- Treat Your Bumps: Use a product made for treating razor bumps. It should include salicylic acid, glycolic acid, witch hazel, aloe, or a combination of these. This will help remove the dead skin, kill any bacteria and encourage healing.
- Prevention: The good news is that there are lots of different razor burn prevention techniques. The first, and probably the easiest, is to always use a sharp razor. Along with this you should always shave in the shower, although it should be at the beginning of the shower rather than the end to get the best results, and always use a shaving cream to help soften the hairs. If you have consistent problems with razor burn try shaving every other day at most. This will give your skin more time to heal between shaves. Another way to help your skin stay clean and soft is to rinse in cold water. This helps to close the open pores and keep your skin clean longer.
Summer is a great time for playing outdoors so don't let your hairy legs ruin your fun! Shaving can be difficult but with the right techniques anyone can achieve a comfortable and attractive shave job. I know that as soon as my big belly is out of the way freshly shaven legs are a treat that I will thoroughly enjoy!
