Shaving When You Have Sensitive Skin

Many of my clients tell me (before I shave them) that they have sensitive skin. The first thing I ask is if their skin reacts to certain products that are applied to their skin. If their answer is yes, then I keep this in mind with the products I use during the shave. But, 9 times out of 10, they answer is no, that the irritation occurs after they shave themselves.

How To Stop Razor Burn For Good!

Razor burn... Just saying the words make me angry! Why? Because it should never happen to me or anyone else.
