They can ruin your self-confidence and make you appear sloppy and unhygienic. They can utterly ruin that sharp and clean-cut look you were going for. Fear not, friends. I am going to tell you what razor bumps are, how to get rid of razor bumps, and how to avoid ever getting them again. Read on and I will have you looking your best in no time!

Razor bumps are actually ingrown hairs that occur after shaving. The tiny stubs of your shaven hairs begin to double back onto themselves and attempt to re-enter the skin. This causes the dreaded razor bumps, as well as acne and scarring. Known officially as ” pseudofolliculitis barbae”, razor bumps are an unsightly plague upon the skin. Fortunately, there are a variety of remedies that will help you get rid of these ugly blemishes. Some may be even hiding in your home right now.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is an essential oil that contains naturally occurring antibacterial properties. Tea tree oil can be used to treat existing razor bumps effectively, but is important to note that with any essential oil caution must be used. Tea tree oil is extremely strong, both in it’s astringent and antibacterial properties as well as it’s odor. You must dilute this oil with water to keep it from being too harsh on the skin, and you must use it sparingly unless you enjoy a strong scent that might remind you of kerosene or a raging tire fire.

Lemon Juice

What CAN’T lemon juice do? Besides being a decent cleaning agent as well as a food preserver, lemon juice can also help treat razor bumps. Lemon juice is naturally acidic, which will help destroy any bacteria threatening to turn your razor bumps into a nasty breakout of acne. Relatively safe and much cheaper than tea tree oil, it may prove to be your go-to in treating your razor bumps. You will, however, want to be sure not to use it around your eyes. This begs the question: why would you be shaving your eyes?

Hot Towel

By far the safest, and possibly most effective treatment for razor bumps is a good old hot towel. Get a wash rag wet with the warmest water you can tolerate, squeeze, and slap that towel down wherever your razor bumps have occurred. Let it rest there for awhile, ten minutes or so. The idea is that the warm moisture will naturally open up your follicles and allow the inverted hair to release from the skin. It will also draw blood cells nearer to the surface of the skin, where they will attack any bacteria that may try to sneak. A hot towel is the method I use and the only one I whole-heartedly recommend.

How To Avoid Razor Bumps In the First Place

The best way to avoid razor bumps is to use a clean, sharp razor every time. If you can find one of those old-timey straight razors like your grandfather used to use, and you can keep it properly sharp, this would be the best method in keeping razor bumps at bay. Also, never shave a cold face. Cold temperatures causes the skin to prickle (think goose bumps) and you end up shaving a small layer of skin along with the hair, leaving a welcome mat for bacteria and infection. Shave WITH the grain. If your hair is growing downward, shave with a downward stroke. The opposite will cause you to lift and cut the hair along with a small amount of skin, as mentioned above. We don’t want that.

Use an aftershave. They are not there to simply smell good. The alcohol contained within will first destroy any lingering bacteria looking for a way into your pores. Simultaneously, it will cause your pores to shrink. This will keep any pesky hairs that want to be ingrown from finding easy purchase, as well as prevent any bacteria STILL lingering from entering as well.

Razor bumps are a condition that affect many people across the planet. This is perplexing. Avoiding razor bumps is not nearly so hard as it may seem. If you follow the advice in this article, you will be looking great and ready to start your day.

How to treat a stye ?

Often times, a lot of people pay little or no attention to the eye – even though it’s one of the most important body organs. Individuals should develop a habit of examining their eyes to detect any abnormalities. Among the things that one can notice is a lump. Most of the lumps can not only be very uncomfortable, but also painful.

The presence of a lump in the eye, particularly on the eyelid, may mean that you have a stye – resulting from a blocked gland. Some of the signs to look out for include redness, pain, and slight swelling on the eyelid. Others include sensitivity to light, a burning sensation, and discomfort when blinking.

The good news is that, apart from the fact that styes don’t affect vision, and there are easy ways of getting rid of stye.

How can one get rid of a stye?

It is worth noting that styes usually heal without the need for treatment within 1-3 weeks. However, there are simple ways through which the symptoms can be eased. They include:

1. A warm compress

A flannel or piece of cloth warmed with hot water is held against the affected eye or eyes. While a stye will most likely affect one of the eyes, sometimes they may appear in both eyes and multiple styes in one eye. Care should be taken not to utilize excessively hot water, and more so on kids.

The warm compress should be held over the affected eye for about five to ten minutes. This should be repeated 3 to 4 times per day until the bump disappears or pus is seen coming out of the lump. The pus is released due to the warmth of the compress, and when this happens, the symptoms should improve much faster. Remember to keep the affected area of the eye not only clean but also devoid of crusting.

2. Tea bags

Place moistened tea bags over the affected part of the eye and leave it for approx. 8 to 10 minutes. This should be repeated a couple of times daily. Antibacterial herbs such as chamomile and dandelion tea bags are highly recommended. This is among the most common home remedies for getting rid of styes, primarily because tea bags are very effective as far as calming the infection is concerned.

3. Coriander seeds

The majority of remedies of styes comprise of items lying in the kitchen cabinets. Who would think that coriander seeds can help get rid of a stye? One only needs to boil one teaspoon of these golden seeds in a cup of water and then use the end results to wash the eye 3 to 4 times a day.

4. Turmeric

Popularly known for its great potential to reduce belly fat, turmeric also comes in handy when it comes to the treatment of a stye. One teaspoon of turmeric powder is put into 2 cups of water and brought to a boil until the solution reduces to 1 cup. The preparation is then passed through a sieve to get rid of all the granules. The final product is then used as eye drops 2 to 3 times daily.

Preventative measures include:

If you get a stye once, there are chances it will happen yet again. As such, preventative measures should be put in place to avoid future occurrence. Below are ways through which styes can be prevented.

· Cleaning the eyelids daily using special eye-scrub soap or a diluted baby shampoo

· Those using glasses or spectacles should disinfect contact lenses as instructed

· Dispose and replace liquid eyeliners, mascara, and eyeshadow every three months

· Ensuring complete removal of all eye makeup before going to bed

· Avoid sharing washcloths or towels with anyone having a stye

· Wash your hands regularly
