Shaving - Prevent irritation

Recommended Posts

Ok, i don't know if this has already been mentioned before, but I have noticed a great way to shave with acne! I personally have fairly flat acne, making it slightly easier for me to shave, but still if i do not do it the right way, these flat spots raise, and become inflamed and saw!

Anyway... getting to the point.

When i shave, i use Tea tree facial wash all over my face, and with a simple razor, i shave normally. The only difference with this way and normal shaving is that you aren't using shaving foam, but using the Tea tree facial wash as a sustitute.

I do not know if this is bad for the skin or what ever, but i have been doing this for months now and found that this technique works great!

Give it a go and i am looking forward to your feedback on this way of shaving!

Thanks for reading!

From what I understand certain essential oils are good for moisturizing, some have antibacterial properties, and they tend to be non comedogenic, though I am sure not all of them are. I have not tried this specifically, but in searching about the essential oils ina product I use I did come across tea tree oil as a good soothing option. I personally have recently started using this Solar Recover product by Zausner which has other essential oils and vitamin e in a nice body mist. It is all ogranic and seems to be very gentle and good for soothing as well. though it doesn't seem to moisturize much.
