5 SIMPLE ways to treat shaving nicks and cuts at home

by Staff writer

It doesn't matter how much experience you have, or how expensive or high-grade the razor you use is, cuts from shaving are a near inevitability.

Bleeding shaving nicks and cuts are one thing no adult prays to experience. But the experience won't be so bad if you know exactly what to do.

Though there are now products specially made to stop bleeding from shaving cuts, you still don't need to fret if you don't have them because these FIVE home remedies have been found to work just fine:

1. Deodorant

Most antiperspirants and body sprays contain alcohol and aluminum chloride that can, in addition to shrinking sweat glands, constrict blood vessels and help cuts to clot.

2. Lip Balm or Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline)

Applying a small amount of lip balm or Vaseline to your nick stops bleeding from nicks fast.

3. Ice Cubes

Cold shrinks blood vessels, enabling a clot to form fast.

4. Mouthwash

The alcohol in solutions like Listerine acts as an astringent, which halts blood flow by causing tissues to contract.

5. Eye Drops

Eye drops have been found to slow down bleeding by constricting blood vessels.
