Summer Skin Care: How To Treat Razor Bumps

Summer fashion trends may come and go, but the one thing that remains in season is soft and smooth skin. Unfortunately, the razors, waxes, and depilatories used to achieve such results often cause enough irritation to make you choose denim jeans over a short sundress.

Razor bumps--formally known as Psuedofolliculitis barbae--can crop up anytime and anywhere that hair is removed. But more specifically, they are often caused by hair that is cut at an angle causing it to retract into the skin, which responds by treating it like a pollutant. The good news is, there is no need to cover up for long because gloProfessional makes treating razor bumps easy.

Sooth irritation with an intense moisturizer like Barrier Balm. The essential oils and vitamins have antimicrobial properties that kill bacteria while hydrating the skin.



Stop razor bumps from forming by waiting two to three days between hair removal treatments and using Soothing Salt Scrub. The Dead Sea salts and essential oils draw out toxins, reduce inflammation, and most importantly, remove the dead skin cells that are blocking pores.


Smooth out existing razor bumps with Ingrown X-It Solution. The salicylic and lactic acids help to open pores, which release trapped follicles.
