Cut during shaving - what to do?
You cut yourself shaving and wondering if you need to go to the nearest ER right away? I can calm you down: Usually the cuts are so superficial that you can stop the bleeding yourself. But how do you do that best?
The Alum Block
If the alum block doesn't tell you anything yet, you should definitely try it, because it works wonders! Alum, better known in technical jargon as aluminium potassium sulphate, has been around for a long time and has a firming effect on proteins, thus quickly stopping bleeding. If you are thinking about trying alum, I can recommend either the classic alum stone or the alum pencil. Because of its practical size, the styptic pencil fits in your trouser pocket or toiletry bag and can therefore accompany you on any journey.

I would only recommend using an after-shave lotion after you have cut yourself if your skin is not sensitive to alcohol. When choosing aftershave, make sure it contains allantoin. This promotes cell regeneration, soothes the skin and accelerates wound healing. Alcohol reduces bleeding and has a disinfecting effect.
