Girls, I have really sensitive skin and every time I shave my skin really gets irritated and bleeds, no matter where I shave, I have shaved with everything possible but still I havn't find anything that works well and that doesn't irritate my skin so much, any idea girls? what could I use? any special make? any tips so it won't get so irritated? Any help will be helpful, it's a real hell every time I need to shave, and that's often :S, thanks in advance :)
Make sure you clean your razor,in hot water and even with some alcohol or anti bacterial gel,because bacteria can build up and then irritate your skin.Also make sure you use warm water to shave and also I'm not sure of where you live,but there is a product called TriShave and you use it while shaving and it stops you from getting red bumps.I find it really helps.I've also heard of a product called Oliveology and it's just olive oil and they've made it so you can just shave with it..You could check those out :).If there is something you want to shave with,make sure it has no alcohol in it,as that can also irritate the skin.
Maybe you could just try an electric shaver I have never felt any irritation or have ever cut myself with that but it just takes longer sometimes. It seems to make your skin feel smoother too. I would suggest getting some after shave lotion too. I don't know if girls have as many choices as guys though.
Usually I try to shave after a hot shower. The hot water relaxes the skin. Plus you could try shaving in the direction of the hair so there won't be much resistance. You won't get a very close shave but it avoids razor bumps and knicks.
A fresh razor cuts cleaner but you have to make sure you don't cut on an angle. If you still have problems, you might want to check out waxing instead.
