Tips and information about the modern multi-blade cartridge razor

How Do I Prevent Razor Irritations When I Shave With a Cartridge Razor?

I use Gillette or Wilkinson razor blades. I often suffer from irritation during and after shaving. How can I prevent this?

  • Replace Dull Blades: Do not use dull blades. Replace the razor blade in time to prevent skin irritation.
  • Choose the Right Number of Blades: Use a 3-blade razor instead of a 5-blade for less irritation.
  • Cleanse With Care: First cleanse your face with a pH-neutral cleansing gel instead of regular soap that can dry out the skin.
  • Pre-Shave Products: Use a pre-shave oil or gel for extra protection while shaving.
  • Take your time: Let shaving cream or shaving soap sit for at least 1 minute to soften the beard hairs.
  • Shaving direction: Shave only in the direction of hair growth to avoid irritation.
  • Calm Movements: Make calm and gentle movements while shaving.
  • After Shave Balm: Use a nourishing and soothing after shave balm after shaving.

Shaving with the modern razor does not feel pleasant to me. What am I doing wrong?

I use Gillette or Wilkinson razor blades. While shaving it seems as if the razor blades are pulling out my beard hairs. How can I prevent this?

  • Blade Type: The modern 3-blade or 5-blade razor can lift and then shave beard hairs, which can lead to ingrown hairs and skin irritations.
  • Dull Blades: Replace dull blades in time to prevent pulling on the hair.
  • Facial cleansing: Use a pH-neutral cleansing gel before shaving instead of regular soap.
  • Pre-Shave Treatment: Consider using a pre-shave oil or gel for extra protection.
  • Shaving time: Give shaving foam time to work and soften the hair before you start shaving.
  • Shaving technique: Use calm and gentle movements while shaving for a comfortable experience.
