Any guy that shaves wants to know how to get rid of razor bumps on neck. Razor bumps happen when a hair follicle becomes irritated while shaving from lack of cleanliness or moisture. Men experience this most often when shaving their face. Usually they shave their faces quickly just to get it out of the way. This incorrect technique causes hair follicles to swell and become razor bumps.
One of the ways of stopping razor bumps on the neck is to prevent them. To prevent razor bumps you'll need the following tools:
- All natural antibacterial soap.
- Alcohol wipes.
- Hair bump eliminating lotion.
- Shaving cream.
Many people unknowingly shave their faces and necks wrong. There is a proper way to shave a face and using the proper technique can help reduce or even completely stop razor bumps from appearing. The proper way to shave a face is as follows:
- Clean your razor and anything else you use to help you shave. Take the alcohol wipes and run it over your razor and other shaving tools. Dirty shaving tools can collect bacteria that ends up on your face. It's also suggested changing razors or razor heads after every three to five shaves.
- Wash your skin with the all natural antibacterial soap before shaving your face. Whenever hair follicles get infected, swell and become hair bumps it is usually caused by a mix between the skin being dirty and the actual follicle being cut by the razor. Shaving is known to open up the pores on your skin. If the razor is dirty, they can also collect that bacteria and become infected.
- Spread the shaving cream on your face, neck and any other areas that require shaving. Make sure that you do not leave any areas dry and without shaving cream. Dry shaving irritates the skin, it's very painful and can cause razor bumps.
- Shave with the grain. It may be common practice to shave against the grain, but it is awful for the skin. Shaving against the grain leaves your hair follicles damaged, the hair grows out in the wrong direction causing the follicle to become infected.
- Apply hair bump eliminating lotion daily. This lotion keeps hair bumps from forming by keeping your skin moisturized. Men with a little bit more of a razor bumps problem might want to apply the lotion once in the morning and once at night.
Whenever you shave, think about your skin. If you feel any discomfort while shaving, it's a sign that you may be causing razor bumps by damaging the hair follicles on the face and neck. Try to keep in mind that you are trying to keep the skin moist while shaving so any dryness you feel may suggest you need to apply some water or more shaving cream.
