Shaving can easily become a hassle when the simple act of taking a razor to hair turns into something painful. Avoid bumps and irritation of the skin by using products that produce a superior shaving experience.
Razor bumps, also called pseudofolliculitis barbae, are small, irritated bumps on the skin that develop after shaving when strands of hair curl back on themselves and grow into the skin. Razor bumps cause irritation and the development of pimples. They may also cause scarring. These bumps are common among men and women with tightly coiled hair. Razor bumps tend to be more of a problem for men than women though since many men shave their faces daily.
In order to keep razor bumps from occurring, especially on facial skin, it is important to use products that prevent hair ends from becoming trapped. Theraderm Cleansing Wash is available in a 16 oz pump bottle. This is perfect to keep in the shower for daily use. Use ½ teaspoonful of cleansing wash (two pumps) to wash hair and all facial beard area. Thoroughly lather into hair. Leave in place for 30 seconds to one minute while completing shower, then rinse hair and face. Notice how the facial skin is “squeaky clean” like a mirror just cleaned with Windex!
After your shower, use your choice of shaving gel or lather (Theraderm Cleansing Wash also works well for actual shaving) with your razor and shave as normal. Notice how the shaving process is extremely gentle, close and smooth. Rinse face and pat dry.
Apply a small amount of Theraderm Fruit Acid Exfoliant to facial skin. This lactic acid/alcohol product stimulates exfoliation of the rim of hair follicles and facial surface skin to prevent hair ends from becoming “trapped.”
Next apply a “green pea” size dollop of Theraderm OPC Reparative Serum and spread thinly and evenly over the entire face. This product moisturizes skin while providing super antioxidants to repair and rejuvenate skin.
An added benefit is having skin restored to a younger and healthier look at the same time from using Theraderm products.
Another benefit is for razor blades to last 5-6 times as long due to use in cutting softened hair that has been completely wetted by the simple use of Theraderm Cleansing Wash. Enjoy the best shaving experience ever and “bumps” be gone!
