HOW TO PREVENT RAZOR BUMPS & INGROWN HAIRS

Pre-shave preparation is everything when it comes to a smooth, irritation-free shave. By softening your facial hair and opening up your pores, you can ensure your razor glides smoothly to prevent and reduce razor burns, razor bumps and ingrown hairs.

  • Take a warm shower or apply a warm towel compress to your face for a few minutes. This will help to soften your facial hair and open up your pores.
  • Use an exfoliating face scrub for men to lift and soften the facial hairs. A men's face scrub will help remove any dead skin cells that could clog your razor, cause irritation and razor burns.
  • Apply an enrich shave cream or gel to your face. The right shave cream or gel will help to lubricate your skin and add a protective cushion to protect the skin from the razor.

Use the Right Men's Shaving Cream to Reduce and Prevent Razor Bumps, Razor Burn, and Ingrown Hair

An enriched nourishing men’s shave cream softens facial hair, lifts hair up and away from the skin and forms a protective cushion between your face and razor, allowing for a smooth close shave. A plant powered natural men's shave cream infused with chamomile, green tea, ginseng and pure essential oils will hydrate, soothe, reduce razor burns, razor bumps and ingrown hairs. 

Here are a few things to look for when choosing a shaving cream:

  • Look for a men's shave cream that is designed for sensitive skin. This will help to prevent irritation and razor burns.
  • Look for a men's shave cream that contains nourishing and moisturizing plant based ingredients. This will nourish your skin and keep your skin hydrated after shaving.
  • Avoid shave creams that contain alcohol or other harsh chemicals. These ingredients can irritate and dry your skin. Look for a natural men's shave cream without pore clogging ingredients.

Use a Sharp and Sanitized Razor to Reduce and Prevent Razor Bumps, Razor Burn, and Ingrown Hair

A dull razor is the main culprit and cause of many razor burns and razor bumps for men. Make sure to use a sharp razor every time you shave and replace it regularly.

Here are a few tips:

  • Use a new razor blade every time you shave. This will help to prevent razor burns and razor bumps.
  • Sanitize the razor with rubbing alcohol before each use 
  • While shaving, rinse the razor blade frequently under hot water to unclog the blades of hair and shave cream.

Shave in the right direction to prevent razor bumps and razor burns 

Shaving against the grain can cause irritation, ingrown hairs and razor bumps. For the very first pass, always shave in the direction of your hair growth.

Here are a few tips for shaving in the right direction:

  • Always shave in the direction of your hair growth. This will help to prevent irritation, ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
  • If you have to shave against the grain, do it for the very last pass. This will help to get a closer shave.
  • Be careful not to press too hard when shaving. This can cause razor burn and razor bumps.

Rinse with Cold Water

Rinsing with cold water after shaving closes your pores, calms and soothes your skin. You can also apply a cold compress to your face for a few minutes. This will further reduce inflammation and redness to minimize razor burns and razor bumps.

Use a Men's Moisturizer Daily

Moisturizing your skin after shaving can help to keep it hydrated and protected. This will help to prevent razor burn and irritation.

Here are a few tips for moisturizing your skin after shaving:

  • Apply a men's moisturizer after shaving to keep your skin hydrated, nourished and protected.
  • Look for a men's moisturizer that contains plant based antioxidant ingredients. These natural ingredients will keep your skin healthy and protected.
