Tip #1 - Shave in the shower. Warm water exfoliates and softens your hair. Also, don't make shaving the first thing you do in the shower. Allow time for your leg hair to soften and your follicles to open.
Tip #2 - Take your time [and use a mirror for your face] to prevent accidental cuts. Rushing through shaving only increases your risk for cutting yourself, especially around the knees, where psoriasis loves to flare up.Tip #3 - Use a quality razor. A multiblade razors to help reduce cuts and irritation. Look for a razor specifically designed for sensitive skin and razor bumps.
Tip #4 - Replace your shaving blades often. A dull razor leads to bad results. Some people use disposable razors to ensure they always have a fresh blade.
Tip #5 - Use a shaving creams vs a gel which are often alcohol-based.
Tip #6 - Shave in the direction of the hair. Shaving against the grain may get you a closer shave, but that’s also how you can irritate your skin.
Tip #7 - Moisturize after shaving. Kenkoderm Psoriasis Moisturizing Cream promotes healing and improve the appearance of compromised skin for long-lasting relief from the negative impact of psoriasis on daily life.
