Shaving is the removal of hair, by using a razor or any other kind of bladed implement, to slice it down to the level of the skin. Shaving is most commonly practiced by men to remove their facial hair and by women to remove their leg and underarm hair. A man is called clean-shaven if he has had his beard entirely removed.
Both men and women sometimes shave their undercheek hair, chest hair, abdominal hair, leg hair, underarm hair, pubic hair or any other bodily hair. Head shaving is much more common among men. It is often associated with religious practice, the armed forces and some competitive sports such as swimming, running and extreme sports

Razor burn is an irritation of the skin caused by using a blunt blade or not using proper technique. It appears as a mild rash 2–4 minutes after shaving (once hair starts to grow through sealed skin) and usually disappears after a few hours to a few days, depending on severity. In severe cases, razor burn can also be accompanied by razor bumps, where the area around shaved hairs get raised red welts or infected pustules. A rash at the time of shaving is usually a sign of lack of lubrication. Razor burn is a common problem, especially among those who shave coarse hairs on areas with sensitive skin like the bikini line, pubic hair, underarms, chest, and beard. The condition can be caused by shaving too closely, shaving with a blunt blade, dry shaving, applying too much pressure when shaving, shaving too quickly or roughly, or shaving against the grain.
Ways to prevent razor burn include keeping the skin moist, using a shaving brush and lather, using a moisturizing shaving gel, shaving in the direction of the hair growth, resisting the urge to shave too closely, applying minimal pressure, avoiding scratching or irritation after shaving, avoiding irritating products on the shaved area (colognes, perfumes, etc.) and using an aftershave cream with aloe vera or other emollients. Also, it is good to prepare the skin for shaving by cleansing the area to be shaved with a wash containing salicylic acid, to facilitate the removal of oils and dead skin.[citation needed] Putting a warm, wet cloth on one’s skin helps as well, by softening hairs. This can also be done by using pre-shave oil before the application of shaving cream. One other technique involves exfoliating the skin before and after shaving, using various exfoliating products, included but not limited to, mitts and luffa. This process removes dead skin cells, reducing the potential for ingrown hairs and allowing the razor to glide across the skin smoothly decreasing the risk of the razor snagging or grabbing causing razor burn.

Karina says:

wow I never even thought that the amount of blades makes it worse! I always thought the more blades the better 0.o

Winston Churchill says:

Yep. I switched to a disposable 1 blade a while back and that did the trick. Expensive multi-blades are all marketing. Every year they add a blade. Just more razor burn.

Milton Tjin says:

DE shaving is definitely better! Proper lather and technique and a DE shaver will reduce/ eliminate the razor bumps! And you are spot on- cartridge shaving will irritate your face.

Lizzy S. says:

Great advice, thank you!

Silvio Pfeifer says:

Stop using this expensiv multi blade razors. use a Double Edge Razor and a good Shaving soap. This will save you money and you never have this problems.

Bu Jammy says:

– Very bad advice all round –
“If you have sensitive skin and don’t want bumps, go against the grain with a cartridge razor” (The #1, *best* way to get irritation & in-growing hairs). “If you have sensitive skin, pull on it” (Flattening, not pulling, works better, causes less irritation and is less likely to cause in-growing hairs). “Start with one blade and “work” your way “up” to more blades” (Even an ancient Bic disposable with one blade is better than a 6 blade razor. The more blades the more irritation, and, because of the way cartridge razors work – pulling the hair out and then cutting it – rather than shaving it off, you’ll be FAR more likely to get, you guessed it, in-growing hairs). All the advice in this video is piss poor. You would do well to avoid it. It’s an advertisement for products, you’de think they’de want someone who wouldn’t cause teenagers to damage their skin. Apparently not.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I used this electric razor

What did you do to get such a nice, smooth glowing skin?

huffy hunter says:

Thank u for the tips !

NろろT says:

I used to get really bad razor burn but it stopped after I started to use a stright edge on a daily basis for a few months, It helped my skin adjust to having a blade run across it. After that I was able to move onto a regular razor with no burn. Thought I’d just come here and share that to help anyone

TopHats Tavern says:

You never go against the grain if you face is sensitive. Now if you do have a more durable skin then it is fine to do if it doesn’t cause issues. However, for guys that do have sensitive, you go with the grain and the across the grain never against it.

Also, it depends on the quality of the blade some blades are bad and shouldn’t be used as he describes. I wouldn’t use a Bic razor like that I would only shave with never cross or against now if you are using a high-quality blade like a safety razor or straight razor with high-quality razor blades then the way he mentions then it shouldn’t be too much of an issue. Again, remember only go against if your face is not sensitive otherwise go with then across.

Grayson Morton says:

Will the bumps go away after a while

Pascal A says:

Description: resist shaving to close… aaaand i’m out ^^ i can’t resist shaving as close as possible. My DE Razor helps + Good shaving products but a little bit of burn in my neck will allways be there. Luckily it goes Away fast and it doesn’t itch. I will try the aspirin trick. Thanks for the Video:)

Harman P says:

I recently got razor burn on my legs, and let me just say it was red and quite itchy. I really recommend not trying to save your legs without water or shaving cream, because it will result to the annoying burns. I just tried to apply aloe Vera gel, which cools the area, and rubbed my legs with an ice cube in a cloth, and that really Helped!

Cj Iscool says:

the one blade makes it worse for me. the 5 is way smoother

Marcus Ellerbe says:


chris mcshaves says:

Safety razor or straight. 3 pass, no against. If daily shave, one pass with a sharp, smooth blade and a quality artisan soap or cream, not canned goo that doesn’t protect the skin as well and dries it out.

CmaC says:
