Options: Only shave after taking a bath or shower so that your skin is hydrated. Liberally apply a high quality shaving gel, and only shave in the direction of hair growth (not against). Use a high quality multi blade razor, and replace it frequently. If this does not eliminate the problem see your dermatologist for additional prescription options.
