Razor bumps can be really irritating when it comes to shaving. Here are a few ways in which you can prevent than and achieve smoother skin.
WE all know how hair removal is an important part of our beauty regime. Of all methods what appears the fastest is shaving. However, this can be a painful method too and can take a toll on your skin. Razor bumps are pretty common for beauties with sensitive skin which can either be accompanied with burns or irritation.
Shaving can be an easy task if done the right way. The following ways can help you avoid the gross razor bumps:
Aloe Vera has been widely used in households for beauty purposes. Whether skin or hair it yields great results. Aloe Vera is a great remedy for treating irritated skin as well as burnt skin. Just apply a little aloe vera gel wherever your skin itches and you will face relief immediately. This is a great alternative to creams bought from stores that are chemically loaded.
Apple Cider vinegar:
When you experience irritated skin after shaving, just apply apple cider vinegar soaked in a cotton ball on the affected area. This will help you tremendously in soothing the burnt skin. Just let the vinegar rest on the affected area and wash it off with warm water after it dries off. Repeat this at least thrice a day to reap the best results.
Use the black or the white variety of tea for effective results. Tea is extremely beneficial when it comes to soothing inflammed areas of the body. Soak the tea bag in water and dab it on the affected area. The reddishness and swelling will soothe. For black teas it is best to cool the tea bag in the refrigerator and use it repeatedly unless the bump subsides.
Change your razors regularly:
Prevention is always better than cure. In order to avoid any sort of irritation to the skin, it is better to keep your razors clean and change the blades often. Your follicles can become a breeding ground for bacteria if old razors are used. Also, fresh razors will ensure that you get the closest shave and enjoy a much smoother skin. After shaving, moisturise the area with a rich cream or oils such as coconut oil or olive oil. In fact for shaving your intimate areas, olive oil can be a much better and affordable substitute to shaving creams.
Tea tree oil:
This oil is a miracle when to comes to preventing or treating acne and razor bumps. Add a few drops to a bowl of water and dab it on to the affected skin. Given the strength and concentration of the oil, if not diluted well it might burn if you have a sensitive skin.
