When I shave, I get a razor burn which is really painful and looks awful. Is there anything I can do to prevent it?

Try this tip - before you put on your shaving cream or foam, use some shaving oil underneath and this will help the razor glide over the skin.

And don't forget to use a good quality razor. Change the blade frequently.

How to use an electric shaver

If you are a using an electric shaver for the first time, I hope that this article will get you going. Proper techniques will ensure the best, closest shave possible. Maintaining the razor by properly cleaning and recharging it will also ensure that the razor works correctly and does not malfunction during use. Proper care and maintenance of the electric razor will also ensure that the razor will last for years to come. Consider this article as a shaving-best-practices template for your first electric shaver.<br /> <br /> Firstly, clean your face and dry it. Electric shavers do a better job when your face is clean. Turn the electric razor on and begin shaving against the direction of hair growth, moving the shaving head linearly and in circles. Circular motion Stretch the skin with your other hand to make the hair stand up straighter so the razor blades shave closer.<br /> <br /> After shaving, turn it off and rinse the cutting heads under warm water. You can also use jet clean system once a week to clean your shaver. Make sure that you charge it for the time specified in user manual. Overcharging may cause damage to the battery.

My skin gets really itching after I shave. Is there anything I can do about it?

You can use natural shaving oil which is totally pure and natural. Natural shaving oil will reduce the chances of infection and also eliminate the problem of itching.
You can get a natural shaving oil from Beard Oil Canada, which is one of the reputed company which provide natural products made up of pure natural materials.

Does it matter what kind of razor I buy for shaving my legs? I tend to buy really cheap ones but keep getting red bumps on my legs. Is the razor the cause?

Cheap disposable razors tend to be straight and single bladed. I would really spend the money on a better quality razor that has multiple blades and a pivoting head. You can get specific women's razors and the good quality ones should last quite a while. This might make a big difference to you in cutting back on sores and red bumps.

Any tips for shaving my bikini line? Should I use a special gel or shaving foam?

Actually, what you lather on to your skin before you use the razor will make a big difference. Don't use regular soap.

Using a proper shaving foam can help moisturize your skin, give a smoother shave and help to prevent ingrowing hairs. It's worth spending the money on a proper product.

What is an electric shaver?

Not like shaving razors, electric shavers work by shearing the whiskers, the hair enters the perforated metal heads of the shaver and is cut by the moving blade inside.

How should I take care of a straight razor?

First you need to strop the razor on a daily basis, you should also horn your edge every once in a while. Moreover, you need to prevent corrosion from forming on your razor. In order to do so, you would need to rinse your razor after each use and allow it to dry properly. You should also keep the blade well lubricated after each shaving session.

Why should I shave with the growth direction?

The reason why you should shave with the hair growth is because there is less of a chance of nicks and cuts, and because it reduces the chance of ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Shaving with the hair growth tends to be a little easier on your skin as well.

I bought my husband a new senso touch razor i would like to know how they rate with other shavers also are they hard to clean

Hi cuke693,

I work for Philips Consumer Lifestyle and received a Senso Touch 1180X/40 for free as part of a Home Test. I have never been a fan of electric razors because of incredibly sensitive skin and fast growing facial hair. I do however, use the Senso Touch 1180X/40 in between shaves with a manual razor, and I am very happy with it. It doesn't irritate my skin, the shave is very close, and use/care is easy and ideal. I also like the fact I can use it safely and comfortably in the shower, too.

Depending on the model you have, you can find great resources at Just enter the specific model number to access the product specific page which includes FAQ's, manuals, videos, chat, etc. (

As for cleaning, these are the instructions for the 1180X/40 (again, for model specific information, visit the above website):

Regular cleaning is important to maintain an optimal shaving result.

1. Turn the shaver on.
2. Rinse the shaving unit under a hot tap.
3. Pull the top part of the shaving unit from the bottom part.
4. Rinse the bottom and top part under a hot tap for 30 seconds.
5. Reassemble the shaving unit and carefully shake off excess water. Let the shaving unit dry completely.
