What causes razor burns?
Razor burns are basically, irritation from shaving. This can happen for a few reasons, like using a dull Razor that pulls on the skin, shaving dry skin that needs some hydration, shaving against the grain, or having sensitive skin that's just prone to irritation. But don't worry, there are ways to prevent it!
Tips and tricks to prevent razor burns
First of all, it's important to hydrate your skin before shaving. That means washing it with warm water and applying a moisturizing shaving cream. And speaking of razors, make sure you're using a sharp one to minimize nicks and cuts. Remember, to not apply too much pressure - just let the razor glide over your skin. Finally, using an aftershave can help soothe your skin and prevent razor burn. Just make sure to choose one that's gentle and alcohol-free.
But what if razor burns do happen, then how do you treat it?
First, try applying a cold compress to the affected area. This can help reduce inflammation and soothe your skin. And be sure to moisturize - this will help hydrate your skin and reduce irritation.
So, there you have it - the 411 on razor burns. Just remember to take care of your skin and use gentle, hydrating products. And if razor burn does happen, don't worry - it's annoying, but it's not the end of the world. Take a deep breath, follow these tips, and your skin will be back to its SmoothAF self in no time!
