Itchy after shaving! - November 18th 2010, 11:19 PM

I get itchy legs after shaving. It drives me mad. I know the obvious solution is not to scratch them but it huuuurts! Is there any sort of cream or body lotion I should use after shaving to stop the itching? Strangely it's most itchy a few days after i've shaved

I used to have the same problem, but I just make sure I moisturise my legs twice a day and I haven't had the problem since... Worth giving it a shot, any moisturiser does the job really.

I used to have that same dilemma but what Chaz mentioned just make sure you moisturise twice a day and def. don't scratch because that will just make it worse. Sorry I can't be more of a help. Good luck though

Have you tried just using a plain moisturiser? It should help to soothe your legs after.

you can buy just regular soothing moisturizer for sensitive skin or even try looking in to shaving cream for sensitive skin.

I have heard of a few things that might work. Facial moisturizer, shaving cream, aloe vera, lotion, and even hair conditioner. When my skin is itchy or anything like that, I usually use pure aloe vera gel because it never irritates my skin

Yeah as the others have said, use a moisturiser when you get out of the shower
Also, when shaving your legs try using a good shaving gel or foam which might help too.

Like Briana said, try using sensitive skin shaving creme. Thats what I use and I don't have irritating skin anymore.
