How to Avoid Razor Burn

Okay, you’re about to shave your legs — what can you do to make sure that you prevent razor burn?

    • Use a Quality Shaving Gel or Lotion

As easy as it is to grab your shower soap for shaving your legs, it might be time to invest in a gel or lotion that will moisturize and protect your legs much more than the typical bar of soap, which can be drying.

    • Exfoliate First

This smoothes your skin and gets rid of dead skin cells, and cleans your legs off better than most soaps. It softens up the hair on your legs and lessens the chances for razor burn.

    • Hot Water First, Cold Water Afterwards

Soak your legs in hot water for 5-10 minutes before shaving, and then rinse them with cold water afterwards! This helps open up the pores for easy shaving beforehand, and closes them back up after. Moisturizing after a shave is a great idea, as well.

How to Get Rid of Razor Burn

Already have razor burn? Ouch! Here are some razor burn tips so you can get rid of it quickly. There are alternatives to shaving, too; try waxing or laser hair removal, if the bumps from shaving are really bothering you!

    • Wear Loose Clothing

Wear a long skirt or flared pants after getting a razor burn. Keep the skin cool and don’t irritate it with tight clothing, which will only make it worse.

    • Don’t Shave Again Right Away

Give your skin a rest and don’t shave again until after the little red bumps from your razor burn are gone. They’ll only become more stubborn and irritated.

    • Only Shave at Night

If you can’t avoid razor burn altogether, shave your legs at night. Apply a quality cream or lotion (something like aloe vera) for the night, and your legs can be back to silky smooth by morning.

    • Use a Razor Burn Cream

A good razor burn cream can quickly get rid of razor burn by soothing inflammation and protecting against bacterial infection, thus speeding up the healing process. A good cream can also stop itch and irritation.
