to help replenish moisture
  • Witch Hazel to tighten pores and reduce inflammation
  • Lavender to help reduce redness and irritation
