How to prevent razor burn.

Scraping steel against your face on the regular? Here’s how to do it without dealing with any damage.

The breakdown
  1. First, wash your face

    Washing your face before shaving will clear out any of the dirt and debris that’s lodged in your pores—a leading cause of ingrown hairs.

  2. Shave with the grain

    Shaving against the grain will cause your facial hair to regrow in weird ways—like curled into your skin (hello, ingrown) creating painful razor bumps.

  3. Use a toner

    Follow your shave with an alcohol-free toner. This will soothe your skin and keep your pores clear of anything that might cause an ingrown.
