I’ve read that to reduce irritation one should shave in the direction of hair growth. Would that mean shaving the legs downwards? I’ve had a huge chronic problem with itchy legs.
I’m not a big fan of shaving with a blade in the direction of hair growth. You are better off using a good electric and that will result in less itching. I find using an electric gives a better shave than using a blade in the direction of hair growth.
If you use a blade use a good one like a Mach3 Turbo or Venus. They are definietly less irritating than other blades.
