How to avoid razor burn?
1. Use clean materials
Using clean materials is most important. When your shaver head is dirty, it won't shave properly. Secondly, you also make your skin dirty, since your old shaver head is full of old skin flakes and bacteria. This causes red spots, razor burn, and pimples after shaving.
2. Trim your beard
Always check how long your beard is before you start shaving. We recommend you trim your beard beforehand. Shaving your long beard hair with an electric shaver may hurt or cause skin irritation. Don't have a trimmer? It also helps to carefully shorten your beard with small scissors.
3. Wash your face
Wash your face with warm water before you start shaving. This will open your pores and bring your beard hairs forward. The warm water also softens them. The softer the beard hairs are, the easier they are to shave. Moreover, the water provides your skin with a first protective layer.
4. Don't press too hard
Make sure you never put too much pressure on your skin. Electric shavers often have a flexible head that follows the contours of your face and jawline. It's never necessary to press your skin too hard. You should also never shave for too long in the same spot. This causes skin damage.
5. Take care of your skin afterwards
Don't ignore your skin once you're done shaving. The post-shave treatment is just as important as shaving itself. You can pull out ingrown hairs and wipe your face with a cold towel, so your pores will close and your skin will calm down. Afterwards, aftershave or day cream without alcohol are good ways to hydrate your skin and reduce the chances of irritation.
