BEARD BUMPSHair bumps are a direct result of ingrown hairs and come from several things including: improper shaving, waxing, or tweezing techniques, a dirty barber’s blade, dead skin in the hair follicles, and coarse hair that grows in a tight curl pattern. Ingrown hairs develop at the end of the hair shaft. They have a sharpened edge and attempt to grow straight, however something prevents them from doing so. As a result, they curl back into the same hair follicle. This creates dreadful, ugly, and often confidence destroying facial or razor bumps. Yet, razor bumps are nothing more than an inflammatory response from your body to the infections caused by the ingrown hairs. This inflammatory response or bump can be visually seen as a pustule, mini red bumps, or purple raised bump. The infected areas are often itchy and red, with bumps that spread quickly. The more you scratch your ingrown bumps, the more abrasions you will have. This condition is known as Pseudofolliculitis barbae.
(1)Keep the infected area bacteria-free. You can accomplish this by washing the infected area with a bacteria-killing soap, such as SafeGuard. As with all things, the sooner in the process you start trying to get rid of your face, aftershave, neck, bikini and razor bumps, the quicker they will be gone. The biggest mistake most people make when it comes to face, aftershave, neck, bikini and razor bumps is trying to ignore that they exist. This can prove to be a costly mistake, literally and physically, because ignoring your razor bumps with continuous shaving only allows the infected area to grow larger in size and become more infected.
(2)A quality natural hair bump product, persistance, and time.
