You should use mach 3 razors they are 3 blades and is good for close shaves they might have something similar to that in the u.s or this product may be available. I would recommend you massage a face wash for about a minute before you start to shave which will make your skin smooth and ready for shaving you can also get various shaving creams and gels which are good. For after the shave i recommend a face moisturiser apply only a small amount and make sure the lotion is not a thick cream runnier lotions are better.

Using alcohol after shaving maybe irritating the skin even further. Try using something like aloe vera gel or juice instead and see how you go. Also, using a light moisturiser can also help. BTW what do you use the shave with? - foam, gel, oil etc?

Try Jack Black Beard Lube, which you can get at Sephora. Just make sure you buy the kind in the tube-like container--not the round jar. I swear, my boyfriend will not shave unless he has that stuff. I bought it once for him for going into Sephora with me and he's totally addicted.

1. Take a HOT shower for a while to get the steam to open up your pores and hair follicles.
2. Then after the shower, use Neutrogena Skin Clearing Shaving Cream, thin layer
3. Then use either Gillette Sensor Excel which is a two blade razor or a one blade disposable razor, one to two blade razors shave the top surface of the skin without nicks and cuts on deeper levels of the skin. Three to Five blade razors go to the root of the hair follicles and cut it out and when thats done your skin grows over the follicle which blocks new hair growth causing an inflammation thus giving you razor bumps.

I ditto the steam method that LightenNlift mentioned. Try taking a damp hot/warm towel and applying it to your face before shaving. It will open up your pores and soften the hair to reduce irritation. Good luck!
