Using a dull razor
Razors are often undermined for their potential to cause harm to the skin. Improper removal of dead skin cells and removed hair allows germs to flourish, and using a bunt razor can be especially detrimental to your skin. Blunt razors can pull rather than cut hair, and this leaves microtears in the skin that are deceptively painful, and an open door for bacteria. Investing in a new razor or changing blades, and ensuring the blades are properly cleaned and dried is an easy way to counteract this issue.
