Tired of getting bumps after you shave or wax? You need to know how this happens!
A bump is born when a hair is trapped inside the skin, or grows back into the skin, and your body interprets it as foreign body and reacts with redness, swelling and pain (like when you get a splinter). This results in the appearance of "bumps" in the skin.
These razor bumps are called PseudoFolliculitis Barbae or PFB when they happen in the beard area, and bikini bumps or pubic bumps if in that zone. These problems are common after shaving, hence the name "razor" bumps, but are also common after tweezing, using epilators and waxing, and less frequently, after electrolysis and laser hair removal.
They are specially common when the hair is thick and curly. Areas with tight clothing, specially if the fabric is non-breathable, are specially vulnerable.
BUMP & BLEMISH® helps you prevent and quickly resolve existing razor bumps. Apply BUMP & BLEMISH® immediately after any hair removal procedure, and daily afterwards, to maintain the appearance of smooth, clear skin.
BUMP & BLEMISH® is widely used by dermatologists.
This is an excerpt from an interview published in June, 2011 by Dermatology Times, with Dr Charles E. Crutchfield III*.
Dr Crutchfield is a prominent dermatologist practicing in Eagan, Minnesota, head of Crutchfield Dermatology and Associate Professor of Dermatology of Minnesota Medical School.

Dr Crutchfield, who has no financial ties with the company, says he tried it and has used it on several patients in the past few months with good results. "It contains an anti-inflammatory, exfoliant and ingredients that fade away the dark spots. That is another problem with patients of color- they often heal with dark spots that are as bothersome as the razor bumps. This product helps rid of that post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation"Published in: Dermatology Times, June 2011 Vol.32, No 6

Persistent razor bumps or ingrown hairs lead to over-stimulation of the melanocytes (dark pigment producing cells) resulting in dark spots. BUMP & BLEMISH® is the only product in the market that helps with the bumps AND brightens the skin, evening out the skin tone. Three patented, naturally derived active ingredients: Chromabright®, a new lipo-soluble skin brightener that readily penetrates the skin and that is used in the most expensive skin care products; SabiWhite®, a natural ingredient derived from the spice curcumin (16 times more active than Hydroquinone) and OxyResvenox®, a derivative of the natural antioxidant resveratrol (32 times as potent as Kojic Acid) are the main ingredients that provide this action. Hydroquinone free.
Use on men's beards, back, chest and on women's bikini area, underarms and legs. To prevent the appearance of razor bumps, ingrown hairs, razor burn, use once daily, immediately after hair removal. To address existing problems, use twice daily until skin clears. Spot treat more frequently on recalcitrant areas. The bumps will become less noticeable and less painful very quickly (for some, within 24 hours). The brightening of the dark spots and areas takes place slowly, over a period of several weeks.
Unlike our competitors', our product does not sting upon application. This really helps when applying it to recently shaved, waxed or treated skin. It is also non-greasy and non drying. Leaves the skin moisturized.
Contains a small amount of Lavender Essential Oil and a hint of Grapefruit Essential Oil, which gives the product a subtle natural fragrance suitable for both MEN and WOMEN. Lavender oil is recognized as having a skin soothing effect as well as in aromatherapy for its mood calming action.
BUMP & BLEMISH® is available in the NEW 3 Oz (90 ml) bottle with large roll-on applicator, 4 Oz (120 ml) with disc-top dispensing caps and 0.4 Oz (12 ml) roll-on. All the sizes except the 4 Oz are OK for airline travel.
A little goes a long way! This product will SAVE you money when you compare with others.
Using the face or bikini areas as an example, the 3 Oz bottle provides 6-8 months of twice daily treatments; the 4 Oz bottle 8-12 months.
