11 Ways To Get Rid Of Razor Burn

July 13, 2014 2 min read

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:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Witch hazel – also really good for cleaning out your pores, you can apply directly or pour a cup into a warm bath. Cheap and effective, especially when paired with a good lotion. razorburnunscentedML 5. Cleanse before shaving – a good idea for anyone who often gets razor burn, prep your skin before shaving. Exfoliate gently to remove excess skin cells, dirt, and oils to minimize irritation and cuts from shaving. 6. Hydrocortisone cream – also good for itchy mosquito bites, apply a thin layer a few times a day. 7. Female aftershave – did not know that this product existed, or more so that there was aftershave specifically targeted towards women, but there you have it. 8. Tea tree oil – THIS I REPEAT UNDER DURESS. Tea tree oil products personally makes my skin burn with the wrath of a thousand suns, but many people find tea tree oil helpful for eczema, acne, and a variety of skin irritations, including razor burn. razorburnteatree 9. Apple cider vinegar – dilute with water, oil, or lotion to avoid the strong smell and possible burning sensation (really selling it, aren’t I?) – although it has those downsides, this method works very well. 10. Hot or cold compress – either will work, try both to see which one works best for you. 11. Honey – with it’s antibacterial properties, honey kills the bacteria that causes the red bumps from razor burn. Apply and let sit for 15-20 minutes before rinsing off, or look for lotions with honey as an ingredient. razorburnhoney Hopefully these tips will help the next time you need to soothe the savage skin. Or you could always just grow your hair out and let imaginary gnomes frolic in your legs’ enchanted forest (which is what I like to imagine is happening during my winter waxing wait).

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
