Don't forget hot water. Seriously, soak a rag in water as hot as you can stand, then rest lay it on your skin. Every few minutes as the rag starts to cool off, wring it out and soak it in the hot water again and reapply. After about ten minutes of this, your skin will be hot and your pores wide open.

This is how old-time barbers would do those really close, super smooth face-shaves that last for days.

I use those electric hair clippers and it's the best idea I've ever had. It may not be a smooth shave considering it leaves about 1 or 2 centimeters of hair but it's a thousand times better than razor burn!

Baby powder can cause infections and also increases your risk of getting cancer. Bad idea.

As everyone else has said, over-the-counter products and even conditioner works okay. Honestly, I have found time to be the only thing that makes it better. The longer you do it, the more your skin gets used to it - will definitely be trying the hot compress though!

#8 is right. I use Dove for sensitive skin. It should be fine if the OP has small abrasion but not huge gashing cuts. I've even used Chapstick for paper cuts before and that worked great.
