Apply lotion or cleanser
You should use lotion or cleanser after shaving. Men can even use aftershave lotion. You might feel a burning sensation in the start but these conditioners will eventually treat the bumps. In addition to this, they will reduce the redness on your skin and keep it healthy.
Use different techniques
You need to allow your hair to grow again after a few hours or at least half a day and apply a different shaving technique this time. In case you shave in a downward motion, you need to try in an upward motion. Hopefully this change in technique will reduce the amount of razor bumps.
Use corticosteroid cream
In order to lower the redness and swelling, you can apply a corticosteroid cream. In addition to this, you can use benzoyl peroxide on the razor bumps. This ointment not only lowers the bumps but also help prevent rashes from developing.
Try different aftershave, creams and razors
You should try different type of aftershave, creams, lotions, razors and methods of shaving. By this you will determine whether you are having an allergic reaction to anything you have used before.
Shave in the shower or bath
It is advisable for you to shave in the shower or bath as your skin won’t dry out. You need to shave smoothly, calmly and with caution. Remember that razor bumps are mostly formed when you shave hastily.
Use new razors
It is recommended to use new razors as older ones pull your skin and causes irritation. This eventually forms razor bumps on your skin.
Give your face some rest for few days
After using a razor on your skin, you need to give your face some rest for almost two to three days. This will allow for your to skin recover. You can use an electric shaver or trimmer in order to give time for your skin to recover.
