  • Not anymore. I actually shave with body lotion now. I wet my legs with hot water, slather a hypo-allergenic lotion all up and down one section of my leg, shave while rinsing the blade under hot water frequently, and then rinse thoroughly. After I pat my skin dry I'll apply a thin layer of the lotion again and I'm good to go! The trick is to use something hypoallergenic - no dyes or perfumes - or as few as possible.

  • I always do lotion afterward. When I can afford it I buy Intuition razors which has soap and moisturizers attached to the razor and that helps too

  • Lotion and hypoallergenic hair removal work good but have you ever tried waxing?? The hair will stay off for two weeks so your are not damaging your skin from products and frequent shaving. Also! When you wax regularly each time it takes longer for the hair to grow back sometimes even to the point that it dosent.

    Waxing is not pain free but most salons use a product called soothe that soothes the skin afterwards and takes the stinging away.

  • Lube them up enough and they won't itch. It's dry shaving that causes the itchieness.
