How Pit Liquor Stops Razor Burn
Posted on October 17 2020
Razor burn is the worst. It makes you feel uncomfortable, and often comes with an unsightly rash. It seems like one of those terrible but inevitable parts of shaving. But we're here to tell you it doesn't have to be.
Men have been making use of razor burn solutions for decades, using after-shave balms that are mostly alcohol, a known bacteria-killer. But women? We are way behind the curve. Pit Liquor aims to change that.
How exactly does razor burn happen? Glad you asked.
You shave your face, pits, legs, or, you know, other areas. While you're just there to shave, your razor indiscriminately opens hair follicles in addition to getting rid of those pesky hairs. The razor itself brings bacteria into those now-open follicles, injecting bacteria into any open area because your razor has old hair, skin cells, and general bathroom germs trapped within its blades. The bacteria goes all the way into the base of the hair follicle because the hair protecting this is now gone. Then the bacteria has a big ole party reproducing until your armpits become one giant rash.
So sure, spraying alcohol on your pits post-shave might sting, but it also kills off all that bacteria trying to leach into your pores. It means no razor burn, and we think that's worth celebrating.
A few tips:
Really feeling the burn? Try applying your Pit Liquor 5-10 minutes after your shower instead of right away. You'll still reap the rewards but lessen your sting.
Don't want to get too burned? Be sure to absolutely, positively, never spray down there. Trust us. It's a choice you don't want to make.
Razor burn still hitting a day later? Try reapplying 12-24 hours after you shave for a second time to keep your pits fresh and burn free.
