Razor burn cream is a kind of skin care product that is used to help calm skin that has become irritated after being shaved. This kind of cream usually helps to reduce redness and bumps on the skin and can also help to treat and reduce the frequency of ingrown hairs. There are kinds of razor burn cream that are formulated for and marketed toward men. These sorts of creams are intended for use on the face after it has been shaved. There are other kinds of razor burn cream that are intended for use on other parts of the body such as the legs, the underarm area, and the bikini line.

In most cases, razor burn cream is intended for use immediately after shaving. There are some kinds of cream, however, that can be used on a regular basis for a period of time after shaving. If an area is only shaved a few times a week, these kinds of creams can still be applied on a daily basis. This is especially true of creams that are intended to help treat razor burn while also treating ingrown hairs. Some kinds of razor burn cream can be used on areas that are shaved as well as on areas that have been waxed, as they treat the kind of skin irritation that is common as a result of both shaving and waxing.

There are some kinds of shaving creams that are specifically formulated to help reduce razor burn. These are not technically razor burn creams, but are often used along with razor burn cream in order to treat the skin. These kinds of shaving creams are formulated in order to keep the razor from dragging unevenly across the skin in a way that can irritate the skin and even create small cuts on the skin. Sometimes these sorts of shaving creams are used along with razor burn cream that is applied after the area has been shaved and rinsed clean.

In addition to reducing the appearance of razor burn, razor burn cream is also usually formulated to help reduce the pain that can come along with razor burn. Many people who experience razor burn also experience a stinging sensation in the affected area. Razor burn cream usually includes one or more ingredients that help to reduce this sensation. Creams that are made with natural ingredients, for example, may include aloe.
