There’s nothing worse than having to shave when your skin has erupted with razor bumps. “Ingrown hairs are the result of whiskers that do a U-turn and grow back into and under the skin, creating a razor bump. The best way to avoid such issues is via regular cleansing and with a targeted face scrub. Such scrubs will un-earth ingrown hairs making it easier for the razor to take them off”, says Mike Gilman founder of the Grooming Lounge. Look for these products that fight razor bumps with a one, two punch. Most utilize Salicylic or Glycolic Acid to exfoliate dead surface cells and free ingrown hairs. They can also heal and calm your skin with soothing ingredients like chamomile and aloe.
Grooming Lounge The Shavior
Gilman suggests Grooming Lounge’s very own Shavior. “It uses ingredients that both uproot and dissolve ingrown hairs while calming down tender, persnickety skin”. This award winning treatment is a botanical-loaded lotion that goes to work on razor irritation, bumps and ingrown hairs. Dab it on to spot treat a problem area or slather it on after you shave. This barber-tested formulation will moisturize your skin while infusing it with antioxidants and a tad of sun protection.
