Smooth Shaving: Soothe Razor Burn, Ingrown Hair, and Shaving Bumps

Prevent It: Don t keep your razor in the shower. The heat and humidity accelerate rusting and bacterial growth, says David Colbert, M.D. a dermatologist in New York City. Toss the blade after five uses, which is when it starts to get dull.

INGROWN HAIRS
Though a hair is to blame (an ingrown happens when a sliced-off strand curls back into the skin), it looks like a swollen zit.

Soothe It: Disinfect and de-clog the follicle with glycolic and salicylic acids, found in Bliss Ingrown Eliminating Pads ($38, blissworld.com ). Swipe over the area twice a day; expect results in a week.

Prevent It: Exfoliate weekly with a grainy body scrub like Burt s Bees Cranberry and Pomegranate Sugar Scrub ($13, at drugstores), which helps lift the hair out of the skin. If you have thick, coarse hair–which is most prone to becoming an ingrown hair –use a hair-growth inhibitor with Capislow daily. It has been proven to make hair finer and less dense in about a month. Try No!no! Smooth Skin Care After Treatment Cream ($50, drugstore.com ).

RED BUMPS
Smaller than ingrown hairs and less expansive than razor burn (four or five bumps versus 20), these are usually a mild allergic reaction to perfumed shaving cream. But the act of hair removal itself could also be the cause: As the blade slices the hair, it cuts the surface of the skin and–voila–inflammation.

Soothe It: Apply a thin layer of hydrocortisone followed by antibacterial ointment to ward off infection.

Prevent It: Swap your shaving cream for a fragrance-free basic body cleanser. Colbert likes Cetaphil Restoraderm Skin Restoring Body Wash ($15, drugstore.com ). On the bikini line, prewash with a drop of HibiClens Antimicrobial Skin Cleanser ($10, the onlinedrugstore.com ). The skin is so sensitive in that zone. This cleanser is used by surgeons, and it really wipes out any bacteria, which can exacerbate the reaction, he says.
