Razor Bumps - Prevention And Treatments
Unsightly razor bumps are an unfortunate result of hair removal and can appear anywhere on the body after shaving. There are many causes including the improper use of a razor, blades that are dull and worn and shaving dry and damaged skin that is not properly prepared. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you exfoliate the skin before shaving.
Your skin does a pretty good job of exfoliation on its own but needs help in those areas that are shaved often. If you are looking for an all natural way to prepare the skin, there are number of products that can help you avoid those irritating razor bumps.
Soaps and scrubs that contain natural ingredients such as oatmeal or ground almond shells, do a great job at washing away dead and dry skin, leaving the surface smooth, moisturized and protected. They also even out the skin causing the razor to shave the area with little or no resistance.
Once the skin is prepared for shaving, the use of virgin organic coconut oil shaving cream will keep razor bumps to an absolute minimum and you’ll get a very close and smooth shave at the same time.
If razor bumps still appear, there are a number of things you can do to treat and heal them quickly and completely. First, gently clean the area with a very mild soap such as African black soap or Shea butter or coconut oil to complete the process.
By first properly exfoliating and preparing the skin—then using an mild, all natural shaving cream—will make those unsightly razor bumps a thing of the past.
