12 Best Electric Razors to Prevent Ingrown Hair

First, start with cleansed skin. With most electric razors, you can shave wet or dry. “If using a dry razor, towel dry, apply soft pressure and pass the razor over the skin,” says Dr. Kagha. “Electric razor systems are either rotary or foil, with most electric razors designed for women being foil. With rotary electric razors, the razor is moved in a circular motion to obtain the closest shave. For foil electric razors, the razor is passed in a back-and-forth motion.”

Dr. DiAnne Davis, a dermatologist based in Dallas, Texas, says that it’s best to shave in the direction of your hair, rather than going against the grain. This will prevent irritation and ingrown hairs.
