When you have even remotely sensitive skin, shaving can irritate it like nothing else. If you want to get rid of the hair, however, you don’t have a lot of other options. Most people try to repair the damage of shaving afterwards, but Redditor johadalin suggests more preventative measures.

Try preparing before the shave rather than treating after.
Use moisturiser the night before, and then again in the morning before getting into a nice hot shower. Shave on coming out of the shower. With the grain first, then against the grain as a second run. Done.
Basically, if your skin causes the problem, fix your skin first.
