Razor Burn - How to Avoid it with Sense Beautiful Science

Razor burn. It's painful and it's ugly. Todays post is short and sweet with a few tips for the fellows on how to avoid this common problem while pampering their skin the easy way. Guys also have sensitive skin and that's why I recommend  Sense. Compounded with irritating products it can make shaving for them painful. Here are 4 easy steps to change the game.

1. Exfoliate

Dead skin and ingrown hairs are the chief culprits in contributing to razor burn. Preparing your skin before you shave is critical. The Sense Rice Bran polisher has papaya enzymes that help gently lift off dead skin. The gentle rice barn beadlets finish the job without damaging the epidermis while adding Vitaman E to heal. Try leaving it on for a few extra minutes after gently massaging all over your face and neck. Rinse off.

2. Shave Soap Free

Next use the Sense Nourishing Body Gel. It's soap free  (and paraben free) so won't clog your pores. It contains botanicals that help protect from free radical damage. My friend Ray uses it all the time and it has come to replace his traditional shaving cream.  It has a great citrus scent so you won't have to worry about smelling sweet. You can also try using the Nourishing Conditioner in place of shaving cream as well. Be sure to use a clean razor and clean it often during the shaving process. Leaving it in the shower can become a home for bacteria. Store it in a dry place.

3. Tone Don't Burn Your Skin
Hydrating Toner

Instead of using irritating after shave that can sting and burn, be good to your skin and soothe it with Sense Hydrating Toner. It contains green tea and grape seed extract to soothe as well as clary sage that helps bring the skin back to a balanced ph and closing enlarged pores. Whether your skin is oily or dry and flaky,  it will help your shaving experience over the long run.

4. Moisturize and Protect

Serum Intensive for Oily Skin

Now that you have shaved your skin and removed some layers in the process, protect that handsome face of yours with either the Daytime Protective Emulsion.  If your skin tends to be oily  use either the Serum Intensive or Perfecting Essence. It's important to protect your face from the pollution that we encounter on a daily basis in the form of smoke, smog and even stress. A well protected and  hydrated skin is important to keep diseases at bay that can enter the body through openings.
