Excessive use of after-shaves and colognes

Applying too much pressure while shaving can cause a razor burn owing to friction.
Insufficient skin lubrication is another cause.
Shaving in the direction opposite to hair growth is also a common cause for razor burns.
Excessive use of after-shaves and colognes can compound the problem of razor burns by causing dryness.



Stop shaving

The best way to deal with razor burns is to stop shaving. Give your skin some rest and simply let your hair grow back for a while.

Use a soothing after-shave balm if you are already suffering from razor burns.

For Burning Sensation

Dissolve two uncoated aspirins in a teaspoon of warm water and mix into a paste. Apply this paste on the affected area. Wash it after sometime with lukewarm water. This will take care of the burning sensation.

For Razor Burns

An effective razor burn mask can be made by mashing a couple of strawberries with a 1 spoon of sour cream. Apply this mixture after shaving and leave it for 10 minutes. Do this twice a week for fresh, razor burn free skin. Witch hazel, mild salicylic acid solutions and Aloe Vera gel are known to provide relief for razor burns.
