How long does bikini line razor burn last? Pointers to combat the irritation.

Razor Burn Treatment

If you are experiencing razor burn on your bikini line you aren't the only person. In fact, you'd actually be surprised how many others go through the exact same thing. This blog post will go over what razor burn is, why you get it and what you can do to combat it in the future specifically for your bikini line. 

What is razor burn? 

Razor burn is a skin condition that can occur after shaving your face, legs, or other body parts. The symptoms of razor burn include; redness, irritation, bumps and even ingrown hairs. It's often uncomfortable and can lead to not wanting to wear a bikini (if on the bikini line). Overall... razor burn is frustrating! 

What's the science behind getting razor burn? 

Shaving imposes a constant stress on the skin. There is something called our lipid barrier layer, which keeps moisture in the tissues and controls the entry of external chemicals into the deeper layers of the skin. When shaving you can compromise this layer, which results in dehydrated skin.

What can I do to prevent and treat razor burn? 

Preventing Razor Burn 

To prevent razor burn we have a specific routine we find highly effective. It starts with our signature product Bushbalm Soothing Oils, which you can use every single day to help moisturize the skin and hair. By moisturizing daily you'll notice the skin and hair will soften. As a result, when you go to shave or wax your bikini line the hair will cut much easier, causing less stress to the lipid barrier layer. 

In addition to using our soothing oils daily, we'd recommend dry brushing your bikini line for 3-5 minutes prior to showering daily. This will help exfoliate your skin and make the lipid barrier layer stronger and more resilient.

Treating Razor Burn 

If you get razor burn, you can treat it with a natural ingrown hair serum. We'd recommend using our Nude Oil, as it contains a higher percentage of Tea Tree oil to help soothe and clear up any razor burn you experience.

To conclude, razor burn is something you can get ahead of. By moisturizing, exfoliating and treating your razor burn you can make the skin stronger and more resilient. Eliminating razor burn on your bikini line is just as much treating it, as it is preventing it from happening in the first place.

What is an ingrown hair cream? 

There are limited options on the market, but you'll find many creams that deem themselves suitable to soothe or prevent ingrown hairs. Many of these products are a thinner cream, which promote calming and soothing properties. 

Here's what you need to know about non-comedogenic products 

If a product doesn't support a non-comedogenic claim it's likely to clog your pores. This is hugely important when ordering a product to help with ingrown hairs. If the cream does clog pores you will notice many effects that are less than desirable. 

Some effects of using ingrown hair creams 

  • Your skin could become oily 

  • You may see spots become infected

  • If you are prone to acne, it could cause similar bumps
