Stop Razor Burn
Shut Razor Bumps Down
Let's have a look at the direct causes of razor burn and other shaving irritations to help you understand what can be done to reduce and relieve your suffering.
When shaving skin that isn't well lubricated, the blade won't glide properly over the skin. Razor burn will follow within a few days after shaving. The irritation can be more severe if you're putting too much pressure on your skin while shaving.
Don't Be Blunt
Dull or blunt blades play a role in causing razor burn and shaving irritation. It's impossible for a blunt blade to glide properly and remove all the hairs. Imagine rubbing a small brick on your cheek - it's rough and will produce a scrape or a rash. Using a dull, blunt blade will produce the same irritated, burning sensation.
Treat and Heal Razor Bumps
Ok, now that we know the causes of Razor Burn and Shaving Irritation, let's look at how to prevent, treat and heal the problem.
- Use a high quality thick shaving cream. The thickness acts a a "skin protector" and a cream formula softens hair much more effectively than a foam or gel. A thick cream ensures a smoother, easier shave and prevents opportunites for irritation.
- Use a light smooth stroke. Too much pressure or pulling the skin while shaving will irritate the skin.
- Always use a fresh blade whenever possible. Dull blades will wreak havoc on your face - guaranteed!
