Shaving and sensitive skin may not be the best of friends, but there are ways that you can practice shaving sensitive skin in a manner that is free of irritation. Prior to shaving your legs or other parts of your body, make sure that your skin is wet first, which gives the hair a chance to soften. Let your skin run under the warm shower or bath water for a few minutes, then apply shaving cream. It is important to use shaving cream because it helps the blade last longer, making the hair easier to remove.

In order to avoid the dreaded razor burn, you will want to shave in the direction of the hair growth. When shaving sensitive skin, be extra cautious around areas such as knees and ankles in order to avoid cuts and sudden nicks. Frequently rinse out your razor in order to get rid of the hair that accumulates under the blade. After shaving and showering, you should apply a body oil or soothing moisturizer to your skin in order to moisturize and replenish skin.
