Razor burn can be painful and embarrassing. Dull razors can leave you with a painfully swollen face. Here are a few tips for eliminating razor burn that really work!
Use a sharp razor. There is nothing that will give you a worse case of razor burn than a dull razor. Make sure you change your blades on a regular basis.Ā
Wash your face with a microbead face wash. This is sort of a hidden secret when it comes to preventing razor burn. TheseĀ face washes are normally for acne and pore cleaning but the microbeads do a great job for removing dead skin that get caught in your razor. When you cut this dead skin off it goes deeper into your skin causing painful razor burn.
If you have a thick beard or stubble, put a littleĀ hair conditioner on your facial hair while your in the shower. This will help soften the hair for a smoother cut when it comes time to shave.
Shave with the grain of your hair. I know this isn't as effective as the opposite, but it will help prevent razor burn.
Wash your face withĀ cold water. This will help close your pores and just feels refreshing in general. Follow it up with a men's moisturizer and your ready to go.
