Reduce razor burn
Ouch! Why didn’t you remember to replace that razor blade before you started to shave?
Razor burn, or razor rash, is a skin irritation that can be caused by dry shaving, shaving that’s a little too aggressive, or shaving with dull blades. Typically, it arrives a few minutes after shaving, and can be in the form of a rash.
To soothe razor burn and relieve painful nicks and cuts, apply a wet tea bag to the affected area. The tannic acid in tea helps reduce redness and inflammation.
- Moisten a black tea bag in warm water.
- Allow the tea bag to cool or put it in the refrigerator for five to 10 minutes.
- Rub the cool tea bag over the affected area for two to three minutes.
- Repeat several times daily as needed.
And don’t forget to replace the blade before your next shave!
