Irritated skin help?

Sometimes after I shave, my legs get very irritated. Like, it gets red spots and starts to burn and itch. My skin is kinda sensitive so that doesn't help the problem either. Anyone have any tips to calm irritated skin? I was considering giving up shaving all together but waxing would irritate my skin even more because you have to pull so hard to get the hairs out. :(

Do you use shaving cream? If you don't, you should consider it. Even though it is not considered necesarry, you may want to look into it. There are many formulated just for dry skin, itchy skin, and sensitive skin, etc.
Also, if you are applying moisturizer right after shaving, it may be causing iritation. Especially if it is sented lotion. Skip moisturizer till the next morning/later that night
Hope that helps :)

I use Cetilfil Skin Cream. At walgreens, H-E-B, or Walmart in TX they have it. It has no parfumes. It hydrates all day!!! Its amazing. 10.00 Dollars but worth it. I use it as soon as I get out of the shower from shaving on my white legs. They get bumpy. If this does not work...you NEEd to see a dermatologist to make sure you dont have an allery to the metal or something. U may need to stick with the cream that removes it. Goodluck girl.

I don't use shaving cream. It would probably be a good idea to invest in some. Any brand recommendations? And yeah, I use lotion afterwards. I use Cetaphil. It's unscented but I'll stop if it could be the problem. Thanks for your help! :)

Skintimate is the best shaving cream brand around (in my opinion)...however if the fact that its scented irritates your skin you might need to look into an unscented one, like AOS. Good luck!

Thanks for the advice, HoneyBee! I'll give Skintimate a try. If that irritates me, I'll try AOS. I'm just glad I have a place to start with shaving cream lol. So thanks again for your help. :)

Thanks for the advice! I actually use Cetaphil already. It helps, but my legs still get itchy sometimes. But now that you mention about the metal, that could always be a possibility. I've never thought of that before. :/ First I guess I'll try shaving gels/creams to see if that solves the problem. If it still doesn't help the problem, I'll see a dermatologist and stop shaving. Thanks again for your help! :)
