Guys Here Are 6 Ways You Can Prevent Razor Bumps.

Razor bumps can occur on the face of any man who shaves, but if you shave correctly and treat your skin right prior to and after shaving, soft and bump-free skin is more likely to be yours when you step out of the bathroom.
  Guys Here Are 6 Ways You Can Prevent Bumps.
 1. Single-edge razor blade

Shave with a sharp, single-edge razor blade. Avoid using razors with more than one blade, as they give a closer shave. Shaving too close to the skin will cut the hair at a level that lies beneath the surface of the skin, which will increase the possibility that curly hair will curl downwards and back into the skin before it has the chance to break the surface of the skin.

2. Exfoliating scrub

Exfoliate your skin with an exfoliating scrub and warm water prior to shaving. This will help to clear out the pores, remove dead skin and even the skin tone. After exfoliating, massage warm water into the hair you’ll be shaving to help soften the hairs

3.Moisturizing shaving cream

Apply a thick layer of moisturizing shaving cream to the wet hair. Leave the shaving cream to sit on your skin for about one minute before shaving to allow it to completely coat the hairs

4.Shave in the direction that the hair is growing

Shave in the direction that the hair is growing, rather than in the opposite direction. Shaving in the opposite direction of the hair growth gives you a closer shave.

  Avoid pulling the skin taut while shaving, and don’t go over the same area more than a couple of times, as this, too, will shave the hair too closely. Rinse your skin with cool water and pat it dry with a soft towel

5.  Hydrating aftershave solution

Apply a hydrating aftershave solution to your skin immediately after shaving. Look for products that contain ingredients like tea tree oil, witch hazel or aloe. These products will reduce discomfort and redness and help to prevent razor bumps. Stay away from alcohol-based products, which can dry out the skin and give it an ashy appearance

 6. Washcloth

The first day after shaving, gently massage the freshly shaven skin with a dry washcloth before bed to help loosen and remove dead skin, as this helps to prevent hairs from curling back into the skin.

 Razor bumps are not as bad as they may seem as long as you follow the afformentioned steps you will be fine.
