I know the feeling. I have been there and it totally F*&^%$# sucks. Either it’s right before a date, an interview or a wedding. It can happen to anyone to everyone. If you think about it, no one is going to nick themselves on purpose while shaving, right? Here are three most common reasons behind a person getting shaving cuts:
- Sensitive Skin: You know, how much you hate shaving because it hurts like hell and you know that 99% of the time that you are going to cut yourself shaving.
- Rushing: Going way too fast and not paying attention is another way people end up with shaving cuts.
- Ingrown hair: It can be hard when you are shaving around ingrown hair and if you are not careful with it, you will most likely end up with a shaving cut.
Here are my best solutions for stop bleeding after shaving nicks & cuts:
Styptic Balm: Glyder’s styptic balm is a patent-pending formula that uses anti-hemorrhagic agents which decreases post shave bleeding, and incorporates healing ingredients like aloe vera, vitamin E, Juju oil and argan oil.
Yarrow Powder: It’s anti-inflammatory, pain relieving, antimicrobial, and a good choice for shaving cuts, skinned knees, bleeding from mosquito bites, and other minor wounds.
Ice Cube: This is a great option because the cold ice can help with stop the bleeding.
