When you shave, do you go against the grain? I'm always afraid I will get nicked or irritated skin/hair if I do that.

I shave with the grain (with cream), then when I'm done, dry shave against the grain.

Always shave with the grain first, then against. But I don't shave every day, but every other day.

I go down, then to the left, then to the right. I never go up.

You get rid of a lot of hair going against

With the grain first, then against the grain to get it closer. No pain.

I use a Norelco. Works fine for me against the grain.

If it burns try a light sprinkle of talcum powder.

It depends on what I'm shaving

It is the only way I can get a clean, smooth shave. But I also exfoliate the more gentle areas after shaving until the hair is back through the skin and moisturize anywhere not armpit so that probably helps.

If I shave against the grain, I'm miserable for the next two or three days.
