Razor burn is an annoying problem that most of us have encountered at least once when we shave our body hair. Razor Burn causes irritation and itching on the shaved skin surface and sometimes can be painful. Here are ways you can eliminate this problem and keep your skin healthy.
Treating Razor Burn
If you suffer from a razor burn, try:
Aloe vera oil on affected areas for heat or itching.
Witch hazel extract or tea tree oil mixed with water for inflammation.
Avoid products with alcohol if the area is dry and irritated.
Avoid shaving the area to help it heal.
Prevent Razor Burn
Before you start shaving or waxing, exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells and soften hair follicles. Then apply a shaving cream or gel to protect the skin from irritation, and shave in the direction of hair growth. Shaving in this direction will reduce the risk of getting razor burn because the blade will not be pulling against the grain of your hair. When shaving any area of your body, always use light and short strokes instead of long strokes.
Finally, clean your blade during the process by wiping away excess hair and shaving cream with a cloth or paper towel so that there is no debris left behind on your skin after rinsing off with warm water.
