Staying free of razor bumps can be a difficult feat.

When your stubble is growing back, the hair can curl and grow back beneath the skin causing painful bumps. Using the right tools and quality products can help you avoid razor bumps.

2. Now that you’re ready to get started, bring out the priming oil.

Massage a nickel-sized dollop onto the area you're planning to shave. A proper priming oil should soften the hairs and relax the skin. Priming oil will also make it easier for your razor to glide across the face and neck while preventing tugging, nicks, and irritation.

4. Squeeze a nickel-sized amount of shaving cream onto the brush and apply to your face in a quick, circular motion.

Don't be afraid to use a little pressure here. This will help create a thick, rich, and foamy lather.

6. Be sure to shave with the grain — or, simply, in the direction your hair grows.

Everyone has a different grain, and chances are it's not straight down. Make sure to find yours in order to avoid bumps.

8. Once you’re done shaving, rinse your face with warm water.

Feel your skin to make sure the shave was close enough to your liking. If not, lather up again and give it another go. When you're done with the razor, rinse it under hot water and place aside to dry.

9. Time to restore: Rinse your face with cold water, pat dry, and rub restoring balm onto your freshly shaved skin.

Cold water closes your pores while the alcohol-free restoring balm moisturizes your skin and prevents bumps...all without the sting.
