Baking soda works to cleanse the skin and to keep skin smooth so it can be a natural fix for those suffering from razor bumps. Try taking 1 tablespoon of the baking soda and mixing it with 1 cup of water. From here, apply the mixture on to the razor bumps with a cotton swab or cotton ball.

Aloe vera is known for its ability to soothe skin, such as sunburns, and can be gently massaged onto the skin to help with the burning and painful itching sensations that often accompany razor bumps.

Honey is an excellent choice for razor bumps because it has antibacterial properties, which means that infections will be kept away from the red painful bumps. Try rubbing the honey onto razor bumps and surrounding skin.

Ginger is helpful for razor bumps because it is an anti-inflammatory agent, which means that it can help to get rid of the inflammation that razor bumps bring. It can also help to soften the skin, which will make the bump less noticeable.
