Shaving Tips For Sensitive Skin

If you experience razor burn or nicks and cuts when shaving, read on to see tips for shaving sensitive skin, and start enjoying a smoother, more comfortable shave


Properly prepare your skin:

Use a face wash or facial scrub, such as Fusion® ProSeries™ Irritation Defense Soothing Face Wash, to help soften facial hair before you shave. You also should hydrate skin with warm water for at least three minutes to further soften your facial hair and make it easier to cut.

Start with the right tools:

Use a nondrying, dermatologist-tested shave gel, such as Fusion ProGlide® Sensitive Shave Gel, to soften hair and help defend your skin against nicks and cuts. Also, use an advanced multiblade razor that has blades spaced closer together, such as Fusion ProGlide Power Razor with FlexBallTMTechnology, to help reduce pressure on each blade for more comfort and less irritation.

Check your blades:

Dull blades can lead to nicks and irritation. Change your blade when you experience tugging or discomfort. Or try a razor that features an indicator strip that will fade to white when you might no longer be getting an optimal shave.

Use good technique:

Shave with light, gentle strokes. Your razor should do the work, not you. Start shaving with the grain (in the direction of hair growth). Then if necessary, go against the grain for an even closer shave. A clean shaven look never goes out of style.

  Save the best for last:

Shaving your upper lip and around your mouth at the end of your shave will give the shave gel more time to soak in, further softening your facial hair and making it easier to cut. Also, a single blade is really useful for shaving the tricky places, such as under your nose. Get shaving tips for oily or acne prone skin.

Rinse your blade frequently:

Rinsing the blade often throughout your shave prevents buildup on the blade edges and cartridge, and will result in better glide and more comfort.

Protect your face and neck:

After shaving, rinse skin with cool water and pat it dry. Then use a hydrating aftershave lotion, such as Fusion ProSeries Intense Cooling Aftershave Lotion, to cool and moisturize your skin.
