4.3. What are other practical tips for using my new razor correctly?

Tip to protect the skin

Use a pre-shave before you shave - this will help prevent blemishes and clogged skin pores.

At this point we have summarized the most important additional information about the correct use of razors.

  • You can usually use cordless e-shavers in the shower without damaging them. Take particular care not to drop the device into the bathtub.
  • If your shaver is connected to the mains (e.g. when charging the battery) you should under no circumstances use it with running water in order to avoid an electric shock. There is danger to life!
  • If you have particularly sensitive skin, you should not use a rotary razor and use a foil razor instead.
  • Brush your beard well before you start trimming it - You should loosen knots in particular before shaving. Use scissors if you have particularly thick hair.
  • Before shaving your beard, wash yourself with warm water to soften the skin and then with cold water to close the skin pores again after the work is done - in this way you prevent germs from penetrating.
  • After shaving your intimate area, do not forget to wash the entire area first with warm and then with cold water. If necessary, use an aftershave and, in the event of injuries or to disinfect, the betaisodona gel available without a prescription, which was specially manufactured for wounds of this type.
  • Avoid pressing out any pimples after shaving - these can ignite as germs penetrate more easily.
