  • Your holding the razor the wrong way and applying to much downward pressure when shaving.

  • Pressing too hard! May not seem like it but that is the reason.

  • Probably the razor you are using. I only use Schick Disposable Twin Blade Razors. Bic razors are the pits & cut like crazy.

  • Make sure its new & sharp. If its dull you press too hard & cut yourself easier.

  • Let me ask you this. What razor are you using? I always cut myself when I use disposable razors. I use schick quattro. I love it and never have a problem with nicks and cuts unless it is time to change the razor.

  • Try chaging your razor (I use Venus razors, right now I'm using the Spa Breeze, no shave cream required), don't rush, change your shaving cream or soap you use when you shave, make sure your razor isnt rusty and dull =)
