Taking care of your skin while shaving
If you have sensitive skin, there are specially-formulated gels that are alcohol- and dye-free. Shaving creams and shave gels can also condition skin to prevent razor bumps and irritation. There are even razor bump treatments to help relieve the inflammations shaving can cause.
From pre-shave to aftershave
In addition to aftershave, it's a good idea to use a pre-shave gel to help prepare your skin for shaving, especially if you have sensitive skin. Pre-shave lotions help prepare your beard and mustache making it easier to shave and often allowing for a closer shave. Pre-shave oil can help lessen friction and minimize irritation if used in conjunction with a good razor and pre shave product.
