How to get rid of razor bumps once and for all
One of the greatest feelings in the world is fresh out of the shower shaved legs! They’re soft, silky, and you wish they could last forever without any upkeep. But then as you’re admiring your lovely legs that you worked so hard to get smooth and perfect those annoying and painful red bumps start to appear. We all know those evil, painful, ridiculous little bumps mean; razor burn. Here’s how to get rid of it once and for all!
Why you get the bumps
Now, I don’t want to say it’s our fault that we get razor bumps, but it totally is. When you get razor burn it’s because you’ve committed one of these common shaving faux pas:
- You’re using a dull blade. Your razor should glide across your skin, the second it feels like its pulling or tugging, it’s time to ditch it.
- You’re shaving too hard. Razor burn normally occurs on areas of skin that are the most sensitive like your bikini line, underarms, and legs. Make sure you’re not pressing down t0o hard or you won’t be shaving off hair but a layer of skin.
- You’re using cold water to shave. Cold water contracts the skin and hair follicles, so its best to shave with warm water to open up your pores.
- You’re not using shaving cream or lotion. Even if your razor comes with a cream or lotion strip on it you need to be using a lotion or cream to shave with because it moistens the skin and gives you a protective barrier between your razor and skin.
