Simple Tips for Smoother Shaving
Date:1/27/2013

SATURDAY, Jan. 26 (HealthDay News) -- Shaving can sometimes be rough, but there are ways for men and women to get a smooth shave with a minimum amount of skin irritation, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

Wet your skin and hair to soften it before you shave. Taking a shower or bath makes it easy. After you apply a shaving cream or gel, be sure to shave in the direction that the hair grows.

To minimize skin irritation, change razor blades or throw away disposable razors after five to seven shaves.

Men with acne need to take special care because skin irritation caused by shaving can make acne worse, according to the AAD. These men should experiment with electric or disposable blade razors to see which one works best for them. Razors should have sharp blades.

Use a light touch when shaving to prevent nicks and don't try to shave off acne, as both can make acne worse.

"If you have any questions about shaving, especially shaving acne-prone skin, see a board-certified dermatologist," Dr. Thomas Rohrer, a dermatologist in Chestnut Hill, Mass., said in an AAD news release. "Treating an underlying skin condition, such as acne, can go a long way in reducing irritation caused by shaving."
