Shaving bumps: Is there a way to get rid of them for good?

  1. Shave after washing your face with warm water; even better, after a shower, since heat and humidity soften the beard.
  2. Shaving with a razor blade is preferable to using an electric razor. Electric razors crush the hairs of the beard, and they may penetrate and wound the skin.
  3. Shave in one direction: from top to bottom. Shaving in two directions goes against the grain of the beard and can cause the tips of the hairs to penetrate and wound the skin.
  4. Change razor blades every 7-10 days for the sake of both hygiene and easy shaving.
  5. Use a shaving gel, preferably one for sensitive skin.
  6. Leave the gel (or shaving cream) on the face for three-four minutes before you begin to shave.
  7. Do not use after-shave lotions too often, some of them cause allergies.
  8. After shaving apply an oil-free sunscreen to protect your skin.
