Whether you are thinking about rocking a thick, irreverent Galifianakis or a jawline-amping mown lawn, a beard is just about the most on-trend accessory you can pull. 

Chances are you need a little sculpting here and there. A little on the cheeks, a little on the neck depending on the kind of look you’re going for. Ideally, you’d leave that all to a pro.

A hot shave once a week isn’t realistic for most of us, though.

Have you ever wondered just what you’re doing wrong when it comes to shaving? It’s not like it’s rocket science, you know?! Luckily, with just a few small adjustments to your routine, you can become a razor bump rocket scientist in a matter of days.

According to Gillette the following are some of the tips that can help in managing razor bumps, ensuring a more comfortable shave and a gorgeous look.

Shave DailyClinical research shows that shaving daily can reduce the frequency of re-entrant hairs, which cause razor bumps. 

Prep before ShavingHydrate hair for three minutes with warm water and apply a moisturizing shave gel such as Gillette Series Protection Shave Gel formula with almond oil, to help reduce the razor drag that can cause skin irritation. 

Use A Superior Razor: Comfort is key for men with razor bumps. Select a quality razor like Gillette Blue 2 Plus so you can shave comfortably on a daily basis. The blades are spaced closer together to help reduce pressure for a more comfortable shave. 

Take It EasyUse gentle strokes when shaving. The razor should do the work, not you. Shave lightly and in the direction of beard hair. 

Blade ChangeFresh blades provide a closer, smoother, more comfortable shave. Replace your blades at the first sign of dullness or discomfort. 

Condition Skin: Refresh skin after shaving to soothe and moisturize it. Gillette Fusion HydraSoothe After-Shave Balm, which contains aloe-rich hydrating emollients to help comfort the skin after shaving.

Consult Your Dermatologist: Consult your dermatologist to determine an individualized course of action for your condition. Different degrees of PFB may require different treatment plans.
