Keep reading to learn how to treat and prevent razor bumps/ingrown hairs effectively. Below you're also going find a few tips to brighter and clearer skin down there so that you never have to worry about bumps or hyperpigmentation when you wear a bikini!
What Are Razor Bumps?
Razor bumps, or ingrown hairs, are small, irritated bumps on the skin. They occur after you shave, it is when the strands of hair curl back on themselves and grow into the skin. They cause irritation and bumps. They also may cause scarring. You can get these on your bikini area, underarms, legs or any other body part you shave.
How To Treat And Prevent Razor Bumps?
The best way to treat and prevent razor bumps is by doing this ONE thing I mention below, and by creating a consistent routine. Consistency is key!
1. ALWAYS, ALWAYS EXFOLIATE BEFORE SHAVING!
I don't know where you heard that you should be exfoliating AFTER you shave but, it doesn't even make sense. Exfoliating BEFORE shaving will soften and smoothen the skin so that you can achieve closer and cleaner shave with the razor. This helps prevent razor bumps. After shaving, our skin becomes more sensitive, and you shouldn't be scrubbing after.
Our Glow Scrub will help prep your skin for a perfect shave. And not only does it help with shaving, but it's also made with powerful ingredients that target hyperpigmentation. It is going to get rid of skin cells that make the skin appear darker and it promotes skin cell regeneration which will result in brighter and healthier looking skin.
2. Use A Men’s Razor
A few studies have shown that men’s razors are made with higher quality blades and will give a closer and cleaner shave. Plus, some men’s razors are made to navigate around areas in the face that are harder to reach like the chin, cheeks, neck and even the nose. So, using a men’s razor will make it a lot easier to shave your bikini area.
Before you shave, use warm water to open up the pores. This also helps prevent razor bumps and even razor burns.
And, don’t shave against the grain!
3. Use Shaving Cream
Shaving cream can also help you achieve a closer and cleaner shave. It softens and hydrates the hair to make it easier to shave it away. The less force you have to use, the more likely it is that you will prevent razor bumps and burns.
Use a shaving cream that is natural and unscented because chemicals and fragrances can affect your PH balance.
4. Wear Cotton Material
Other materials won’t let your skin breathe and recover properly. Cotton underwear help prevent itching, and even help prevent infections.
Vag Skin Care Is Just As Important!
You should be exfoliating consistently in order to achieve clear glowing skin on your bikini area.
