1. Go for a clean shave, not a close shave
Aim to achieve a clean-shaven look, without spending too much time shaving or taking the hairs so short that they grow back into or under the skin. That’s when you get razor bumps and ingrown hairs. Think about shaving every other day, if your grooming needs allow.
2. Shave when and where it’s cooler
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.
