Even more issues with leg-shaving

okay. im starting to like shaving, but what about these "bumps" I keep getting? Am I using the wrong razor? Is there some cream to prevent this?

It's fairly ugly and quite itchy.

It could be that your allergic to the cream that your using.

The razor could be the problem...sometimes if there old they don't work well and can mess up ur skin.I personally love the Venus razor. I know it's girly but it works really well.

Well, never shaved my legs before...but I'll try to be of some help. When I made a random google search on the subject of shaving bumps, it said that the bumps after shaving are most likely ingrown hair folicles and that some moisturizer would help.

Scrub, exfolliate.

The bumps are hairs too weak to pinch through the skin so they keep growing underneath. If you shave very close there is a good chance some hairs will sink under the skin. In particular is the razor pulls them, cuts them and releases them.

Get a good body scrub cream and a loofah, and get scratching to remove dead skin to help the hair grow through...

Shaving leg
- Use a wet razor + wet legs. Might as well shave in bath or shower.
- If your legs are sensitive, use soap.
- Do not use moisturizer or lotions after shaving! Maybe awhile(15-30minutes) after you shave or you will recieve quite a rash if you do have sensitive skin like myself.

And, I guess that is all to it.

what about this new "Shick Intuition" razor? it's like a deoderant stick, except it's shaving cream and moisturizer in a donut shape, and in the center of this donut is the razor. this any good?

I don't like shaving much myself, but second the idea of using shaving gel/soap. Also, use warm/hot water, and wait until you have been in the bath/shower for a while, to help soften up the hair. If you don't need a super close shave, try shaving in the direction of hair growth. If you rub your leg you will still feel slight prickles, but they're not noticeable to the eye. The very end of the hair is still sticking out of the skin, so you'll probably get fewer bumps. If the hair is long, I shave this way first, then against the direction of hair growth to get the silky smooth feeling.

Waxing, while more painful, I find is so much better for me in the long run (when I have access to it). Don't have to shave every other day/once a week, and hardly any bumps.

Something else that helps: before shaving, I trim all I can with a beard/sideburns trimmer at the shortest setting. That way there is less hair to clog the razor.
