In this write up, I want to bring everyone up to date on the real cause of razor bumps and how to get rid of razor bumps quickly
What Are Razor Bumps [Shaving Bumps] And How Are They Caused?
Razor Bumps [Shaving Bumps], also referred to [incorrectly] as ingrown hairs are Primarily caused by the Trauma from Shaving, resulting in inflammation of the shaved area manifested as “bumps” as the body reacts to the trauma, compounded at times by Bacterial/Fungal Infections. Induction of Melanogenesis by Irritated keratinocytes during shaving produces additional inflammatory mediators exacerbating the condition [this is the main reason why men of color with higher levels of melanin have a higher incidence of shaving bumps]”
What Are Ingrown Hairs/Entrapped Hairs and How are they Caused?
Ingrown hairs [more appropriately referred to as entrapped hairs] result when existing shaving bumps [caused by shaving] block the opening of the hair follicles on the skin forcing the normally growing hairs to grow into the existing bumps [blocking the hair follicles] as they try to find a way to exit [hence the name ‘ingrown hairs’].
Shaving Bumps precede ingrown hairs and as such ingrown hairs are Not the cause of shaving bumps.
BREEJ Technologies disagrees with the widely held [and incorrect] view that Shaving Bumps are caused by “ingrown” hairs – wiry, curly hairs that curl and grow back into the skin.” This concept of “in-grown” hairs has led to a lot of poking & probing of the shaved area with tweezers often further aggravating the problem. BREEJ discourages this practice as the additional trauma can lead to infection, hyper pigmentation and significant skin damage.
It is practically impossible [based on the structure of the Stratum Corneum] for the hair outside the skin [or hair cut at an angle] to curl and grow back into the skin contrary to what is claimed and published by many!” according to Dr Anaebonam, Chief Scientist of BREEJ Technologies
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET RID OF RAZOR BUMPS?
Use a good Anti-Bump Product or Kit [formulated with powerful anti inflammatories, anti bacterials, anti fungals and skin conditioners such as:
BUMP ZAPPER Severe Bumps Kit
BUMP TERMINATOR Severe Bump Lotion
BUMP TERMINATOR Extra Strength Severe Bump Lotion
BUMP TERMINATOR Alcohol Free Anti Bump Serum For Women
BUMP TERMINATOR Anti-Razor Bump Serum For Women
Once the razor bumps ore eliminated, the ingrown [entrapped] hairs are freed and can be shaved off easily
SHOULD I SHAVE IF I HAVE RAZOR BUMPS [SHAVING BUMPS; INGROWN HAIRS]?
No – You must first resolve existing Razor Bumps [Shaving Bumps; Ingrown hairs] prior to resumption of shaving
Shaving over existing bumps [especially with classic razors] will only worsen the condition
HOW SHOULD I GET RID OF DAMAGED/DARKENED SKIN CAUSED BY SHAVING BUMPS?
Use a good Skin Repair And Brightening Cream Product [formulated with powerful skin repair agents, skin brighteners and skin conditioners to resolve damaged/darkened skin such as the Bump Zapper Skin Repair And Brightening Cream
HOW SHOULD I ENSURE THAT RAZOR BUMPS [INGROWN HAIRS DO NOT COME BACK]?
