Why it hurts so much if you put lemon on your face after shaving?

I’ve tried it once….. and it's super painful. Anyone had similar x-perience?

  • because lemons have citric acid in them and after you shave you have open pores and often times little cuts (that you may not even see) so the acid irritates those exposed parts of skin

  • Because shaving creates tiny cuts in the surface of your skin. It always hurts to put lemon juice on a cut. Don't be doing that, ya dingus!

  • Lemon has zinc in it. Even if you didn't shave and put lemon on your face it'll sting.

  • Ah well then I have another one for you... Magnesium oil! It stings even when your skin isn't sensitive. Spray it on a shaving cut and you'll go straight up to heaven my man!
