Since you get all these shaving creams/ foams that are full of chemicals.. what can you use for shaving cream to prevent getting a rash/ sore skin? Is there anything natural that does the same thing? 

Thank yooooou!

i find using cold water very effective.  warm or hot water opens your pores up.

shave infrequently or not at all.

use soap and a shaving brush to apply the soap.

I like opening the pores so they don't constrict the hair. Otherwise, it's pretty uncomfortable.

if i am shaving a thicker beard i use a trimmer first to shorten the hair. also i usually shave after a hot shower so the pores are somewhat open. and if not after a shower i put a hot towel on my face for a minute.

but i use cold tap water to rinse the blade not hot water. been doing it this way for over 20 years never had any discomfort.

Sure, everything else would be a waste.

coconut butter and warm water 

dr bronner's soap

There are a few "cleaner" brands out there at health stores, but they still usually have some preservatives and emulsifiers that are better avoided. So, like a few others have said, natural soap such as dr. b's or really any vegetable oil (I've heard coconut oil is good) are great, simple and cheap options.:) 

after a hot shower and/or, splash with hot water, let sit for a minute to open up the pores.  shave with just a razor. (make sure it's a fresh blade, i go through about one razor a week) finish by splashing with witch hazel.  again with another splash of witch hazel if I get any nicks.  that's what I do.  been doing it that way for years.  works great.

before that, i lathered with bar soap before shaving.  also works well, but I found that it wasn't unnecessary, as long as my face was warm and wet, and the razor was sharp.

Are you talking about your legs, pubic hair, chest, pits, face, arms, back? You look like you might shave once a year so I would say just shave in the shower without any chemicals.

Another options is buy an electric. You don't look like you grow very much hair or thick hair so it should work pretty well. It takes a little while for your face to adjust to the electric blades but after that they work great. My problem has always been that I go through the blades too fast and they can get expensive compared to conventional razors.

I have to shave 5 times a week and its is probably the worst part of my job. I mostly shave in the shower with hot water and use some conditioner. Make sure you use new razors! I can't shave with disposables my hair is way too thick on my face. I use a Mach3, if I use a quad razor it sort of just gets stuck or clogged up.

I use olive and lavender soap for shaving and washing myself. Works like a charm. Stuff i use is made from old recipe which i said to be chemical free

I dont use creams on my face for shaving. I use an electric shaver. Less crap to throw in landfill.

I was wondering this myself. What kind of product of Dr. Bronner should one buy? What about electric shaving? What about the produce you put on after shaving to rehydrate the damaged skin?
