Friends made a last-minute plan to go out, you wanted to wear that new dress, so you ended up shaving your legs with a razor. And to your horror, instead of smooth legs, you now have a few, red bumps that feel tender to the touch. Razor bumps have struck once again and are about to ruin your plans. But this time instead of swapping that dress for jeans, how about you fix those bumps instead? We will show you how!

Apply moisturiser
 

Apply moisturiser

A soothing body lotion or moisturiser should calm the redness and the pain of razor bumps. After shaving, pat your legs dry with a soft towel and apply a moisturiser. Ensure that the moisturiser is alcohol-free and contains ingredients like shea butter and glycerine to smooth and hydrate the skin on your legs.

Cool compress
 

Cool compress

Applying a cool compress to razor bumps will instantly soothe your skin and reduce redness and pain. Soak a washcloth with cold water and place it on your legs for a few minutes. Repeat this a few times until your skin feels calmer and the redness is less visible.

Aloe vera gel
 

Aloe vera gel

This home remedy works for most skin problems, right from burns and bumps to itching caused by dry skin. Apply the fresh gel extracted from a stem of aloe vera to the affected areas and let sit for some time. After 15-20 minutes rinse with cold water, this should make the skin on your legs feel hydrated and lessen the irritation caused by shaving.
