What causes razor bumps?

You can develop razor burn for a number of different reasons. There isn’t any one specific thing — such as a type of razor or shaving lubricant — to avoid.
The following can lead to razor burn:
• shaving without using a lubricant, such as soap and water or shaving cream
• shaving against the direction of your hair
• using an old razor
• using a razor that’s clogged with hair, soap, or shaving cream
• shaving a single area too many times
• shaving too quickly
• using shaving products that irritate your skin
It’s important to remember that your razor is a tool that must be maintained and replaced as needed. Even if you’re using an appropriate lubricant and shaving in the correct direction, a dull or clogged blade can cause you to develop razor burn.

Is razor burn the same thing as razor bumps?
Although the terms are used interchangeably, razor burn and razor bumps are generally considered different conditions. A razor burn is caused after you shave, and razor bumps are the result of shaved hairs growing back and becoming ingrown.
Ingrown hairs may look like raised bumps or even acne. This may occur when you remove hair through methods such as shaving, tweezing, or waxing. When the hair grows back, it curls into your skin instead of away from your skin.
Similar to razor burn, razor bumps can cause tenderness, inflammation, and a red rash.
Razor bumps are more common in people with curly hair, because the hair is more likely to curl back into the skin. A more severe version of razor bumps is known as pseudofolliculitis barbae. This condition occurs in up to 60 percent of African American men and in others with curly hair. In severe situations, this condition may require your doctor’s advice and treatment.

Tips and tricks............
• Regularly exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells.
• Before shaving with razor , apply a lubricant, such Shave Therapy shavers lotion and shave Gel to provide a smooth protective glide.
• Avoid the temptation to pull your skin tightly while shaving.
• Shave in the direction that the hair grows.
• Shave with light and short strokes.
• Rinse your blade frequently during the shaving process.
• After shaving, rinse your skin with cold water or apply a cold washcloth to close pores.
• Replace your razor or blade frequently.
• Try using an electric razor or another safe hair removal method. Prep skin for shaver with Shave Therapy shavers lotion
