Solutions to Razor Bumps
If you get razor burn or ingrown hairs, you can take several steps to soothe your skin and prevent it from happening again. Razor bumps are a type of skin irritation that’s often associated with shaving. It leaves behind itchy, painful, puss-filled bumps on the skin as the hair starts to grow back.
Aloe vera is known for soothing and healing burns. Evidence from 2007 supports the potential of aloe vera for healing first- and second-degree burns. To treat razor burn, apply a thin layer of pure aloe vera gel onto the affected area. Sweet almond oil is made from dried almond kernels. It’s super emollient and a great natural moisturizer. Try applying sweet almond oil to your skin after shaving. You may also apply it directly to inflamed skin as needed. Baking soda has a cooling effect on the skin. It’s thought to draw out heat and pain, although there’s no scientific evidence to support this theory. To make a baking soda paste, add baking soda to filtered water until a thick paste forms. Apply the paste to your skin, leave on until it dries, and rinse thoroughly.
