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.

you could also consider laser hair removal since this would probably solve the problem. Unfortunately multiple treatments are necessary and the procedure does not always work
