Let’s talk about Razor bumps. 👩🏻⚕️ Everyone hates them and is one of the questions that dermatologists get every single day: ⁉️ Why do you get them? Hair follicles that get trapped under the skin or curl back into skin create little bumps. These can get inflamed if repeated shaving or plucking is attempted. Patients with very curly or coarse hair are more prone ▪️ How do I Prevent them? 1. Take a hot shower first - it opens the pore for a better shave 2. Use Salicylic acid washes, glycolic acid or Benzoyl peroxide to gently exfoliate the skin 3. Close shaves are more prone to bumps 4. Shave IN the direction of hair growth 5. Use a shaving cream or moisturizing wash prior to shaving 6. Short strokes and hold skin taut - avoid repeatedly going over the same area to minimize irritation 7. Don’t use an old razor! - consider a #beveledrazor#bevel razors are at 30 degree bevel and allow for a close shave with only ONE blade so it’s not cutting hair below the skin leading to even more #razorbumps 8. Laser hair removal - remember to go to a #boardcertifieddermatologist or #boardcertifiedplasticsurgeon especially if you are skin of color ( the wrong laser at the wrong setting can definitely cause burns) ▪️ ▪️ #boardcertifieddermatologist#dermatologist#skincare#skincareroutine#razorbumps#dermatología#dermatología#shaving#clearskin#razor#razorcut#knowledge#skin
