How to treat shaving rash

How to treat shaving rash

This is a subject close to our heart here at Pure Shave, it’s the main reason we developed our shaving cream in the first place. 

It turns out, shaving rash is quite common, and most people who shave have experienced it at some point. Legs, face or wherever, shaving can disrupt the natural oils and moisture of the skin, leaving it exposed to bacteria and other irritants. It can also cause micro-tears in the skin, leaving it more susceptible to infection. Check out our YouTube video HERE for more info on why we developed our shaving cream.

Whether you use Pure Shave or not there are several ways to prevent and treat this problem. Here are some tips to help you get rid of shaving rash and achieve smooth, irritation-free skin.

Prepare Your Skin 

Before shaving, it’s important to prepare your skin. This includes washing your face with warm water to remove dirt and oils, and using a gentle exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin cells. This will help to prevent ingrown hairs and reduce the risk of irritation. 

Handy Tip

 If you are particularly sensitive to shaving rash you can use Pure Shave Shaving cream as a Pre Shave Balm to really kick razor burn into touch! Apply a small amount of our shaving cream to the area you are shaving about 10 minutes before you actually shave – works wonders!!

Use the Right Products

Using the right products can make a big difference in reducing the risk of shaving rash. A good shaving cream should be rich in moisturising ingredients to help protect and hydrate the skin. Additionally, look for products that contain ingredients like aloe vera, vitamin E, and glycerin, which are known for their skin-soothing properties.

Shave in the Right Direction

When shaving, it’s important to go in the direction of hair growth to minimise skin irritation. This will also help to reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. There is obviously a balance here between wanting to get a close shave and wanting to reduce shaving rash – Pure Shave Shaving Cream will allow you to shave in any direction rash free!

Take your time

If you suffer from shaving rash and razor burn its important not to rush your shave. Take your time to really massage the shaving cream into your stubble and when shaving make sure to rinse your blade often with very warm water. Start by rinsing after every stroke of the blade and see how you get on. Another really important point is, don’t press too hard, let the blade do the work. 

Re visit the bits you have missed 

You will probably miss a few bits of stubble – one great advantage of using Pure Shave Shaving Cream is that there will be enough residual cream on your face to allow you to go back over areas that you have missed without having to re- apply new shaving cream. 

Moisturise After Shaving

After shaving, it’s important to moisturise your skin. This will help to soothe any irritation and hydrate the skin, reducing the risk of redness and itching. Check out our Mosituriser buyers guide HERE 

Top moisturising Tip

 We found when using moisturisers they tend to work so much better if you allow you skin to dry naturally and come down to room temperature . This helps to avoid excess sweating that sometimes occurs if you are too hot when applying the  moisturiser.
