Finding the right shaving razor for sensitive skin could be a daunting task as it takes multiple tries before you can get it right. But first, how do you know if have sensitive skin?
Signs of sensitive skin
More often than not, men with sensitive skin do not even realise that their skin is more susceptible to environmental triggers. For example, an unsuitable shaving cream, fragrance or skincare product can easily cause your skin to act up and sting. And before you know it, you’ve developed a nasty, red rash.
The same goes for shaving sensitive skin. One wrong move and you’ll end up with inflamed skin that can end up insanely itchy. To minimise such occurrences, it’s important to know how to shave the right way [hyperlink story], as well as the products and tools work for you. For example, you should never use shaving products that contain menthol, as they may further irritate your skin.
Here are our recommended list of razors -- from electric to disposable -- that work well for men who are sick of suffering.
