Step 1: Timing is Everything

  • a

    When you shave can be as important as how you shave.

  • b

    If it works for your schedule, shave in the evening. Shaving can sometimes make the skin feel taut. So shave in the evening to soothe your skin during the night.

  • c

    Shave when you’re on your game. Not when you’re half-asleep or in a big rush.

Step 2: Exfoliate Excellently

  • a

    Exfoliation is extra-important. It gets rid of dead skin cells, softens skin, and helps to release ingrown hairs.

  • b

    You might want to steer clear of coarse body scrubs. Try a gentle scrub with fruit stone extracts.

  • c

    When you shave after exfoliating, the razor will glide across your skin more smoothly. Plus, the results will last longer!

Step 3: Sensitive Don’ts

  • a

    Don’t put on deodorant or antiperspirant immediately after shaving. That can cause irritation.

  • b

    Careful with hair removal (depilatory) creams: The chemicals can cause irritation on sensitive skin.
