How can shaving wet help with managing psoriasis?

ANSWER

Use a shaving cream or lotion made for sensitive skin and buy a good razor that follows the contours of your skin. Shaving wet instead of using an electric razor on dry skin is gentler on patches. Afterward, make sure to moisturize. You may find that skipping a day between shaves is easier on your skin.
