WHEN SHAVING HOW TO STOP A RAZOR CUT FROM BLEEDING HOW MANY WAYS ARE THERE TO STOP A SHAVING RAZOR NICK MORE THAN YOU THINK


Shaving with a razor blade. How hard can that be? You would think that after years of shaving your face, people would have it down. Actually, it is still common to cut yourself while shaving. I know I have been there. Try getting ready for work after shaving and that tiny razor cut just won't stop bleeding. You press on it but it just won't stop!










  How about getting some witch hazel or an ice cube or Chapstick?

According to the Derm Blog there are at least 5 ways to handle shaving cuts. Personally, I usually use a styptic pencil. " A styptic or hemostatic pencil is a short stick of medication, usually anhydrous aluminum sulfate (a type of alum) or titanium dioxide,(titanium don't they use that in airplanes?) which is used for staunching blood by causing blood vessels to contract at the site of the wound. Before safety razors were invented, it was an essential part of a shaving kit and was used to seal cuts caused by improper shaving".

  • Grab an ice cube. The cold causes the tiny blood vessels to constrict,slowing the blood and allowing a clot to form.
  • Use your Chapstick or apply a dab of Vaseline jelly: the waxy ointment help seals the tiny nick and provides a surface for a blood clot to form.
  • Soak a Q-tip in witch hazel and apply gently to the cut. Witch hazel is an astringent,which like the ice cube,constricts blood vessels,slowing the bleeding enough for a clot to form. Warning:this will sting a little.
  • Just hold pressure. As we say in medicine:“All bleeding stops eventually.” See 5 ways to stop shaving cuts from bleeding at
