change razors after 3 or 4 shaves and try using a good conditioner instead of shaving cream. Try to find one that doesn't contain any type of alcohol.


You could do what I do,DON'T SHAVE!!!! If you decide to go that route,buy a good set of trimmers.

Everyone has different skin types but coming from an old guy who has always had slightly sensitive skin, I offer the following advice.

Always shave after you shower. Shower for at least 10 minutes in comfortably warm water or as warm as you can handle it. Then shave immediately after.
There'* a lot of truth in the old saying SSS. Sh.it, shower and shave.
The best after shave I have found...and I have tried them all...is Old Spice after shave. Forget the Cologne, it'* too strong Ya ya I know what you're thinking, but heh, it works. It helps after applied to rinse off your face to remove most of the very strong odour. The burning sensation cools your skin and prevents razor burn. Ya gotta try it before you knock it.

Women love the smell as long as it'* not over powering.

I know I'm a girl, but the conditioner thing works and I don't shave my legs until I'm almost through with my shower because the warm water softens your skin. Oh and by the way don't try shaving too fast... I learned the hard way bc I wasn't paying attention lol! :(

Skin seems to get used to it after a while. Sometimes I just wet my skin and use soap. When camping I've been known to use just water or dry shave. Just don't go against the grain when dry shaving, or go over it too many times. Wetter is better.

Dry shaving? Now that takes skill. You might as well take sand paper to your skin geez
