What is the best way to treat cuts from shaving?

I can't get them to stop bleeding right away.


Answer by  Ginny (2251)

Either press with alcohol soaked cotton swab, put tiny piece of tissue over it, use a styptic pencil or petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on it. If none of this works, try dripping a type of eyedrop that constricts blood vessels on it.

The way I prefer is to treat them with aftershave balm. This will prevent the cuts from remaining open and they will heal much faster. Your face will also stay moisturized and it will be less prone to cutting because the skin is more moist and supple. Put brief pressure on the cuts as well.

As an initial step, dab the cut with hydrogen peroxide in order to avoid infection from any possible germs that may have been on the blade. Next, apply pressure using a clean cloth.

Apply pressure to them as soon as you get them because the more pressure you apply the less blood will come out. Cotton balls or toilet paper work well.
