3. IF YOU ARE GOING TO SHAVE, USE THE BEST BLADE
Remember peeps, disposable razors are just that – disposable. We’ve all been there, that yellow Bic razor has been lurking in the corner of your shower for wayyy to long, and yet you reach for it anyway. The next day, your bod is shaving rash central… That’s because disposable razors aren’t deigned for long-term use, the blades can dull quickly and leave you with an uneven, bumpy shave – which will only exasperate the ingrown hair sitch. Gillette’s Venus razors come highly recommended by the majority of reviewers on FeelUnique.com (and who are we to argue), just remember to invest in a couple of extra razor heads so you aren’t tempted to reuse the same one over and over.
Another option is to invest in an electrical shaver. Magnitone’s Go Bare Shaver won’t give you as close of a shave as a manual wet razor, but it’s almost as good (take it from someone who knows). And, because it doesn’t cut the hair quite as close to the skin it pretty much guarantees you won’t get any ingrowers or itchy regrowth.
So if you aren’t fussy about feeling 110% smooth, it might be worth trading off to an electrical option for day-to-day, and keeping your wet razor for special occasions only.
4. REMEMBER SHAVING CREAM
If you’re using a manual razor it’s oh-so important to find a good shaving cream. It will give an extra slip to the skin ensuring blades don’t drag, and meaning you can avoid irritating any sensitive spots. Opt for an alcohol-free, sensitive formula, to prevent drying out your skin.
