How do you stop your legs from getting annoyingly itchy a couple of days after shaving?
I've tried the obvious (moisturiser, new blade, good shaving cream).
uh, shave again?collinsc

I can't imagine going too long. Leg stubble is BAD

Shave often.
Its trial-n-error, but go with the grain!! nmOwenMeany

Exfoliate the bejesus out of your legs. Every day in the shower, get yourself one of those loofa, faloofa... or whatever they are called. Soap it up and then just scrub the heck out of your legs. Then, after you have showered and dried off, put some lotion...something relatively unscented if your legs are really sensitive... apply lotion twice a day and you should be good to go. This will prevent most of your ingrowns as well.

Secret is the exfoliation... some people use bizarre things like scrubs with walnut shells in it, or stuff that feels real grainy like sand. Ive even heard one beauty expert suggest using plain sugar on legs... but I have never had much success with anything but old fashioned elbow grease. Trust me, get the loofa thing. Your college buds will give you some crap, but claim its your girlfriends or hide it.

Hope this helps...

So sayeth the funk
Are you breaking out?MisJG

If you are breaking out in red "shaving bumps" then your answer is Loofa, Loofa, Loofa!!

If you are itchy because the hair is regrowing, your answer is shave again!
