How to Avoid Razor Burn with The Power of Aloe

How to Avoid Razor Burn with The Power of Aloe
By TriDerma March 22, 2018 No comments

Feeling the burn from your razor? If you’ve ever had a red rash after shaving, you were most likely experiencing razor burn. Razor burn can develop for a number of reasons, such as using an old razor, shaving in the wrong direction or too quickly, using products that irritate your skin, or neglecting to moisturize your skin. TriDerma is here to bring you tips and tricks to prevent razor burn so you can avoid that post-shower discomfort.

Replace Your Razor Blade Frequently

A razor should slide smoothly across your skin. Sometimes your razor will snag your skin, which may indicate that the blade is becoming dull and needs to be replaced. The life of your razor is determined by how often you shave. Blades on female razors begin to dull after 5-10 shaves, while male razor blades last for only 3-4 shaves. You should also be aware of any rusting on the surface of the razor blade. The best way to prevent rust is to store your razor is a clean, dry place instead of inside the shower.

Shave in the Direction Your Hair Grows

Did you know that shaving in thesame direction your hair grows is a sure way to cut back on irritation? Shaving with the grain, as opposed to against it, will decrease the likelihood of razor burn, cuts and nicks. Once your skin is properly moisturized and your hair is shortened (don’t wait too long between shaving; we recommend every 2-3 days), shaving against the direction that your hair grows becomes much safer and will allow for the shave you want.

Apply Aloe-Based Products Before and After You Shave

Using a razor that is clogged with hair, soap, or shaving cream can also lead to razor burn. If you find yourself shaving in a certain area too frequently, you’re putting that fresh, healthy and radiant looking skin in jeopardy. This is why it’s crucial to prep your skin with moisturizing products before and after you shave to best protect your skin. TriDerma’s Extra Pure Healing Gel is packed with AP4 organic aloe complex, which acts as a soothing shaving gel. After you shave, apply TriDerma’s Sensitive Skin Healing Moisturizer to help lock in moisture and prevent irritation. The Sensitive Skin Healing Moisturizer also contains beeswax which acts as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-bacterial agent to help calm and soften skin.

With proper razor maintenance and skin preparation, you can finally kiss your razor burn goodbye once and for all. For more information on TriDerma’s medical-strength skin care products, visit or contact us at
