Will try.

What about the addition of Apple Cider Vinegar, Aloe Vera, or Lemon Juice?

There are multiple things you should do.

1.) Use a good quality razor. This really helps.
2.) Put it somewhere dry after using it.
3.) Disinfect your razor with a dash of rubbing alcohol before use (razor burn/folliculitis can be caused by the bacteria infecting tiny cuts from shaving).
4.) Gently exfoliate your skin regularly, especially before shaving and when hair is growing back to prevent ingrowing hairs.
5.) Use a very generous lather. Let it sit for a few minutes before shaving.
6.) Always moisturize after you exfoliate, especially after you've just shaved.

Scratch them

Oh! And of course never shave dry, and shave WITH the grain of the hair, not against.
>>
>>16941130
but that means never getting as close of a shave
>>
>>16941138
That's true, but the closer the shave means the greater the chance of razor burn. So do against the grain at your own risk.

fuuuuck i don't want to have to choose between razor burn and a stubbly crotch
>>
>>16941070
wow that looks like herpes zoster

You might wanna have that checked out

Get laser hair removal

Don't shave against the grain. Just don't. Disregard that ultra smooth sensation, it's not worth the skin irritation as it's only going to last a few hours anyway.
Prepare your skin properly. Hot shower in your face, as hot as your face can bear. Let the shaving lather soak in properly, give it a few minutes.

And this might just be the most important advice:
Use a proper blade. And use a fresh blade every time you shave. That rules out disposable plastic razors and these Gillette Mach3/fusion/whatever as they are either too shitty (plastic ones) or simply too expensive to be disposed every time (Gillette etc.).
That means you either use straight razors (which is what I do) or you use Double Edge blades. Buy Feather (from Japan) or Derby (from Turkey) blades. These are probably the best blades out there and even though they are the most expensive double edge blades, they are still dirt cheap compared to these Gillette cartridge blades.

That's herpes, not razor burn, folliculitis, or acne.

For the love of god do NOT use lemon juice. It's bad enough on its own, but to use it to shave is probably worse. You'd need something moisturizing, basically shaving cream replacement.

Try shaving with the grain first then rinse your face and shave against the grain. It always works for me.

Wet shaving.
Nothing is as good as the trusty stick/bowl and boar

I went with a double-edge safety razor. Watch some good Ytube vids on shaving preparation and shaving properly. Getting rid of my Mach 3 made a huge difference.
