Soothe razor burn with crushed ice cubes, a paste of aspirin and water, an aftershave balm or witch hazel treatment. Those suffering from razor burn must wait a few days before shaving again, to avoid further irritating the skin as it heals.
Many quick remedies can lessen the pain of a razor burn, in addition to rubbing ice cubes on the area in thirty-second intervals. Mix together a thick paste, made from crushed Bayer aspirin and a few drops of water, and apply it directly to the razor-burned skin to relieve pain and irritation. Use a moisturizing aftershave balm to refresh the dry skin. Witch hazel is an astringent, which helps soothe minor irritations and heal razor nicks and cuts as well.
