So i was having a shave the other day and admittedly, i had left it a little long, usually i shave every other day or every third day at the most, but i had left it for about 4 or 5 days and it was starting to look kinda stupid (in my opinion, some people can pull off that look really well but i don't think i can, plus it gets kind of itchy).

So anyway, i went about my usual routine when having a shave, i filled the basin, put some shaving foam on my face and started shaving, usually i do the neck and under the chin first, followed by the cheeks, then finally the moustache and chin, so the neck was fine, but then when i started on the cheeks, it started to feel like it was dragging at the hairs and was kind of painful, i have left it a while without shaving before but this is the first time in a long time it happened, the razor wasn't blunt as the other cheek was fine.

So what i want to know is, have you guys ever had this and if you have, how do you ensure it dosen't happen?

TL;DR- had a shave the other day, it started scratching (my face), how do you stop this?
WHOMP

New razor, shave more often, try using gel instead of foam, suck it up and be a man about it.

Sometimes it just gets caught on itself and gives a temporary rash, nothing you can do about it...

Fight through the pain man :P

And if that doesn't do the trick you're going to need a strimmer, edger, mower and shears.

Its just your razor, or you have a chuck noris like beard that can only be shaved with a diamond plated chainsaw.

I use a brush and soap cake instead of instant foam, it's a little less messy. Anyway, use a wet warm cloth on your face first to soften the hairs prior to applying foam/soap then shave. If you hairs are longer, you'll need to rinse the blade between every stroke to avoid it clogging up.
Moving on.....

Tap that?


EDIT: Also, try using gel, get a new/better razor. Or an electric one, though those are a little less accurate. Or give three days growth a chance (That's probably five or six days growth in your case I guess. Just trim a little and it'll look good. Well, works for me at least).

Hell no. Acoustic shaving is where it's at.


Only if you're indie, and everyone knows indie people don't shave their face.

I hate shaving, half the time I just take the safety guard off my beard trimmer, that gets it down to 1 or 2 day stubble look.

(I think I lose man-points though for not having facial hair.)

I used to shave some years back and my skin was less irritated when I used gel instead of foam.

Quote by wahappen

I mainly use gel, and when you lather it up, it pretty much just resembles regular shaving foam. Slightly denser, perhaps.
