We know that the simple act of shaving imposes constant stress on the skin. Shaving is a form of physical exfoliation that can impact the health of the skin. Razor bumps, ingrown hairs, razor burn and inflammation are just some of the visible signs of trauma that the skin endures when a razor is used. To help prevent ingrown hairs and razor bumps, start by exfoliating prior to shaving. We recommend the Blueberry & Pumice Facial Scrub, it will help effectively exfoliate and prep the skin’s surface, removing excess skin cells that keep the hairs embedded under the skin. For sensitized skin, exfoliate in the evening rather than directly before shaving.
Razor Burn is inflammation of the skin that includes any nicks, scratches and irritation associated with shaving. Razor burn can occur from:
- A reaction from certain substances or ingredients
- Shaving too closely and/or too quickly
- Inadequate lubrication during shaving
- Shaving against the grain of the hair (against the direction of the hair growth)
- Shaving over already irritated or sensitized areas
- Applying too much pressure during shaving (which only facilitates the removal of skin cells, resulting in excess friction and irritation)
- Shaving with a blunt blade (a sharp blade will require less pressure)
