Razor Burn Treatment

How to get soft legsShaving is obviously very popular for most of the population; Men’s faces or women’s legs or a number of other places are shaved to produce smooth, soft skin but it can often lead to unattractive red, itchy razor bumps we know as Razor Burn or shaving rash.

This usually occurs when the hair follicles are infected with bacteria which can cause inflammation of the skin or just the wrong technique is used and so painful red bumps appear.

Preventing Razor Burn

We know that red, sore, bumpy skin isn’t exactly the look you were going for, so here are some steps you can take to prevent irritation and reduce the already red, inflamed skin.

Shaving Technique

You’ve probably been shaving for years; and think that you don’t need someone to tell you how to shave but most people do not realise that preparation is key.

First make sure that your razor is clean and sharp, otherwise this will irritate the skin causing ingrown hair and razor rash. Replace razors often.

Preparing the skin is so important as dry skin, oily skin, or dead skin cells can block pores and cause a rash.

Hydrating Skin Before Shaving

Splash your face with warm water to begin with. Then cleanse your skin with a non-chemical soap such as the Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar which works wonders for preparing your skin for a shave.  The warm water will soften your hairs and help open the pores so that the rich lather of the Therapy bar with its antiseptic, detoxifying and purifying qualities can thoroughly cleanse the skin and lock in the moisture that you need.

After you have rinsed you can then create some more lather to actually shave with, apply this thick later to the skin using circular motions to ensure coverage.

When you are shaving, ensure you are not pressing to hard, you should only need light gentle strokes and if you need to try to keep the skin taught.  Another tip is to make sure that you rinse the blade often. Some people find that not going “against the grain” prevents razor rash too – you might not get such a close shave though but it will be worth it.

Rinse your skin thoroughly to ensure you have washed off any lather or hairs that might have been left behind, gently pat dry and apply the Syrinx Za Skin Revitaliser to reduce redness, irritation and to keep the skin hydrated to prevent razor burn.
