whenever I shave my legs I get little red bumps and like I use shaving cream and exfoliate and make sure not to press too hard but they still happen.
i have tried waxing and that does the same thing and I find hair removal cream to be too time consuming.
anyone got any tips on how to prevent the bumps.
i basically really want to know how to get smooth legs.
thanks any help much appreciated!

You may have sensitive skin?
If I was you I know this sounds gross...don't do anyshaving/waxing for two weeks. Exfoliate only every three days, make sure you moisturize your legs, (body olive oil/coco butter). After this period try shaving again, make sure you get a shaving cream for sensitive legs this time. Don't use disposal razors invest in a good lady shaver. Make sure skin is clean, apply the shaving foam, when you shave begin with shaving from the lower leg towards the knee (you need to shave from the opposite side of the hair growth - so on the legs it would be upwards), Do not apply a lot of pressure, do small areas at a time in one line upwards each time and then rince your shaving blade to get rid of the hair already on there..use touch more shaving foam if needed avoid going over the same area twice, if you do notice a small hair just get rid of that not the whole area. Use luke warm water to wash your legs with and again dry and use a good moisturiser, try not to shave too frequently again that will irritate your skin.
Do not wax your own legs there is a technique to this and if you get it wrong it will show on your skin, your hairs will start growing in all weird directions and will cause ingrown hairs and the bumps - you can try waxing again by a professional, you will need at least three-four weeks worth of growth.1
