#3. USE A FRESH BLADE TO SHAVE
“A blade that’s been used for a week or more is really not going to get you kind of quality shave that you want,” Dr. Benabio says, adding that the sharpness of the blade you use directly increases or decreases the likelihood of having irritation and razor-burn after shaving. Two options for a no-fuss close shave with lasting blades: the manual Fusion razor ($9) and Merkur Heavy Duty Double Edge Razor ($43). One’s for dudes on a budget, the other is for guys who can afford to splurge. Both will get the job done right.
#4. CHOOSE YOUR SHAVE GELS WISELY
Dove Men+Care Hydrate + Shave Gel ($5) produces a rich lather that helps prevent irritation caused by shaving. Another option is Plum Island Soap Company’s Spicy Shave Gel ($7), made with essential oils to revitalize your skin and leave it feeling soft and smooth.
