You have a million and one thoughts racing through your head from the second your alarm goes off and your feet hit the floor. So it’s no surprise that once in a while you get a couple nicks while shaving your legs and calculating how much time you have left to get through your morning routine.
Don’t reach for the TP! There’s a quick and easy way to stop the bleeding that doesn’t require you remembering to remove those pesky pieces of paper before heading out the door. After all, your morning has enough madness in it.
Next time you see a nick, simply grab your Chapstick or jar of Vaseline. Use your finger to take out a tiny bit, and then swipe it over the cut area. The waxy texture creates a barrier that protects your cut and stops the bleeding, so you can go about your morning until it forms a clot on its own--with no chunks of toilet paper falling out of your pant leg.
And cut down on nicks altogether by keeping your razor sharp with this easy, inexpensive trick.
