Jerrid and I both have been looking for products that can help sooth those annoying itchy bumps and get rid of them! Most products are just a major waste of money and precious time.
When you shave, you are irritating the top layer of your skin and also cutting the hair at that length. When the hair grows back it could sometimes grow under the skin causing an ingrown hair, or it could grow into another pore...which is strange, but it does happen. These are all razor irritations, burn and bumps. They suck, and they need to be taken care of. It's so embarrasing to go to the beach with razor burn and bumps around your bikini line. I also don't think hearing Jerrid complain about his razor bumps will ever be fun.
I know you probably have made up so many small routines to try to keep the bumps away.
- Waiting a week until you shave again (What if you have a hot pool party to go to tomorrow?)
- Using hair conditioner to shave (It's make shaving easier, but the bumps still come the next morning)
- Shaving in the morning rather than at night (They say it lasts longer)
- Using diaper rash cream afterwards (If it works for diaper rash it should work for razor burn?)
You might as well dry shave...OUCH!
This past weekend we stopped over to visit one of my bext friends, Melissa, and her boyfriend Fernando. Fernando was raving about this great product he's been using for his razor bumps, and Jerrid wanted in. Fernando was kind enough to give Jerrid a brand new bottle to keep for himself. Jerrid's been using it with great results!
I've tried it too, and it really helps get rid of those annoying bumps!
You put it on after you dry your skin when you're finished shaving. It's easy to apply. It's a clear oil type liquid that isn't greasy at all. You dab some on your finger...or just dab the top of the tube onto the area you want to treat, and rub it in. There is a slight burn for a few seconds right when you apply it to your skin, but it goes away.
The liquid dried up, makes your freshly shaved skin look and feel so smooth, and it also gives it a little hint of a shimmer! I guess it dries up to form a bit of a powder to help keep the skin soft and comfortable after shaving. It's so cool.
It was invented by a dentist by accident!
Read this story about Tend Skin that was on their website! (www.tendskin.com)
You can find Tend Skin for sale at Sephora but you can find it for a cheaper price elsewhere online. Just do some Google-ing and you never know what you can come up with! You can get it HERE for $9 bucks, or on Amazon for $7! (This is for the 4 oz. bottle)
In 1985, in an office in South Florida, a dentist was working on a patient. The patient was a private investigator. Medication was given to the patient to alleviate the pain associated with his treatment. Two days later, the patient noticed a dramatic improvement not only in the pain level, but in his skin as well. His face, which was full of razor bumps, had cleared up!
The man couldn't wait to tell the dentist what had happened. Early the next morning, he visited the dentist's office. "Doc, Doc! What did you give me? What was it?" The dentist was scared. He thought something was wrong, "Doc! Look! Look! My face is cleared up! My razor bumps are gone!"
The dentist, obviously confused, exclaimed, "What in the world are you talking about? What the heck are razor bumps?"
The investigator began to tell the dentist how important this discovery was. He mentioned that the dozens of products already on the market did not come close to producing the dramatic results he had achieved.
Realizing that the ingredient could not be taken internally for long periods of time, the two men experimented with the formula in an attempt to apply it directly to the skin. Eight long years of lab work, tests, and patents produced a very effective formula. The dentist had a great discovery.
Other uses for the formula arose in the same "chance" way that the formula was discovered. Women who bought the product for their husbands or boyfriends started trying it on the perpetual ingrown hair problems they had from shaving, waxing, and having electrolysis on their legs, bikini lines, and underarms. Not only did they report to the dentist that the ingrown hair problems had cleared, but that the formula worked as an excellent underarm deodorant.
