Make sure your legs are completly wet before shaving. Afterwards apply some lotion onto your legs.

If u have razor bumps you should either get a better razor or start waxing your legs i hope i helped :)

On a woman who shaves her legs? Razor bumps, which are ingrown hairs. Exfoliation helps.

razor bumps are caused from using dirty razors.

Sun bumps are the scab-like bumps that form on your hands, arms, legs, and someimes even the face.

I am a woman and the way i keep my legs smooth is by using pure silk shaving cream and Venus embrace razor. My legs stay smooth up to 4 days. Once you feel stubble, SHAVE! The Venus embrace razor is very 'loyal' For me, it never left razor bumps. Hope this helps.

Razor bumps are inflamed hair follicles, and the term used is folliculitis.

All you need to do is not to shave on dry skin. Always shave when you are in the shower or you have just come out the shower when your legs are wet.

Shave very carefully! Or use an electric razor.

you can't you have to use a razor

use a 3 or more blade razor with shaving cream! ♥

I use to have these. Don't shave as often. One every week or once every 2 weeks. Be sure to moisturize after you shave. make sure your razor head is sharp and new. Shave straight over the razor bumps.

They can if you overshave - for example if you were to shave and get razor bumps, then run the razor over the area again it could catch the tops of the razor bumps cutting them, thus causing the bleeding. It's very common when shaving your pubic region too as the coarse hair pushes the skin around the hair shaft up a little bit, so it's likely to get caught when shaving.

Bumps on legs can be caused by ingrown hairs. The best way to alleviate the bumps is by exfoliation. You can also use glycolic acid to help minimize the bumps and prevent new ones from forming.

its just part of the texturing. unless you have REALLY big bumps, in which case you have a glitch. Some people are prone to razor bumps more than others due to their hair type. Generally African American men suffer the most from razor bumps in general to the texture of their hair. Curly haired people suffer more from razor bumps due to the fact that once the hair starts to grow back, the angle that the hair grows from the skin causes the hair to curl or bend back toward the hair shaft causing ingrown hairs and razor bumps. The best way to avoid this is to use a fine scrub before and after shaves, and to keep the skin hydrated and clean. Target carrys a wonderful line called Everyman Jack that is ideal for razor bump prone skin. Some men use a T-Edger and get a close shave avoiding razors all together. Most black men wouldn't touch an electric razor.

To treat that type of thing I use lotion (any kind I like non-scented) normally that's just razor burn.

You betcha. But if you're careful, it can be beautiful.

razor burn is just a bunch of little red bumps on your skin!! Usually they will sting after you get it..

Vaginal bumps can happen if there is an STD present. It may also be due to an infection or razor burn.

When u shave it gives u red bumps I get them all the time in the winter, cuz my legs are dry

Most of the time if you have it handy shaving cream works the best and take your time. If you already have bumps and razor burns use a mosterizing cream (lotion) without perfems in it and the should disappear in a few days. Just be careful and take your time. :) Another way to stop getting razor burn is to not shave, I personally wax my legs using wax that comes from the grocery store. Waxing lasts longer and takes less time. To touch up after a while just shave using shaving cream. Hope that helps! :)

The fastest way to remove razor bumps is to allow the hair to grow out before shaving again. Also look for something containing salicylic acid, glycolic acid, witch hazel or aloe.

Bumps in your armpits may be from a variety of causes. It could be swollen lymph nodes. They may also be caused by razor burn from shaving.
