To curve the outbreak of razor bumps do the following:
•Before shaving: Wet your hair with warm water and apply a good shaving cream prior to shaving. Let the shaving cream sit for about a minute and a half as it will reduce friction and prevent irritation. This will soften the hair making it easier to cut evenly.
•While shaving: Use a single-blade or an electric shaver instead of a double or triple blade razor. Double and triple blades tend to shave too close to the skin, thus increasing the probably of razor bumps resulting.
•Routinely replace your razor blade to prevent infection and to allow the blade to remain sharp.
•Shave in the direction of hair growth.
•Do not pull or stretch your skin while shaving; let is stay natural to prevent the likelihood of hair curving back into the skin
