how am i suppose to get rid of this really bad itching, and somethimes burning o!
Question: i have used multiple shaving creams and i have no idea what im suppose to do to stop the irritation.
ok im a bloke.. but can only shave twice a week because i have sensitive skin.i use king of shaves jel, the pale blue one for sensitive skin, has tea tree oil, aloe vera, and vit E in it, use plenty of water and it gets very slimy, the blade glides through it giving a clean shave with no chaffing of the skin. rinse well after shaving and PAT dry dont rub...worth a try.
You might be allergic to the product/s you are using - why not check with an allergist to make certain that it isn't because you have an allergy to these products before you continue to use them?
stop using shavin cream's
& try a razor with aloe strips.
use hair condtioner as a shave lube, or dove soap. It is very gentle. Use a Sharp double bladded raisor. Or maybe even use a tripple bladded raisor. Change them out often!
It's either an allergy to something you are using or an irritation from something. You will have to keep trying different things and moisturizing your legs after shaving.
Try using the intution, it has a lotion around the blade so you don't have to use shaving cream. Afterwards put on lotion to help with dry skin. Sounds like you have sensitive skin.
After shaving, rub lotion that contains aloe vera to soothe your skin and moisturize it. Make sure when you shave, don't apply too much pressure, that scrapes off the top layer of skin and causes that irritation.
It may be what you apply AFTERWARDS . or that you apply whatever products you use too soon afterwards.
Course, it could be the shaving cream. it could also be because you shave in the 'wrong' direction - if you mean your face, a man could probably tell you the correct direction to get the least amount of itching.
You may be experiencing one of four things:
(1) An allergic reaction toward shaving cream. Make sure you are using a shaving cream without menthol in it (lots of men's shaving creams have methol), and make sure it is a shaving cream intended for female use. Try looking for a shaving cream made specifically for sensitive skin (Gillette has a nice one with baby oil mixed into it to soothe legs). If you are still irritated with even the most sensitive shaving creams, the just use some moisturizing body wash like Oil of Olay Deep Moisture or Dove Intense Moisture body washes. Just apply the body wash without a loofah and shave with it on your legs.
(2) You may be shaving too hard and too frequently. Every time you shave your legs you are, essentially, grinding a piece of metal against your bare skin. Razors, no matter what you do, accumulate microscopic jagged edges after a lot of use, so it is a good idea to switch your blades after every 2-3 weeks of continuous use. Unless you absolutely must shave everyday, I recommend shaving once every 2-3 days instead. Less shaving means less irritation on your legs. Also, when shaving, make sure not to shave too hard. Glide the razor over your skin.
(3) Irritation is bound to occur if you do what I call "dry shaving." Dry shaving is when you don't soak your legs in warm water before shaving; you essentially just apply shaving cream to dry legs. This is going to make you itch like never before and should be avoided. Thus, I like to shave either while taking a bath or a shower (if you can balance alright). Make sure the heat from the water hits your legs for a few minutes before you apply shaving cream. Warm water temporarily softens your skin and your hair follicles making the MUCH easier to shave off.
(4) Some women, but not all women, need to moisturize their legs after they shave. You may be one of these women. After you get done soaking you legs in warm water, shaving with a sensitive skin shaving cream or body wash, and using a reasonably fresh razor, pat dry your legs when you get out of the shower or bath. Rubbing them with a towel will just cause more irritation, so it is important to PAT DRY. The apply a very light, hypoallergenic lotion to your legs. Just use what you know is right for your body (i.e. what you've been using for the rest of your body).

TRY THIS TRICK. SHAVE IN THE TUB. PUT A CUP OF BAKING SODA INTO YOUR BATH.. IT IS GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN.. IT WILL MAKE YOUR SKIN SO SOFT.. MY SISTER HAD VERY SENSITIVE SKIN AND THIS WAS THE ONLY THING THAT WORKED.
IT DOESN'T HAVE ANY CHEMICALS OR ANY FRAGRANCE THAT CAN IRRITATE YOUR FEMININE STUFF. i/e (THROW OFF YOUR P/H BALANCE-- OR GIVE YOU AN INFECTION.)
TRY IT.. I BET YOU'LL LIKE IT.. :)
PLUS YOU DON'T HAVE TO KEEP BENDING OVER TO SHAVE.. IT IS WAY MORE COMFORTABLE. LET ME KNOW HOW IT WORKS FOR YOU?
i used to have the same problem. I use a mans razor. the gillette fusion power. first i use a body scrub with beads in it to help exfoliate my skin and then use hair conditioner or shaving cream for sensitive skin or with aloe in it to help with the dryness. It makes your legs feel silky smooth.
ennumi lotion from 4Life Research should take care of your itchong. Email me to help order.
shave using olive oil
SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED TO APPLY ALOE VERA ON YOUR LEGS AFTER SHAVING, IT USUALLY SOOTHES THE ITCH, IF THIS DON'T WORK TRY BATHING WITH SOME EPSON SALTS. YOU MAY HAVE TO SEEK HELP FROM A DERMATOLOGIST. (SKIN DOCTOR). GOOD LUCK.
Have you tried sensitive skin formulas? You may be allergic to the fragrances that are used in these products. Good luck!
i dont know
You are using too many products. Stop for a while until the irritation is gone. Then try shaving using warm soapy water and a razor, then moisturize with aloe.
Try lathering your legs with Dove soap for sensitive skin to shave. Leave the creams alone
ASK A DOCTOR
It just might not be what you are using to coat the legs when shaving. It could just be possible that you are allergic to the metal or plastic from the razor it's self. But do to the fact you don't look as if you shaved afterwords you really should see a dermatologist and get to the root of the problem.
