Shaving Wet Rather Than Using an Electric Razor
For people with psoriasis, shaving can be a difficult and uncomfortable task. However, choosing the right type of razor and shaving technique can help to minimize irritation and reduce the risk of exacerbating psoriasis symptoms. One strategy that may be helpful is to shave wet using a traditional razor, rather than using an electric razor. Wet shaving allows for a closer shave and may be less likely to cause skin irritation than electric shaving. It is important to use a sharp razor and to be gentle when shaving, as pressing too hard or using a dull blade can cause skin damage and worsen psoriasis symptoms. It is also important to follow up with a moisturizing lotion or oil after shaving to soothe and hydrate the skin.
