ITCHING after shaving is a common occurrence that can lead to irritation and discomfort.
There are a few simple steps you can follow to make your shaving routine go smoothly.
The company Razor Estrid took to TikTok to share three tips for shaving without irritating your skin.
The first tip concerns the type of shaving cream you use on your skin.
“Make sure you don’t use any shaving cream or conditioner that contains perfume, as it’s very common to have an allergic reaction to perfume,” the shaving expert warned.
She continued, “Second tip, make sure you change your razor head. You should change it every 5-10 shaves.
This allows for a clean shave with a sharp blade, which means your hairs will come out easily and painlessly.
The expert’s final tip was simply to moisturize after shaving to prevent your skin from becoming dry and irritated.
Razor experts recommend applying moisturizer to your skin immediately after shaving.
Estrid fans took to the comments section to share their appreciation for the simple tips.
“I wish I had seen this yesterday,” wrote one user.
Another person said: “I look at this when I’ve just used scented shaving cream and I’m sitting here thrashing and feeling uncomfortable.”
“I use an electric razor and then moisturize,” another follower said.
