shaving

why is it that i cannot shave my thighs without getting horrible razor burn?? every single time i shave i get all red and bumps that look like pimples.. i've even tried an electric razor... nail doesn't work and with waxing you have to wait for hair to regrow each time... any suggestions?? i don't want to be hairy but this is disgusting as well!!

Re: shaving

I am having a similar problem, except mine is more on my shins...it's like I could shave over the area a thousand times and you can still see some dark hair waiting to grow back beneath the skin...it's not very sexy looking! lol...the only things I can suggest are to try another razor with a good moisture strip on it...don't know if you already have, I know you said you tried an electric razor, so I'm assuming you have tried tons of other ones already. Also, if you're not already, try a shaving cream that is made for sensitive skin...I used to use the skintimate in the light green can and my dh always took it to shave his face with...he actually preferred it to his "guy's" shaving cream because he said it didn't give him razor burn. I hope this helped a little
