What happens when skin is shaved?
Simply put, shaving is a form of mechanical exfoliation. Shaving triggers a high level of visible irritation and can serve as a form of over-exfoliation, as well as lead to a compromised lipid barrier. When the skin’s lipid barrier iscompromised, there is an increase in moisture loss, which leads to dry, scaly, cracked skin, and a sensitized skin condition.
Further dehydration can occur in the lower layers of the epidermis when the skin’s lipid barrier is compromised. A dehydrated skin leads to inefficiencies in the physiology of the skin, in particular, enzymes responsible for normal desquamation. Skin dryness can increase skin’s susceptibility to a various number of shaving concerns, including Pseudofolliculitis barbae (ingrown hairs and razor bumps), razor burn and sensitivity.
Continued irritation or assault causing. In addition to all of the symptoms that a sensitive or sensitized skin may experience, the sufferer will also see thesigns of premature aging on the skin.
