i have this bad habit of constantly rubbing my face when i've two-day stubble, and after a while it starts to irritate my skin...
then, when i go to finally shave it off, it's a bit painful and leaves me a bit raw.
i use warm water, gilette shaving gel, a sensor excel, and afterwards i use nivea after-shave balm.
maybe the ladies also have suggestions for me, but i'm wondering, aside from the obvious suggestion (stop rubbing my face, which i am trying to do), what is the best way and/or what are the best products to use to keep my face from getting irritated when i shave?
i'm even willing to use feminine products (i don't really care) as long it will help with the stinging, raw feeling my face is left with.
