6. Do a warm water shave with shaving cream or gel
This is Shaving 101, but these products genuinely help prevent ingrown hairs. Avoid foam, as it dries you out. Use a clear gel if you’re sculpting around facial hair – good visuals can make the difference between a Handlebar and a Clark Gable. Decent electric shavers can do a wet or dry shave with no problem, and even work in the shower.
7. Don’t shave too close
Manual razors can do a lot of damage, especially if you press too hard. To get a shave that looks and feels close without massacring your skin, try an electric shaver. They have a cover over the blades that keeps them from going close enough to irritate or cut the skin, shielding you from nicks and helping to prevent ingrown hairs too. The Philips shaver series 7000 has comfort rings with additional anti-friction coating to keep things smooth.
8) Hydrate your face
Prevent ingrown hairs on your face by applying a decent aftershave balm or moisturiser.
9) Use the Philips shaver series 7000
Co-developed with dermatologists, the series 7000 is designed to provide a fully comfortable, close shave to even sensitive skin. The result of years of research, it’s proven to reduce razor burn, redness, and irritation. So if ingrown hairs are the bane of your life, it’s definitely for you. It can be used for a wet or dry shave, it’s washable, and it’s designed to glide smoothly over your skin – no cuts.
