Shaving is a method for removing unwanted hair. The most common form of shaving is by using an electrical or manual razor. With razor blades, the hairs are cut close to the skin surface. Shaving can lead to ingrown hairs or razor bumps, so-called pseudofolliculitis. It can help to shave hair when it’s wet, only shave in the direction of the hair growth or use a soothing cream to reduce skin irritation and cuts.
