Now, this is gonna be a shocker we know, but hacking away at your skin with a plastic razor and tossing it in the corner isn't doing you any favors. Shaving with a single-blade razor isn't dramatically different, it's simply shaving to take care of your skin.
- Shave at the end of your shower so your skin & hair are soft.
- Apply our shave gel-to-milk because it’s stunning, it works, and it lasts. Just sayin’
- Shave. If your skin is particularly sensitive, shave in the direction of hair growth.
- Keep your skin moisturized (we've got a thing for that) between shaves- it helps to prevent ingrown hairs.
- Store your razor in a dry area. I know, so sorry to share that tidbit but it is also recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology. Bacteria and skin don’t play nicely together.
- Change your blades after 5-7 uses. Again, recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology. We know it’s standard to hold onto blades til it feels like you’re shaving with a butter knife, but it does no good by your skin.
