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.
How To Treat And Prevent Razor Bumps?
The best way to treat razor bumps is by following a strict vag care routine before and after shaving. Here are 4 proven steps you need to follow to prevent razor bumps on your bikini area.
1. 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!
2. Exfoliate Before You Shave
This one is so important! Exfoliating will soften and smoothen the skin so that you can achieve an even closer and cleaner shave with the razor. There are many scrubs out there that can help with this however, we do recommend our 100% natural and organic Glow Scrub.
This scrub not only helps with shaving, it is made with powerful ingredients that target hyperpigmentation. It is going to get rid of skin cells that make the skin appear darker and promote skin cell regeneration which will result in brighter and healthier looking skin.
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. Mask Up!
If you didn't know that you could mask down there, now you know! You need something on your bikini area that is not only going fix the surface of the skin but also absorb all the junk from inside of the pores.
Our 100% natural Soothe Clay Mask absorbs excess oils, dirt, bacteria and other impurities from the pores. It contains antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti inflammatory properties that will calm any inflamed bumps while also keeping your skin looking bright and supple. This mask also gently exfoliates the surface of the skin to aid with evening out your skin tone.
5. Wear Cotton Material
Other materials won’t let your skin breathe and recover properly. Cotton underwear help prevent itching, and even help prevent infections.
6. Choose The Right Moisturizer
If you're using lotion on your bikini area, stop right now! Lotion is so bad for your skin, they are made with preservatives, fragrances and other chemicals that accumulate in even greater amounts on your body over time.
Plus, lotions cause skin dryness and skin irritation with extended use, which coincidentally happens to be great for business.
