But before diving into this list, be sure to check out the following tips from Venus Scientist Claire Girdler on how to get your closest, smoothest, least irritated shave. Bumps, redness and ingrown hairs - be gone!
Tip 1: Prepare the skin. If your skin gets irritated easily, try applying pre-shave oil to the area before your shaving cream for more protection.
Tip 2: Girdler suggests showering or bathing before you shave to ensure that the hair is hydrated. "Hydration of the hairs makes them significantly softer and easier to cut, which reduces the feel of tug and pull."
Tip 3: Make sure you change your blades frequently (after every five shaves) since blunt blades only require more strokes, which can result in irritated skin.
Tip 4: Pull the skin taut to "minimize any damage to the skin and help the blades cut closer, resulting in a closer shave, " says Girdler.
Tip 5: Apply a post-shave treatment like a fragrance-free, soothing moisturizer with aloe or chamomile. Girdler says, "Regular exfoliation and skin moisturizing will help reduce the occurrence of ingrown hairs."
