Advice on how to keep your cuts from bleeding


Dear HNM,

My name is Shelly, When I shave, my legs seem to get red and I also notice little cuts on my leg. I would like to know what I could put on my leg to prevent the cuts from bleeding.

Some ways to Prevent Bleeding

Dear Shelly,

As you can see in the above pictures, deodorant, mouthwash, and lipbalm are great ways to prevent bleeding from a cut. Deordorant is good to use because it contains aluminum chloride which can create a blood clot. Lipbalm is also good to use because it's waxy texture can help seal the skin and allow a blood clot to form. In my opinion I believe that mouthwash is the best to use because of the alcohol it contains.
