In the previous article we looked at the various ways to prevent razor bumps, and I believed you have learnt something from the article. However, this post is for those who are already affected with razor bumps and who are suffering from the symptoms. In this post, I am going to stipulate on the various ways to get rid of razor bumps.
Razor bumps are not only an unsightly by-product of hair removal, but they can become infected and cause you pain and even skin problems. The bikini area can be particularly problematic because the skin is so sensitive. So if you sincerely want to get rid of razor bumps and get your skin back to smooth and irritation-free skin. I have stipulated six ways you can get rid of razor bumps and free your skin from irritations. They are as follows:
1. Treat Infection with Aloe Vera Lotion, To Leave Your Skin Clear and Smooth
If you suspect that you have infected ingrown hairs, try using an antibacterial cream on them each day. Bacitracin, Neosporin, and Polysporin are all possible topical treatments. And you can find Bacitracin, Neosporin, and Polysporin properties in Aloe Vera Lotion. So rob Aloe Vera on the affected part to help clear the irritations and smoothen your skin.
2. Let the Hair Grow Out a Bit before Shaving Again
Shaving over razor bumps will only irritate or tear them open, leaving them vulnerable to infection (and probably not removing much hair in the process). If you can, let the hair grow for a few days and see if it breaks out of the bumps on its own.
3. Resist the Urge to Scratch the Area
It might itch, but breaking the bumps with your fingernails can lead to infection and scarring. Try to hold off as much as you can. Try to discipline yourself not to scratch on the affected area, though it might be tempting to scratch, but in this period you have to discipline yourself not to scratch the affected area. Avoiding scratching the affected area will help to fasten the treatment of the razor bumps.
4. Treat Scarring With Retin-A
Retinoids, derived from Vitamin A, can help smooth over skin and reduce the appearance of scars or marks left by razor bumps. You might need to see a doctor for a prescription. Do not use Retin-A if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. It can cause severe birth defects. Areas treated with Retin-A are more susceptible to sunburns. Cover up, or wear SPF 45 sunscreen. Don’t use Retin-A on any areas where you plan to wax in the future. It can make the skin significantly weaker, leading to potential tearing during a waxing session.
5. Use a Product that is Designed to Treat Razor Bump
Look for something that contains salicylic acid, glycolic acid, witch hazel, aloe, or any combination of these ingredients. Some of these products might come in a roller bottle that is designed to go directly on your skin, while others might require you to put the solution on a cotton ball and dab it on your skin.
If you don’t know what to buy, call your local waxing salon and ask what they recommend to their clients. You can probably purchase the product there as well, or look around online.
Apply the solution to your skin at least once per day, if not more. Aim to do it when you get out of the shower, before your skin has sweat or anything else on it.
6. See a Dermatologist
If your razor bumps persist for several weeks and you haven’t shaved again, consider booking an appointment with a dermatologist. That is, after following this entire strategist stipulated above and the razor bumps persists, you are advised to see a dermatologist to examine you and know what is really wrong with you. So you can get a proper treatment.
If you follow these tips that I have stipulated above, then you will be able to get rid of Razor Bumps.
