No More Razor Bumps With These Awesome Tips!

But, you should use caution or you'll have razor bumps and burns

Are you gearing up for the much-awaited date with the person you’ve been crushing on for ages? Or it is the wedding season? Either way, we understand that you want to look really good, and a part of looking good and well-groomed is getting rid of unwanted hair. Right from shaping your eyebrows to cleaning that upper lip area to make that little mustache vanish, unwanted hair is a big no-no. Then, there are underarms, hands, and legs to worry about, too. After all, if you’re planning to strut in that halter neck little black dress, unwanted hair is the last thing you’d want.

Even though women have the option of waxing and hair removal creams to take care of their underarms, hands, and legs, when there are ‘emergency’ situations, the razor is always the go-to thing. Even though razors are handy and save your day many-a-times, the sore feeling after you’re done is enough to discourage you from using them again.

Here are a few ways to get rid of the painful razor bumps.

Baking Soda

It doesn’t just make your cakes fluffy and soft; it helps get rid of razor bumps as well. Thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties it has, baking soda will soothe the skin and prevent irritation. Sodium bicarbonate takes care of pH imbalances caused by the razor, which is why it is very helpful. Take a tablespoon of baking soda and dissolve it in one cup of water. Soak a piece of cotton in the mixture and keep dabbing it on the affected area for five minutes before washing off.

Baby Powder

Baby powder is one of the most effective remedies for those awful razor burns. After you’re done shaving, your skin tends to feel itchy, and the burning sensation that accompanies it just makes matter worse. In such times, fall back on the powder that works like magic even on something as sensitive as a baby’s skin. Sprinkle baby powder on the area you are going to shave 10 minutes before you do, and repeat the process after you are done with the shaving.


Thanks to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, honey is a great way to take care of the painful aftermath of the razor. Many recommend using honey as a replacement for shaving cream, but even applying it after the shaving is done will help soothe the red marks and soreness.


Sugar is a good way to help the sore skin. All you have a need to do is take two tablespoons of sugar, mix it with four tablespoons of coconut oil and one tablespoon of nectar. Apply on the affected area, leave it for a while and rinse off.


It isn’t just a cure for aches and fever; it also helps relieve razor bumps as well! Two aspirins and a teaspoon of warm water are all you need to get an instant cure for these painful razor burns. Using this mixture on the affected area twice a day will bring you some relief from the burning sensation.

Strawberry Paste

It’s so tasty that there are chances that you will lick some off, but as delicious as it sounds, strawberry paste also works wonders on razor burns. Blend crushed strawberries with any soothing cream. Apply it to the affected area and leave it on for 10-15 minutes before washing it off. It’ll soothe your skin and smell incredible as well.


With these tips at your disposal, your shaving experience will be much better. Razor burns can be prevented, but even if you can’t, these tricks will help you step out with all your sassiness, minus the sore skin.
