How to Prevent Razor Bumps
Shave after your shower - Let the hair soften in the hot water while you shower, or use a towel soaked in hot water on your face for a minute or two before shaving.
Use a shaving oil under your shaving cream - An oil will help your razor to glide smoother across your face instead of dragging and pulling.
Apply shaving cream with a shaving brush - A better application of cream leads to a smoother, safer shave.
Use a safety razor or straight razor - A single blade will not tend to cut the hair follicle under the surface of the skin, which leads to ingrown hair and razor bumps.
Exfoliate your skin - Cleaning your face of all old skin cells makes for a healthy complexion, as well as helping to prevent razor bumps and ingrown hair.
Shave with the grain of growth, not against it. Ingrown hairs abound when shaving against the grain if you're susceptible to them.
