SHAVING WHEN you have sensitive skin isn’t something to look forward to, but unless you want to grow a beard (which we fully support), it’s something you have to do at least once per week, depending on your hair type and texture. Often, the experience leaves you with all sorts of issues (razor bumps, razor burn, cuts) and can even make other problems worse (dryness, breakouts, over exfoliation). But what choice do you have? If you love the clean-shaven look, the irritation that comes along with shaving your face is something you’ve been forced to accept in the past, but not anymore.

If you have sensitive skin, changing your razor to one made for your skin type might make all the difference. These new shaving tools are (mostly) designed specifically for use on sensitive skin and use all sorts of things like guards, gels and even computer chips to help get a close shave without the burn. And while it’s generally believed that single-blade razors are necessary to cut down on razor bumps and skin issues, there is something here for every preference. Below, check out the best razors for sensitive skin.
