  • if you take a bath with warm water or sit in the shower with the steam and heat for a while about 10 min it will open your pores up and make it a bit easier. And the first post is correct if your hair is still pretty short its going to irritate your skin even more and give you bumps and cut you...

    also try putting a thin layer of Vaseline on afterward for a while and then just rinse it off.

    i know its weird but it will keep moisture in.

  • happens to everyone lol. Try not to shave when the hair is still really short it irritates it more and makes more bumps.
