If you have sensitive skin, then you must be careful not to offend it. The most insulting swipe is one with a reckless razor and an ill-prepared barber. We live in cities where the air is as clean as the ground and our skin soaks it in. The stores are packed with products which look friendly but are foes, conjured up in labs with chemicals.

Here’s what you should do

Buy a facial scrub with natural ingredients and apply it to your facial hair to soften. Hydrate the skin with lukewarm water for at least 2 minutes. The softer your facial hair is, the easier it is to cut with minimal fuss, friction and irritation.

Apply a non-drying dermatologist-tested shaving cream to double the protection, depending on how sensitive your skin really is. Before you go ahead and begin the barbering process (assuming you’re doing it yourself of course), ensure that your blades are sharp and not dulled through overuse. You may have to invest in more pricey razors but the damage to your pocket is far healthier than damage to your face — I assure you.
