No More Razor Burn and Ingrowns

What a lovely life would be to not have to deal with razor burn and ingrowns in your bikini line – to say bye-bye, no more. When shaving down there, ingrowns and red skin seems like they’re just part of the package. Thankfully, there are some proper steps to get rid of them once and for all.

P.S. don't by any means feel obliged to shave down there. It’s totally up to you and your comfort! Don’t feel pressure.

Below, we tell you how to prevent red, irritated, bumpy skin by just applying a few skincare tips. 

 In most cases, razor burn comes with ingrown hairs. You’ll be a lucky girl if you just get one or the other. But let’s dive into the causes of each.

Razor burn = skin irritation

This occurs when you shave with a dull razor, skip the shaving foam, or glide the razor too many times in different directions.

Moreover, ingrown hairs appear when hair grows and curled up into the skin inflaming the hair follicle. The bikini line is particularly prone to razor bumps because pubic hair is thicker, coarser, and curly, and tends to grow back into the skin.

HOW TO PREVENT RAZOR BURN

Follow this shaving routine:

Exfoliate the area

Let’s keep in mind we’re treating your most intimate skin; thus it can be very sensitive. Use a gentle scrub to slough away dead skin cells to make sure the hair can come cleanly out. Then, rinse off with warm water for a few minutes to soften the hair. Look for an exfoliator that contains effective active ingredients and at the same time, softens your skin. This step is essential to prevent ingrowns.

Invest in a high-quality bikini razor

You definitely need a sharp razor blade for down there. This will avoid a future razor burn. Ensure your bikini line stays smooth and bump-free by investing in a good razor so that you won’t need to glide several times to get a clean shave.

Choose the right shaving foam – do not skip it!

Shaving foam properly lubricates the skin creating a smoother surface for your blade to glide. Water and soap are simply not enough. Try to find one that was designed specifically for your intimate skin. Look out for hydrating ingredients that soothe and smooth skin. Remember that when you shave your hair, you’re shaving the top of the layer of skin too. Therefore, a good shaving foam will prevent irritation or razor burn. If you check the list of ingredients of our Shaving Foam now before it’s too late you will find all kinds of hydrating ingredients: aloe vera, glycerin, allantoin, castor oil, and watermelon extract.

Shave in the direction of hair growth

Not against it, this might give you the illusion you’re getting a closer shave but the only thing that’s doing is harming your skin. If you shave in different directions, you’re sentencing your skin to ingrowns. Also, rinse your razor with hot water before and after each use to avoid razor burn from residue on the blade.

Moisturize and treat traumas

Once you’re finished shaving, wash off residues of shaving foam and hairs with warm water for a few minutes. Then, calm your skin with an aftershave lotion that will target the most common skin concerns that can result from shaving. Our Skin Defense Lotion is the perfect remedy to prevent irritation, reduce the occurrence of ingrowns and moisturize your skin. A good aftershave will soothe your skin and allow it to heal naturally.

Use an unscented and alcohol-free moisturizer. Don’t forget to moisturize the area once a day for the following days for better results.

After all of this is done, you can say hi to a flawless and smooth bikini line!
