The best treatment I found is a product called “The Bumpban”. I first tried it last year for bumps I get on my nape and chin/neck area. I did hesitate to order it at first, since I found it online and no one I knew had tried it. Boy, was I happy I did! On the second day I noticed a significant decrease in redness and swelling. After the first week you could hardly tell I ever had any razor bumps.
If you look at what causes razor bumps, you’ll see that this product does what’s needed – it dislodges the ingrown hair. If interested, the site I bought it on is http:// . Yes, it does look a bit abrasive, but I can honestly say u don’t feel it at all – kind of like rubbing your finger across your neck.
I appreciate this article. I think that she makes excellent, educated points. I am an educator and have read many books agreeing with them. Frankly, I am disappointed by the negative responses since we always have room to improve as parents. Saying good job creates children who do good things for approval, rather for their own gain and improvement. You are passing judgement on their work. Telling a child why something isn’t okay rather than saying no, helps children understand why the behavior needs to be stopped and prevents it from happening again. Understanding these points doesn’t weaken children, it strengthens them and helps them become independent thinkers and well-behaved children. There is nothing wrong with becoming a more informed parent.
Before coming to Eindhoven, I studied metal craftsmanship at Ecole Boulle. This school teaches students the traditional French craft heritage. There, I learned to have a good vision in 3D, precise technical skills and an eye for quality. Some aspects of this education have remained strongly in my mind: as we were forging our own tools with a fire torch and a hammer, I designed my own tools -all laser cut in steel- to construct the ‘Regen’ garments and accessories. I also love all the little technical tricks that make crafts and techniques being so smart. And to conclude, I really enjoy the craftsman routine: spending time in an atelier, being physically active and focused, trying out different tools, making a mess, and having the greatest satisfactory feeling when all the products are finally done and the atelier is clean again.
What fascinates you about designing materials?
First of all I would say that I am a materialist and therefore, I like to touch and feel the matter. I like the weight, the texture and the smell of things. I feel connected to the materials because my senses can relate to them. I like the smell of Argon when I weld, the smell of sheep when I work with wool, the smell of latex when I work on ‘Regen’. All these details give an atmosphere to my days. Besides this, I am seeking unexpected outcomes from common materials. I enjoy playing with their limits, or combine them to extract possibilities they haven’t given yet. When I manage to get a surprising effect, then I feel that I have achieved my goal.
