How to shave if you have acne?

Shaving may sound like a simple skincare routine, but it can be a painful mess if you have troubled skin. Breakouts can make your skin irritated and the thought of running a razor on the broken skin isn't an ideal situation. So, what can you do? We gathered a few tips that will guide you. Here's how you should shave if you have acne:

1. Cleanse your skin

Before you shave your skin, first prep your skin by following a cleansing routine. Take a hot towel and place it on your face for some time. This will help to soften your skin and open the hair follicles.

2. Apply a shaving oil

Now, apply a shaving oil before the shaving cream. This will help to give you get a smooth shave, as the razor will glide easily without causing any nicks. Just apply a few drops of oil and massage the area properly.

3. Pick an alcohol-free shaving cream

If you have an acne-prone skin, pick a shaving cream which is free from alcohol or any fragrance. You should avoid creams with synthetic ingredients, as it can irritate your skin. Look for ones which are infused with natural oils.

4. Pick a good razor

If you have sensitive skin, pick a razor with a single blade. The razors with multiple blades will create more chances of irritating the acne. We can recommend you to try super comfortable a fingertip shaver from EVO Shave!

Make sure you clean your razor with an anti-bacterial lotion before and after.

5. Follow the hair growth

Make sure you follow the hair growth while shaving, this will help you get a smooth shave. It will ensure that you don’t mess with acne or cause more breakouts.

6. Lastly, rinse!

Once you’ve shaved, wash your face with lukewarm water. If it’s too stick, use a gentle cleanser. Now apply a soothing moisturiser or an after-shave lotion to soothe and hydrate your skin. Make sure the lotion is fragrant and alcohol-free.
