Razor burn

I'm serious, how do I avoid it or treat it? This is getting old.

  • - always use a sharp, clean razor

    - on lower legs, shave against the direction of hair growth; in bikini region shave with direction of hair growth

    - don't shave first thing in the morning; let your legs "wake up" a little

    - use a moisturizing shave gel or foam, or even cheap hair conditioner; don't go without anything or just soap (I use a body wash and add tea tree oil at home; works great for me!)

    - moisturize well afterwards with lotion before skin is fully dried

    - pat dry, don't rub

    - give the skin a rest before putting cloth on and against it, if you can

    - try not to "over shave" - go over the area as few times as you can for hair removal, and if you can get away without shaving for a few days, take advantage of that to rest your skin!
