So you break out after shaving???


About your break-outs regarding shaving..

It is a common misconception that shaving out breaks is the result of clogged pores.
They are in grown hairs.
This problem can be solved..
Try these three things..

1.Change the direction of your shave.. instead of moving the razor up... shave with the gain of your hair growth.
by doing this you will avoid ingrown hairs, and you will avoid the irritation of hair growing in the thinner skin.
If you feel you aren’t getting a close enough shave this way try going a bit sideways (in the growth direction) using short gentle strokes..
2.Use a good razor..one with a very sharp blade..and a pivoting head.
Change the blade often (every 4-5 shaves).. especially if you have sensitive skin..
3.Use a lathering shave crème that is made just for sensitive skin.
These are thinner than most shave gels and crèmes and will help reduce the chance of you cutting yourself or scraping your skin.
Look for a shave crème that contains glycerin to moisturize and a coconut oil to moisturize.
Stay away from products with mineral oil (which will clog your pores) and avoid menthol , numbing ingredients and benzocaine.. these are known to irritate sensitive skin.

Hope this helps keep you smooth..

Chris, I have been told that for under the arm you should shave both directions b/c grain is both directions is this true?

see where the grain is for the hairs.. going back and forth under the arm can cause out break..
Have you tried waxing that area? or a creme dipilatory for under arms and bikini line..
A razor is a bit harsh for those areas..

Yes! I just started waxing this summer... after having many years of awful irritations from shaving all summer.. I progressed slowly started with one area...then got brave and moved to the under the arm (ouch..but loved not having to shave!)

Do you recommend waxing or the creme as a preffered method? And one more question do you recommend having this done always in a spa type environment or in home (over the counter type products)?

Christine~ THANKS! Thank You! I love all the info I get from you!

Oh yeah and I guess I really have one more question...

I finally this year started having my eye brows waxed as well (so far only twice) the first was great no problems.. but after the second time I had small red bumps come up in the area waxed? Anything I can do to prevent this or was something done wrong?

Alway have any service done by a licensed professional.
In home units don't really get the job done.. and it is hard getting all the areas yourself..

Cremes vs. wax.. this depends on you.
Some individuals have a reaction to wax..
As far as the 1st time you waxed the brow you did fine the 2nd.. you had bumps..
This is hard to say..
Did the wax feel too hot when applied?
Did the teck. clean the area real well before wax was applied?
Were you on any medication that she felt may cause a reaction?
Was a tonic applied after the wax was removed? If so was it different than the 1st time?

There are many reasons this could have happend..

Remember.. ask a lot a lot of questions before you have a service done..
Be very sure you are confident with the person who is tending to your needs..
It really is ALL ABOUT YOU..
