How to Soothe Shaving Irritation

Have you ever wondered how to soothe shaving irritation? For most dry, sensitive skin, shaving irritation is a big deal. Razor burn, shaving bumps, stinging, redness, and inflammation are realities for many people who are just after a clean, close shave!

If you have dry or sensitive skin, you’re at a higher risk of shaving irritation; however, any skin type can suffer from shaving side effects if they don’t take proper precautions. As with anything, the best way to soothe shaving irritation is to prevent it, so let’s start there!

When it comes to preventing shaving irritation, you’ll want to make sure of a few things. First, that you have a very sharp, clean razor. Many companies recommend using disposable razors only once (hence the name), though others say that razors can be safely used 2-3 times. Be sure to follow your brand’s instructions to help avoid shaving irritation.

Next, choose a shaving cream, lotion or gel that compliments your skin type. It should be free of clogging ingredients that can dull your razor, as well as harsh ingredients that can irritate skin and worsen shaving irritation. Alcohols, chemical fragrances, and any known allergens should be avoided.

Finally, shave in the direction of hair growth. As long as your razor is sharp and your skin clean and free of clogging shaving creams, this should provide you with a close, smooth shave. If you must shave against hair growth, do so carefully and slowly, being sure that your razor isn’t snagging or getting stuck on stubborn hair.

After following these steps, shaving irritation should be reduced or avoided altogether! However, if you find that you’re still experiencing razor burn or other forms of irritation, the best form of shaving treatment is our Moisture Mist.

Simply spray Moisture Mist onto any area of the skin affected by shaving irritation. The unique 360 degree design means it can be sprayed at any angle, making shave irritation treatment easy! MLE and hyaluronic acid work together to instantly calm skin with lasting hydration while the advanced properties of MLE work to restore the skin’s natural lipid barrier. Palmitoyl pentapeptide-4 promises anti-aging skin care actions that help restore a youthful, radiant glow.

Use Moisture Mist on the face or body after shaving, or as needed to restore moisture throughout the day! It’s a great on-the-go product, and can easily be used to after sun care, to set makeup, or even in lieu of a traditional body lotion.

Moisturizing Oily and Acne-Prone Skin

Believe it or not, oily skin and acne-prone skin need to moisturize, too. If you experience excess oil or acne, you may feel like the last thing your skin needs is an emollient, but it’s actually essential to your skin’s health! The truth is, a good acne moisturizer may even help your skin become clearer and more beautiful.

Moisturizing success for acne-prone skin lies in your product choice. Choose wisely, and your skin will thank you. Choose poorly, and you risk breakouts and even oilier skin. So, the first step is to know exactly what you’re looking for.

Skin care moisturizers formulated with exfoliators and natural skin care oils are great for oily and acne-prone skin. Just be sure that the oils are truly natural — great ingredients to look for include jojoba seed oil, meadowfoam oil, and tea tree oil, which is highly beneficial for acne-prone skin. Exfoliators that may help your skin include salicylic acid or alpha hydroxy acids.

Your moisturizer for oily skin should be labeled non-comedogenic, which means that it won’t cause pores and lead to breakouts. As far as texture is concerned, skin care lotions are usually lighter-weight and may be more comfortable for very oily skin, while moisturizers or skin care creams are usually heavier and may be uncomfortable for acne skin.

Finally, your problem skin may not stop at oil and acne. If your skin is also sensitive, choose a hydrating product that is hypoallergenic and fragrance-free. These attributes will help ensure that your skin doesn’t experience a reaction caused by the moisturizer.

With these tips, you’re sure to comfortably and efficiently moisturize your oily, blemish-prone skin without risk of breaking out. Properly moisturized, your skin may be able to balance itself while appearing healthier and more beautiful than ever.

Travel-Friendly Skin Care

There’s no place like home for the holidays, but what if home is far away? Car heaters, airplane air, stress, and flitting in and out of different climates can all damage your skin, leaving it feeling dry and uncomfortable. Rather than show up at home with acne breakouts and blotches, follow these travel-friendly skin care tips for keeping your skin merry and bright.

Don’t Pack Light
When it comes to lightening your suitcase’s load, the first things to go are usually personal care items. Mom will have toothpaste, and I can pick up some shampoo while I’m there, you think. All of this is fine and dandy as long as you don’t leave your skin care products behind! If you’ve been taking good care of your skin, you won’t be able to pick up duplicates at the drugstore, so be sure to pack your hand-chosen skin care regimen to keep your skin looking and feeling great.

Use a Mini-Routine
We all know how hectic the holidays can get. Between family dinners, outings, and the holiday festivities themselves, skin care if often forgotten. Since skin is clearly not the star of the season, there’s no need to become hypervigilant about maintaining your normal routine. However, inventing a mini-routine is a must for keeping skin beautiful! Skip the exfoliation, but be sure to cleanse. Cut down on your specialty makeup products (like eye brighteners and bronzers), but continue using protective minerals.

Another way to create a more efficient routine is to invest in a multi-tasking product or two. A cleanser-toner combination, for example, or a tinted moisturizer will save you a lot of time. One of the best examples of this is Atopalm BB Cream, a hydrating lotion that also provides broad-spectrum SPF 20 protection and a brightening mineral tint for perfecting the complexion. That’s three uses in one application, and at $19.99, this beauty balm cream may soon become a must for your home routine, too.

Protect, Protect, Protect
Physical protection is hugely underrated when it comes to beauty and winter skin care. Using protective skin care products is wonderful, but one of the best ways to prevent chapping, redness, and discomfort is to physically protect against the elements. Wrap a soft scarf around your neck and pull a knit hat over your ears and forehead to protect against harsh winter winds. Be sure to wear sunglasses or goggles when skiing, and don’t forget that physical mineral-based sunblock, which protects skin by creating an undetectable layer of minerals, rather than sinking into the skin like chemical sunscreens.

Keeping your skin healthy, comfortable, and beautiful shouldn’t be a stress this holiday season. Just be sure to keep these skin care tips in mind while traveling (or even at home!), and you’ll be sure to look as wonderful as you feel.
