The guys at www.slybaldguys.com shave every day and have lots of tips and information about sensitive skin and other related topics. They are a very friendly and positive group. Oh, they shave the TOP side rather than the bottom side of their heads. But the tips should work on both ends.

Most days... depends, shaving is one of those ugggghhhh I have to do it again activities I hate
As I must shave on a daily basis, what I have found that works extremely well is to shave in the shower. Once you have wash your hair and body the steam of he shower will soften the bristle. At this point a bit of lather and shaving with the grain will leave you super clean. Afterward a bit of moisturizer will refresh the skin especially during the winter months.

Im a suit and tie guy for work as well so I shave everyday to be presentable. I have sensitive skin. Tried an electric shaver but it was not pleasant. Went back to the gillete razors and Nivea after shave lotion.

I shave everyday. I have sensitive skin and have the scars to prove it. What I've learned is to make sure I shave in the right direction with the hairs, use small strokes, rinse the blade often, and use a gel with aloe. This has made my face much happier!

I generally shave every week day because of work, but not on the weekend. However, I don't have a heavy beard. And I'm really bad about how I shave. I generally just spash my face with warm water, no shaving cream, take a few quick swipes with razor, and I'm done. It takes a little more effort on Mondays though.
I have to shave everyday because of work. I also have very sensitive skin. I found that if I use a razor and shaving cream that I end up irritating the skin so much it starts bleeding. I ended up buying a Braun Series 7 electric razor. Had tried several electric razors before this one an all of them irritated my skin. The Braun is around $200.00 but very well worth it. It allows me to shave daily without any irritation at all.
During the week I shave every other day and usually skip on the weekends if the wife will let me get away with it...lol.

Don't shave at the weekends, gives it time to recover! Try vitamin E oil in the evenings as well!

I had to shave every day of the 20 years I spent in the Air force, and the right side of my neck below my jaw was ALWAYS raw. I never did find any successful remedy, but I never tried Eucerin lotion. That might have done the trick. That was quite a while ago. Now that I'm retired, I shave my head and beard once every week or two. I'm almost 65 now, in a wheelchair with muscular dystrophy but still kicking! Probably a lot longer now that I've found SparkPeople! (And a good idea, since I have a son less than 3 years old.)
I can shave everyday but its so annoying so i usually skip a day and the weekends if I'm going out. The one day scruff look doesnt bother me but after the one day it comes off. sensitive skin here also and can only shave with the hair and not against it. I get all ripped up if i go against. does taht happen to anyone else?
It depends if nothing is happening I will shave every other day or so, I should shave every day but don't. My shaving consist of my neck and cheeks. I several scars on my face I have a beard to hide them. I too shave in the shower.
I shave in the shower and should do it every day but I usually skip a day. The steam from the shower helps.

I shave every day except sometimes I skip it on the weekend. I had tried electric, special shave creams and nothing seemed to help. Now I shave in the shower. I take a shower and at the end, lather up and shave. You face is really hydrated well in there and it is a lot better. After my shower I will rinse my face in the sink with cold water then put on some aftershave. I don't like the moisturizers because they make my face feel oily, but one should try them to see if they work for you!
I shave pretty much every day except Saturday (I want to look clean and tidy for work). Although my shadow is more gray and thus, a little less obvious if I skip a day. I do put a moisturizer on my face after I shave as I do have sensitive skin.
Well I don't think I have sesnsitive skin, but I am using a gillette fusion razer (good quality) and go for good shave gell. Also, if you don't have to shave for safety reasons (firefighter mask fitting etc) you can ask your dr for a note I suppose.
