Stop a Shave Cut from Bleeding !

What’s worse than a rushed morning shave as a result of over-snoozing? Bloodshed, via razor. If Dad taught you to plug up shave nicks with bits of toilet paper, know there are better, faster home remedies for treating wounds and getting out the door.


Here are five preventive solutions:

  1. Deodorant:

    Most antiperspirants contain aluminum chloride that can, in addition to shrinking sweat glands, constrict blood vessels and clot a nick.

  2. Lip Balm

    Smearing on a little ChapStick or Vaseline works like a seal-plus it’ll keep bigger cuts from forming unsightly scabs.

  3. Ice Cubes

    Like swimming pools and your package, the cold shrinks blood vessels, enabling a clot to form fast.

  4. Mouthwash

    The alcohol in solutions like Listerine acts as an astringent, which halts blood flow by causing tissues to contract.

  5. Eye Drops:

    Red eye relievers like Visine work similarly on cuts: they slow down bleeding by constricting blood vessels.
