Almost anyone who shaves regularly has experienced it at one time or the other: red bumps, burning sensation of the skin, itching and skin irritation after shaving. Both men and women often see red bumps appearing right after they shave. Scratching these bumps leads to aggravated itching, razor rash and a red skin.
Men Shave Ever More Body Parts
Nowadays, we prefer to wax, tweeze and shave as much body hair as possible. Men prefer a smooth chest, smooth face and a hairless back and a growing number of men shave their pubic area. This helps us to keep tabs on our hygiene. Shaving without the proper attention, however, may cause ingrown hairs; a problem most men are familiar with. Especially for men with a sensitive skin we have developed Immaculate Man.
Why do Red Bumps Appear After Shaving?
Women who frequently shave their bikini lines, often experience skin irritation, itching, a burning sensation of the skin and razor bumps – especially women who frequently shave wet or use an epilator. Shaving against the grain, the blade pulls the hairs harshly from the skin and damages the skin. Using old, blunt razors or shaving products that do not match your skin type can cause razor bumps.
How to Prevent Razor Bumps?
Shaving with the grain helps to prevent razor bumps and dramatically reduces the changes of stubbles, skin irritation and ingrown hairs. Granted, this shaving technique takes more time, but that is easily outweighed by the benefits of reduced razor rash, soar skin, razor burn and razor bumps. Be sure to use a gendered razor to fit your shaving routine and a shaving product that is in tone with your skin type – preferably a product for a sensitive skin.
