Razor Bumps

Problems like razor burns, ingrown hairs and razor bumps canbe very painful, but avoidable as well. The following text will discuss on theways of accomplishing this. These problems occur when shaving, because the cut hair grows inward or it is stuck between the follicles.All of this will result in swelling and redness.This problem can be eliminated very simply and we will see how.


Active ingredients are the key to the problem. Do not believeall the products for men skin care because not all of them have salicylic acid,which is the best fighter against razor bumps. The pores will be exfoliated,cleared and moisturized with the use of a product with salicylic acid, whichwill also prevent occurrence of some infection. Also, we advise the use of shavingproducts with salicylic acid because they will provide daily protection. Remembernever to use an alcohol containing product because it will only make your skindry and close off the pores, thus making the problem greater. Skin will also bedried of if you use shaving creams, so try to avoid them. Use shaving creams whichare non-acnegenic because they are best for sensitive skin.

Exfoliation is the process of removal of dead skin layers, and this is what thosewith ingrown hair have to do. Face scrub can exfoliate your skin but useproducts with the salicylic acid. The method of shaving affects the creation ofrazor bumps, so you may need to change the way you shave in order to prevent razorbumps. Razor bumps can be developed due to close shaving so try to avoidshaving in this way. This happens because the cut hair is very short and it caneasily stick inside the viola and hair follicle and thus produce an ingrownhair. Never pull your skin when you shave because this is a very common way ofshaving close and creating yourself a problem. Shave gently without highpressure on the skin. Use the grain to shave and a razor with a single blade. Try to shave in this way and stick to it because people tend to forget andshave close as they did before. It may be hard to lose some habits, but you willhave to do this in order to avoid razor bumps and ingrown hairs.


In order to correct this problem, you have to take tweezers and lift the ingrownhair from the unwanted position. Never pluck them because this will make theproblem worse. Products with witch hazel, allantonin and azulene should be usedfor the problem of swelling.As you can see these are very simple ways of prevention and everybody canimplement them. The only problem is to introduce them as habits, but with a littlework, you can do it.
