I shave maybe once or twice per year, and while many of you will think "duh" to what I am about to say, let me say it. I don't recommend shaving all the way down to the skin. Take some scissors or electric razor and just trim the area every few months. Why? Having ingrown hairs from shaving all the way to the skin really sucks! And yes, I get ingrown hairs when shaving the correct direction! Am I wrong?
