I am a waxing/sugaring kind of gal, but it is an expensive habit, and especially in the summer when my legs and armpits are exposed, meaning I can’t have as many hairy stints as I’d like, I do succumb to the need for shaving. THEN, I feel totally guilty and gross because I’ve most likely just dry shaved in a hurry before I leave the house and am left with blotchy red bumps. If you find yourself with irritated post-shaving skin, here are 11 ways to get rid of razor burn:
- Moisturizing shaving cream – well, duh, it’s designed specifically to prevent or reduce razor burn from the get go. Aloe vera, shea butter, or vitamin E infused shaving creams could be your legs’ new best friend.
- Fresh aloe – for more than just sunburns, aloe will soothe almost any skin irritation. Fresh is preferred, but aloe vera creams should work just as well.
