Shaving every day in the summer can be a real drag. A good shaving strategy can simplify the process.
  • Make sure hair is thoroughly wet first.
  • Avoid repeating strokes.
  • Keep skin relaxed while shaving.
  • Shave in the direction of the hair. Going against the grain gets a closer shave, but it tends to cause irritation and ingrown hairs.
  • In places where hair grows in different directions and in hard-to-reach areas, such as underarms and the bikini area, try pulling the skin slightly, making it more taut and easier to shave.
  • Try using a shave-minimizing moisturizer after you shave. It may reduce hair growth.
  • Minimize ingrown hairs. Skincare experts recommend buying a specialized product made with aspirin, an anti-inflammatory, which decreases the likelihood of shaving bumps caused by ingrown hairs. Several treatments are available in drugstores to help eliminate bumps, ingrown hairs and razor burns.
