  • How to Get a Close Shave Without Irritation

    You like being smooth and stubble-free, but redness and razor burn can be a high price to pay for “bare-able” skin. Luckily, there are easy ways to treat that irritation — and to avoid it altogether by thinking ahead and employing some smart strategies. Here, insider tips to help you avoid redness and irritation every time.

    Assess the condition of your skin.

    Avoid shaving areas afflicted by red, irritated bumps from a previous session. Leaving them alone will help you avoid a cycle of pain, especially for tender areas such as the underarms.

    Give it time.

    Give your skin and hair some time to soften in the shower with the help of heat and moisture. Ample lather from shaving cream will also help hydrate your skin and lubricate the area, which minimizes trauma from the razor.

    Make as few passes as possible.

    You might often have been advised to shave in the direction of hair growth, but this doesn’t actually help you get a close shave. You can go against the direction of growth, but try to make as few passes with your razor as possible.

    Treat any irritated skin.

    If you notice irritation anywhere, apply a gel or lotion that contains aloe vera or calendula, which can help calm the skin. You can also use an over-the-counter cortisone cream to treat redness and irritation. If conditions are particularly bad, you might find immediate relief by putting cool washcloth compresses over the area

      Hey MedonaJames,

      Why don't you wear like sleeveless tops or tops which are not restricting on the underarms? And maybe you can apply aloe vera gel to it as well to soothe the irritation.
