First off, you're not alone. Every girl who removes unwanted hair gets bumps and irritation at some point - it comes with the territory. Razor bumps and ingrown hairs are unsightly but generally harmless and extremely common in those who shave.
So how exactly are bumps born?
A few ways, actually. One is ingrown hairs. These pesky bumps pop up when a hair curls back into the skin instead of growing straight out, the body treats it as if it is an infection, therefore causing the "bump". Another cause is the formation of tiny, pimple-like blemishes created by some type of irritation. And last but not least, some bumps are actually tiny scabs that result from the abrasions that occur during hair removal.
Razor burn and irritation occur when the skin is chafed during hair removal. Imagine if you fell and scraped your knee, it would turn red and be irritated, right? It's kind of like that.
The good news is --Bikini Zone products are specially formulated to put the brakes on bumps and irritation. Our medicated formulas contain an analgesic to soothe away pain and irritation. They improve healing by speeding along the growth of new skin cells to replace the scraped ones, therfore, eliminating the redness and razor burn. Lastly, for those little acne-like blemishes, Bikini Zone products heal, soothe and exfoliate the skin to help prevent new hair growth from curling back into the skin to form that ingrown hair bump.
How can i prevent bumps and ingrown hairs?
Properly shaving with high quality products and tools designed for you reduces ingrown hairs and razor bumps. Believe it or not if you are prone to razor bumps and ingrown hairs, you may not be shaving enough. Shaving not only removes unwanted hair, but it also acts as an exfoliant, so unless your skin is ultra sensitive, (but we have products for that) shaving daily is optimul for keeping skin smooth and bump free.
It is also best to avoid shaving over the same area multiple times and it is very important to always use a clean, sharp razor.
