I don’t know about you guys, but I consider a mean case of razor burn to be THE most annoying shaving related skin problem around. Sadly, it is also the most common. Additionally, the products that claim to soothe and rid us of razor burn seem to do a much better job at ridding us of the contents of our wallets.
Luckily, there is a cheaper, healthier, and more effective solution. Below is a list of some of the best home remedies for razor burn. While there are literally hundreds of remedies claiming to treat razor burn, I thought it would be much more effective to stick with those that have proven to work and are present in most households.
Important: Avoid applying anything to which you might be allergic to.
While it may come as a surprise to you, due to having astringent qualities (a medical compound often used for skin treatment), aspirin makes for one of the best home remedies for razor burn treatment. In fact, the majority of expensive skin solutions for razor burn and razor bumps out there are glorified aspirins!
Tip: Using uncoated aspirin is a quicker process, as they melt faster.
While it may sound like a tasty dessert (it is), a facial mask made from strawberries and sour cream is an incredibly effective remedy for razor burn.
A double whammy in the home remedy department, apple cider vinegar will not only soothe the irritated skin, but also kill bacteria.
Witch Hazel is one of the most useful herbal healing plants out there, and a perfect choice for reducing the effects of razor burn. It is best applied immediately after the shave for prevention, but also works great later on for treatment.
