How do you get nice legs!

Not like movie star legs, but ones that don't get little red spots. I try and shave every other day or so, but I always get them on my upper legs. I have used just about every razer and crams but still the same results. Any suggestions?

  • My husband actually likes that about my legs. They are very smooth and soft. Make sure you have a good razor. I also use baby oil. Just a few squirts in the bath water. Make sure and put lotion on after every bath also.

  • Do you exfoliate in the shower? Like use a loofah or anything? I have noticed that if I dont use my loofah i get icky red bumps but as long as I exfoliate my legs on (well whole body) a regular basis my skin stays nice and smooth, also using a good thick lotion i prefer the bath and body works body creams.

  • Soak in the tub for a while before you shave. The hair softens up a lot that way. Try using your conditioner (hair conditioner) on your legs before you shave. I do that instead of shaving cream, it helps the razor glide better. Just be careful not to slip and cut yourself.

  • I use conditioner to shave too momofjandm! And I do a sugar scrub every week or so to slough off dead skin :) No red bumbs here!

  • Check for food allergies. I've got a wheat sensitivity and get something called DH(dermatitis herpetiformis) when I eat things like pizza crust or bread. When I cut my wheat and gluten consumption the bumps (combination of mini hives, blisters and what looks like ingrowns, but are not) go away like magic.
