3. Use a soft face brush
To clean and exfoliate, try using a soft-bristled face brush to eliminate dead skin cells and clear follicles to allow hairs to surface unimpeded. It also prepares the skin for shaving and raises stubble to help prevent razor bumps. If you have ingrown hairs, it helps dislodge them.
Shaving is a hot bathroom or during the heat of the day can make razor burn worse. Try shaving in the evening to give irritable skin a chance to recover overnight.
