How to Shave

Shaving can be a challenge for both men and women. Here are dermatologists’ tips to help you get a clean shave:

  1. Before you shave, wet your skin and hair to soften it. Taking a shower or bath is a great way to soften your hair.

  2. Next, apply a shaving cream or gel.

  3. Be sure to shave in the direction that the hair grows.

  4. Change blades or throw away disposable razors after 5 to 7 shaves to help minimize irritation.

  5. Men who have acne should take special care while shaving. Shaving can irritate your skin, making acne worse.
  • If you have acne on your face, try experimenting with electric or disposable blade razors to see which work best for you.
  • Use a razor with a sharp blade.
  • Shave lightly to prevent nicks and never try to shave off the acne as both can make acne worse.
