What shaving cream ingredients should I avoid?

Certain shaving product ingredients may cause irritation in people with sensitive skin. However, skin irritation may also be a result of improper shaving technique. Always wet your beard first and don't shave against the grain. Don't stretch your skin as you shave; let it relax. When you finish, applying aftershave that contains a moisturizer can help relieve skin irritation. Talk to your dermatologist about which shaving product is right for you.
