I have the most sensitive skin. Trust me, I have tried so many different shaving creams, shaving gels, razors, and blades. I was so scared to shave sometimes knowing that I am going to cut myself and I will again find myself holding a freaking toilet paper on my face. We all have been there I think at some point in our life.
This article is for everyone who suffers from nicks & cuts or cutting themselves during the shaving process. Here are few hacks that I’ve used to stop the bleeding after cutting myself shaving.
- The Perfect Styptic Balm: This is the #1 product that works for me when it comes to healing shaving cuts. It’s made from aloe vera, vitamin E, argan oil, tea tree oil, and jojoba.
- Styptic Pencil: This is what our grandfathers have used for many years to stop the bleeding after shaving cuts. This never worked for me or stopped the bleeding for me.
- Yarrow Styptic Powder: Take the long fernlike leaves growing from the base of the plant and create a powder that you could put on the shaving cuts.
- Cayenne Pepper: Sprinkling on some cayenne pepper on your shaving cuts and see how it works. People swear by it.
- Tea Bag: Use a cooled-off tea bag. The tannic acid from the tea will help with the stop the bleeding from shaving cuts.
- Visine: People say this works. Apparently, it constricts the blood vessels.
- Ice Cube: Get an ice cube and apply it directly on your shaving cut. It will stop the bleeding on your shaving cut.
- Mouthwash: If you really do not have any other option this could be your choice. Since there is alcohol in the mouthwash, I can def tell you that it will burn.
- Toilet Paper: We all have done this. You know how it feels. Stop it.
- Hot Water: Just wet a washcloth with hot water and apply it directly on your shaving cut.
- Sugar: I think sugar can only stop a very little cut. The sugar will linger around the wound and kill the bacteria.
- Aspirin: Make a quick paste from aspirin and apply it directly on your shaving cut.
- Alum Block: The good old school alum black can be used directly on the shaving cut as well.
- Cold Water: Get a washcloth and run it under ice cold water and apply that cloth directly on your shaving cut.
