How to Stop Bleeding From a Shaving Nick

7 Tips to Stop Bloody Shaving Problems

We've all done it. It's the painful moment when the razor sweeps across the skin in the most awkward of ways, causing an unbelievable amount of bleeding. While most of us are careful to prevent major cuts from happening, sometimes the nicks can get the best of us. There are far better methods than the classic toilet paper scrap. Check out seven surprising ways to sop bleeding from razor nicks, when you keep reading.

1. Use Eye Drops: Apply eye drops like Visine ($8) to the nick, which will help constrict the blood vessels.

2. Dab on Witch Hazel: Using a Q-tip or a cotton ball, apply witch hazel like Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel ($4) to the irritation. This astringent will help slow the bleeding.

3. Grab a Pencil: For a good old-fashioned remedy, consider purchasing a Clubman Styptic Pencil ($2), which contains aluminum sulfate. Aluminum is a hemostat, which is an agent that helps stop bleeding.

4. Wax on: Break out the ChapStick ($4), which will help clot the blood and act as a temporary sealant.

5. Use a Tea Bag: Apply a cooled-off tea bag to the cut. The tannic acid in the tea helps put a halt to the bleeding.

6. Get an Ice Cube: Just like witch hazel and eye drops, ice will also help constrict the blood vessels to help stop the bleeding. Bonus? Applying ice on the legs after shaving makes them smoother and less irritated.

7. Cayenne Pepper: And on an opposite note, try sprinkling some powdered cayenne pepper for a natural remedy. It sounds weird, but people swear by it.
