Razor burn or bumps and dry, itching skin are common results from shaving. Anyone who shaves will experience skin irritation after shaving, caused by dull razors, dry skin or skin sensitivity. You can take steps before, during and after shaving to ensure smooth, comfortable skin.
Exfoliate. Many people are guilty of skipping this step. Your skin will be smoother and less prone to redness and irritation. When you exfoliate before shaving, it aligns your hairs for a uniform shave and sweeps away the dead skin, allowing for a closer shave.
