Redditor russell_m explains:

Paint the bottom ring of your shaving cream cans with clear nail polish and they won’t leave rust rings in your bathroom.

This actually works on all sorts of things. I had a glass that was painted on the bottom and leaving marks on my wood table, and clear nail polish puts a nice layer of protection between them.
