Got a bump? We can fix it. Well, if it’s on your face, that is.

First, we should qualify what we mean by a bump. Not to be confused with a pimple, these small, red and sometimes, painful spots are the result of shaving and are in actuality, ingrown hairs. They occur when your facial hair gets trapped inside the follicle, curls over and re-enters your skin. And while they’re swollen, raised, irritated and irritating, getting rid of them doesn’t require you growing a beard.

Using a sharp, clean blade, shaving your facial hair in the same direction the hair is growing in and exfoliating your skin on a daily to weekly basis are certainly key steps to take to stay smooth. Sometimes however, you need a little extra help. Antibacterial, soothing and calming aftershave products like Jack Black, Bump Fix are replete with ingredients like salicylic, lactic and hyaluronic acids that will dissolve the dead skin cells and facial oils that trap hair and block pores; exfoliate, smooth and soften skin; and soothe and hydrate your face—all to bump-free perfection.

And all you have to do to reap the rewards is dab a little of the liquid on with a cotton pad before you apply your shave gel or moisturizer. Just make sure to wait 30 minutes after you’ve shaved to do so, otherwise the formulation might sting. But you can rest assured, should that happen the face saver’s healthy helping of organic chamomile, aloe and willowherb will calm your skin and reduce any redness almost immediately.

Jack Black, Bump Fix is available in 6 oz for $29, online at www.getjackblack.ca.
