Is it bad to shave everyday?

It seems to me if I shave everyday I get bumps on my legs and my panny line...But when I wait a couple days its not so bad.

  • I'm the same way. I shave every 2-3 days most of the time.

  • Its a shaving rash. If you're going to shave every day, you need to use a super moisturizing shaving cream AND lotion for "that area" afterwards. Shaving too often can also give you ingrown hairs, not comfortable trust me!

  • I have used antibiotic cream post shave that has helped prevent a rash

  • I can't stand it if i don't shave everyday- i don't think it's a bad thing, as long as you use some kind of moisturizer after you get out of the shower-

  • I shave every other while I am in the shower. Maybe your shaver is not the best one for your skin

  • it's due to rasher burn
    I use baby oil to shave with and a conditioner.. it helps cut back on that issue a LOT.

    as does compressing a warm to hot rag onto the area prior to shaving and after shaving. It will help soften the hair, reducing such burns.

  • if you want your hair to grow in really thick and dark then keep shaving daily. There will be a time that you can't and you will really hate it. And as you age as does your hair. And you keep shaving daily then you will keep shaving your skin off too. And it helps you keep fresh new looking skin, but, you will get really tired of the daily routine
