Have razor burn? What the heck is that? Just get rid of it – right?
It’s no secret that razor burn sucks. In case you’re curious, the cause is simple:
Razor burn, or razor bumps, also called pseudofolliculitis barbae, are small, irritated bumps on the skin. They develop after shaving, when strands of hair curl back on themselves and grow into the skin. Razor bumps cause irritation and pimples – hence razor burn. They also may cause scarring.
Preventing razor burn by prepping skin thoroughly before shaving is most effective – but a lot of guys skip this. It takes more time and – let’s face it: dealing with multiple products is a pain.
Good news – you don’t have to jump through hoops to get a smooth shave. All you need to do is switch up the order of your routine and use ONE product to get smooth, healthy skin – that’s razor burn free.
- Shower first – A steamy shower before shaving can add moisture to the skin and makes your hair softer and easier to remove.
- Use warm, not hot water – hot water removes too much of the skin’s natural oil, leaving it dry sensitive and irritated.
- Exfoliate gently – it’s not as much of a “process” as it sounds: just use a soft washcloth to gently slough away dead skin cells, allowing for a smoother shave.
- Use a quality razor – A new, sharp blade is the least irritating option.
- Moisturize – Using a moisturizer during and after shaving will replace any oils and moisture lost during shaving – helping prevent dry sensitive skin after shaving.
Darin hates shaving – but loves skin solution:
“I’ve suffered from razor burn, particularly on my neck, my whole life. The only way I could shave previously was to use a number of over-priced products and a pretty time-consuming routine. I tried Skin Solution, as my pre-shave lotion, my shave cream, and post-shave moisturizer. Yes – I used the same product for all 3 uses. And it worked great. No razor burn, no discomfort, and my skin feels great. ” Add to your cart and get started next week!
