    I actually tried shaving backwards and I nicked myself a few times 😒. Shaving backwards doesn't work for me.

    Exactly, when you shave downwards, you don’t shave close. You’ll be prickly

    The first one: I understand why the girl shaves first thing. She probably doesn’t wanna sit in the shower in cold water so I really get it.

    I want to stop shaving my legs because I am having a terrible experience with razors. My legs start itching and are full of bruises caused by the razor :( PS: I don't know what to do I am so self-conscious about the way my legs look that I only wear pants (even in summer)

    I am shaving totally on dry Skin with my . 3 line lazerblades gilette .no gel soap nothing I have learnt from a boyfriend .usually I do it after shower on dry not moist skin. My blade lasts 4 x longer since water doesn’t soak up that small line thing on the blade.I put a towel on my top of the stairs I seat on a towel 3 min. Done Everywhere. I tap the side of the wall the Gillette side 2/3 times the hair falls out continues shaving so it again. When it’s done grab my towel shake it in the bath I shower again only with purewater 15 seconds on my damp body I apply 7 peas amount of coconut oil rub it inn . I end up soft and delicious . Try it

    I also suggest you DONT use shaving cream. Using conditioner softens the hair more and glides the razor more easily. But do wait 1-2 minutes, especially if you are shaving down there

  63. Razor Bump Ingrown Hair Prevention by WIZKER

    Razor Bump Ingrown Hair Prevention by WIZKERپیش 10 ماه

    THE 10 COMMANDMENTS OF INGROWN HAIR PREVENTION 1. THOU SHALT NOT PASS! Too many quick passes with the blade. One pass per hairy area - going 1-2 inches downward at a time - will prevent ingrown hairs. Always shave like you might cause damage, not like your mowing the front yard lawn. 2. HONOR THY DELICATE SKIN! Too many blades! If you are prone to ingrown hairs then you don’t need 3 or more blades. 3. THOU SHALT NOT PRESS! Pressing too hard on the skin with the blade. A gliding, light touch is all you need. This is likely your biggest issue. So follow #4 4. DO NOT TAKE PREP TIME IN VAIN! You should be using a warm/hot water prep (5 mins). Then leave the shaving creme on for more than 3 minutes to really soften the hair. The hair stubble should literally fall away with little or no pressure at all. Pressing hard is the problem! Be gentle ya'll. 5. THOU SHALT NOT USE DIRTY BLADES! Using a blade that's been used way too many times. Yes, this one may be obvious, but be sure to keep your used tools as clean as possible. Soap and rubbing alcohol will destroy bacteria. 6. THOU SHALT NOT CLOG! Use of skin/pore clogging cremes or lotions. These keep hairs from growing up. After a shave, keep your skin bare; let the tiny army breath, and allow those newly shaved, really small, microscopic hairs to grow out just in time for the next shave. 7. REMEMBER TO EXFOLIATE! Exfoliation removes excess layers of skin and prevents shorn hair from regrowing towards the skin and from becoming trapped beneath the skin. Brushing teases the hairs away. Use an ingrown hair brush as directed. 8. THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT OVER SHAVING! Shaving too many times. This rule is hard to follow especially if you have to shave for your career but if you are prone to ingrowns, try shaving with an electric clipper. The results are not super close but no one but you will know the difference. Ladies, try waxing. 9. THOU SHALT NOT GO AGAINST THE GRAIN! Shaving against the grain. Shave in the direction of hair growth (usually down, but perform a face map to be sure). 10. KEEP THE SKIN FREE! Avoid tight fitting clothing around the Adam’s apple (neck) and/or below the waistline region.

    You don’t want to shave when you first get into the shower as the hair is the most course, you want to wait till it’s moistened and softer and wet then your good to go. Dry shaving not to do, cream shave. Close shave. Can also use hair conditioner to. Shaving upwards your going against the grain, which means you will get cut and nicks in the skin which can cause infections and razor burn.
