I use nivea aftershave balm for men, its the only thing which seems to stop me itching.

I'm telling you now, Sudocrem!!!

When I have back to back shoots and I have to keep shaving I literally smother myself in the stuff, stink like a bast*rd, and am happily rash free. Just wallop it on after you're done shaving. Works for me!

A bit of cream deodorant (dove or something like that) right after you've dried off - works a charm.

Shave with gentle hair conditioner, this keeps the skin mouisturised and apply sudocreme as suggested above works a treat on the bikini line I particular gets rid of lumps and bumps and the soreness

I get the same problem too and Ive been using rescue oil and it look so much better. Ive always used the best razors, best shaving gel and they dont seem to make much difference but the rescue oil has done wonders

a hot blade will also improve the efficiency of the shave

I was taught to shave dry using talcum powder. Used to take the back off the disposable razor to expose a very good Wilkinson Sword blade which was then used like a cut-throat. Yes, I am specifically talking pubic shaves. Have done hundreds of people like that and never had a problem.

I would suggest that eEven when using a brand new razor boil it in a mug of water before use.

The razor has been made in China, shipped to a port, spent 6 weeks on a ship, 2 months in a warehouse before it got to the shop.

Despite the packaging it may still need to be sterilized.

Also I use running hot water whilst shaving.

I never just use a sink on the basis that I would be cleaning the razor in dirty water and not getting rid of the bacteria.
