So as the title says, I've been shaving with a DE since the beginning of fall and am still having trouble with one thing in particular. I get a lot of irritation, especially on my neck about 24-72 hours after shaving. Because of the irritation I usually shave about every 3+ days. I feel like the irritatation comes from blade irritation and ingrown hairs combined.
I recently went a week without shaving, which is the longest I've ever gone. Since my face had a full week to recover I got a really close, easy shave and no irritation. So what can I do in order to get a comfortable shave every 2-3 days instead of 7+ days?
