I have the most sensitive skin in the world I feel like when it comes to shaving! It didn’t matter what razor I used or what shaving cream I used. I always would get razor burn! Those annoying little red bumps that itch so bad!
I finally have found a routine for shaving that keeps my skin happy, soft, and healthy! Luckily for getting a spray tan at a knowledgeable tanning salon. They gave me advice for shaving to protect my spray tan not even knowing it would help with razor burn too! So I have to say, if you are looking for a tanning salon or red light therapy in Marysville, the Sun Factory is the place to go!
Here is the system that I use that helps my skin more than anything else I have ever tried!
Step 1- Get in the shower and wash my body off first thing. That way you don’t get soap on you after you shave and have sensitive skin.
Step 2- Exfoliate!!! Everywhere you are going to shave needs to be exfoliated to get all the dead skin off. My favorite exfoliating soap is Hempz Age Defying Body Wash. Make sure you wash it all off! This step will help with ingrown hairs!
Step 3- Time to shave! Now this might be surprising but when I went in for my spray tan they told me to shave with hair conditioner to prolong the tan. I had no idea it would be the most amazing shaving lotion ever!!! I used my Revitalize Conditioner by MONAT which is anti-aging, infused with rejuvenique oil, and is vegan/gluten free! It is non-toxic which is important to me when I am putting it on my sensitive skin.
My favorite razor to use is the Venus Comfort Glide Razor. It shaves so smoothly and is great on my sensitive skin. I won’t shave with anything but this razor! Make sure your using a sharp and clean razor to prevent irritation. Always rinse your razor off after each use. I only use my razor once or twice before switching to a new blade.
Step 4- Rinse off the rest of the conditioner and then that’s it for in the shower!
Step 5- After you dry off the next step is to use my all time favorite product, rejuvenique oil from Monat. This oil is a blend of 13+ natural plant and essential oils rich in omega fatty acids, antioxidants and nutrients highly compatible with the skin and hair.
I rub this oil on after I am done shaving like an after shave. I think this makes the biggest difference in my shaving routine! It is so refreshing to put this on after I shave!
The last tip I can give to avoid razor bumps and burns is to put on loose clothing afterwords. Your skin needs to be able to breathe and get air after you shave. Do not get a pedicure or a spray tan or anything put on your skin right after shaving. I would wait 1 day to be safe and avoid irritation.
I hope this helps!
