I don't know if I just have sensitive skin or what but when I shave, the skin gets irritated and red. its embarrassing when I'm in the middle of the moment and when I undress just to see redness and irritation everywhere. I would wax but its wayy too much for me to afford. any advice? are there creams to prevent this or something?

I'm probably not the most helpful person about this but I'll go ahead and answer anyway... If you shave too often, you get those red bumps. I only shave for important days like when I'm going to see my boyfriend. If I do it too much, my legs get all red. According to the internet, it's basically your skin getting infected with bacteria as a by-product of shaving, rubbing, etc. You can probably find a new solution that way. Nair made my skin really dry and red. Waxing can make me red too. I wax my armpits, because the hair grows back really fine, and I don't get the stubble, and then I just shave a little bit every once in a while. I used to have regular deodorant and I couldn't put it on for a day or so. Now I have all-natural deodorant, and I can put it on like the morning after and it doesn't sting. As far as wax goes, I use the Sally Hansen stuff I think from WalMart. But you can also make your own sugar wax at home out of brown sugar and lemon juice, basically... I haven't tried it. Kinda scary but also kinda cheap. I almost did during winter break lol. Gotta work up the nerve.0
