Alcohol can be very irritating to your skin and can cause razor burn. If you find yourself left with irritated legs after shaving, check the product that you are shaving with to see if there’s any alcohol in it. If there is, switch to something that has milder ingredients.
Don’t Shave An Irritated Area For A While
This may seem like a no brainer, but you shouldn’t shave an area that is irritated until it has fully healed. Many people tend to get razor burn because they keep shaving over an area that is irritated. Instead, wait until the area no longer has any irritation before you shave it again.
