Now that I finally got a ripped chest! How do I shave without getting the bumps in a few days? (That’s what happened last time I did this)

Definitely recommend you use baby oil in the shower right after you shave. I use it all over my body for that silky smooth feeling
I'm not a fan of putting rubbing alcohol on anything after I shave.

You may want to consider waxing as an alternative or perhaps a Nair type product for men. Nair will last longer and Waxing much longer. Tou will also avoid the problem of razor bumps.

Second best is Kwik Off for Men. Its like Nair. If you use it though, stay away from your nips cause if it gets on it will burn like hell.

I rinse my razor in alcohol, and rub it on after I shave, then follow it up w/ baby oil. worked wonders for me

make sure you are using a shaving cream/gel..even conditioner can work in the shower....i am amazed at how many guys dry shave and are surprised they have problems....follow up with a good salicylic acid/bha product....tendskin could work but has a lot of alcohol...you can find that at walmart, clearasil daily face moisturizer would be good..you can use it anywhere..and also http://paulaschoice.com/shop/product...205&PAGETYPE=S
an excerpt from the mentioned webpage explains that salicylic acid/aspirin is a good product to use:
" What should men use to take care of their skin when they shave?
To start with, all men need a gentle, water-soluble cleanser, a gentle shave product (foam, cream, or gel), followed by a gentle, nonirritating aftershave or shaving lotion (which is actually just a masculine name for a gentle toner). An ideal after-shave product for men would be an aspirin-based topical product that uses additional potent anti-irritants. Aspirin is a very effective anti-inflammatory agent for irritated skin and is able to alleviate the redness and razor bumps/burn. Paula's Choice Skin Relief Treatment uses stabilized aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) with other anti-irritants and is designed to work as an effective after-shave for men or women. "

Well, my skin is very sensitive. Only using hair trimmers made me have razor bumps instantly. I never waxed, but I think it is the best way. But you ay use some shaving cream before, some shaving cream after. It helps a lot with my beard. I have no more facial razor bumps...

Shave with the grain of the hair..if you shave against, the hair will ingrow!

Wax is the way! first time hurts like a motha but after that the hair grows in less dense. Hair grows in cycles, and you probably have 3-4 cycles worth sprouting on your chest. After those are gone, you will only have the new growth to wax out each time. If you keep up with it (monthly) it won't even be that big a deal anymore.
