Razor Bumps: Knock ‘em out faster with Bump Patrol

I take shaving seriously and as a guy with light skin and a moderately course beard, I’m only occasionally prone to razor bumps and burn, usually on my neck. They suck! Anyone who has had them knows they can sting and look “not awesome’. Razor bumps, also known as Pleudofolliculitis Barbae, predominantly affects African-American, Latino and Mediterranean men, whose
beards are typically course, curly and prone to ingrown hairs, In fact, according to research conducted by the U.S. Army, approximately 80 percent of all African-American men experience razor bumps. Some men actually think they’re allergic to razors or believe nothing can fix the problem. When I get razor bumps, I bring out the armed forces for a counter attack and by that I mean it’s time to bring out Bump Patrol. It’s loaded with soothing agents to reduce inflammation, antiseptics to reduce bacteria and prevent infection and emollients for a smooth appearance.

There aren’t enough hours in the day to tell you how much I love this product. Bump Patrol's anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and conditioning affects happen right after the first shave. The line is fully stocked and includes hydrating shave gels and three strengths of their aftershave razor bump treatment: Maximum Strength, Sensitive and Original.

If you're prone to razor bumps, here are a few smooth moves to prevent this situation:
1 Tweeze ingrown hairs and apply Bump Patrol directly to the sites.
2 Use a hydrating shave gel and a high-quality multi-blade razor on a moistened, warm face.
3 Shave in the same direction of the beard’s growth. Never go against the grain.
4 Complete each shave with an application of Bump Patrol aftershave wherever the razor touched.

I also use Bump Patrol on my back after a waxing to avoid any ingrown hairs. And ladies, I think this would work well after a leg shave, bikini wax or a Brazilian. Keep it smooth.

Bump Patrol is available at Walgreens, Walmart, Target and CVS.
