Most of us have a defined skincare routine that we practise every day. Once we’re out the shower or bath, we faithfully apply our products, like toner and moisturiser, each day to make sure that our skin is soft, supple, and looks youthful.
But there is one part of our bodies that we can all say we’ve been guilty of forgetting about during our skincare routines, and that is our underarms.
Shaving our underarms can often result in a rash that is painful and unsightly. Hair follicles can become ingrown, which can also be agonisingly itchy and with all the scratching that results, they may become infected, too.
So, what can you do to avoid razor burn in your armpits? Follow our 5 simple rules and you should be living with pain- and itch-free underarms forever!
Step 1: Loose Clothing
Clothing that is tight around your underarms will rub and cause friction, making your razor burn worse. Opt for 100% cotton shirts and dresses that give your underarms room to breathe.
Step 2: Soak Skin
While it’s no good for your skin to have a long, hot shower or bath, particularly in winter; you should wait a few minutes before shaving your underarms so that the skin is softer and hair is more raised.
Step 3: With the Grain
Shaving along the direction that your hair lies will help a great deal to reduce bumpy razor burn.
Step 4: Ask your Doc
Most of the time, your underarm rash will abate within a few days, but if it doesn’t, or if you follow our steps for preventing razor and but you’re still suffering, see your GP. It could be a symptom of something more serious that requires medical attention.
Step 5: Moisturise
Don’t forget to moisturise with a natural product as soon as you’re out the shower or bath. BioSeal is ideal for treating razor burn.
