Default Razor burn, irritation... Females I need your help.

How can I help prevent this? I usually get razor burn by my groin area(the inner thighs) and right under my ***... is there anyway I can prevent this? My legs seem to be the only place that gets it too, not my arms, chest, stomach, back, just my upper legs (I havent shaved below my knees yet, that is for this summer).

Why don't you use some kind of hair remover like Neet or Nads or whatever. Then you don't have to worry about razor burn.

what kind of razor do you use? what kind of soap or shaving cream do you use?

I know it's a girl razor, but the venus razor is really good about keeping razor burn to a minimum. also, i use skintimate shave gel. i rarely get razor burn with that combo.

and, more importantly, WHY do you shave your upper legs and every other part of your body EXCEPT your lower legs??? that makes no sense to me. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I use the new Intuition Razor and it is fabulous. I have used men's aftershave in extreme situations...
But it burns... I dont know how they handle it on a regular basis. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Lol Rich, dude, I use a Mach-3 also, but I use Nivea's shaving gel. I suggest you use a shaving gel that's made for sensitive skin for shaving, or a gel with a moisturizer in it. For aftershave, use an aloe cream.
