It can be very irritating and annoying to shave when you have sensitive skin. If you aren’t careful, instead of having nice smooth legs or a handsome clean-shaven face, you will end up with a rash. Instead of wanting to show off your pretty legs or your handsome face, you’ll be wearing long pants or wishing you had a mask! It doesn’t have to be that way! Here are a few good tips to help people with sensitive skin shave without distress.
To keep your skin younger looking and more healthy, opt for using self-tanners and lotions instead of sitting out in the sun, or going to an indoor tanning salon. Whether it is natural or artificial sunlight, the UVA and UVB rays are still damaging to your skin. You can get that same look in the safety of a self-tanning cream or lotion without the damaging side effects.
Protecting your skin from the sun is a great way to take care of your skin. When your skin is exposed to the sun, you may end up with wrinkles, freckles, and age spots. You should always try to use sunscreen if you are going to be in the sun.
Rosacea is a skin condition that affects millions of people, causing redness and bumpy patches. If you have Rosacea, the watchwords should be: First, do no harm! Rosacea leaves the skin extremely tender and susceptible to further redness. So, when washing, for example, use a non-soap cleanser and never scrub. Just wash with the fingertips in a lightly circular motion.
If you regularly wear sunglasses or prescription glasses, clean them once a week or more. Dirt and grime can get caught between the crevices, and on the bridge, of your glasses. The end result might be bacteria formation on your skin and clogged pores. Take some soap and water and clean the bridge of the glasses to rid yourself of any residue.
Dry skin can be great in your youth because you do not suffer from acne as much. When you are older, it is important to take better care of your dry skin so you don’t get premature wrinkles. Exfoliate your skin to keep it fresh. When you use an exfoliating scrub, it takes off dead skin and allows new skin to regenerate, helping prevent wrinkles.
Many men like to use one “soap” product for their entire body. They want it to wash their hair, their face and their body. These soaps are often filled with deodorants and chemicals. For your face, make sure you are using a natural product that is designed especially for delicate skin.
By following these tips, you can shave your sensitive skin without mayhem! It may take a little longer to proceed with caution and handle with care, but these steps will result in a shaving experience that is pleasant and comfortable, as opposed to traumatic. You will surely be a lot happier with your shaving results when you can feel proud to show your face or legs in public!
