Most of the time I don't shave, so when I do I get a bit of a rash, especially on my shins and bikini line. I shave with baby oil and a clean new razor each time and apply after men's shave balm.

What other advice can you give me? I don't like looking like a plucked chicken on a shoot!

I find when I'm shaving (mainly the bikini line etc) that the hair has to be a certain length before I shave
otherwise I can get the shaving rash. For the legs however, I don't normally have a problem with a rash, more
dried skin after, so maybe a good moisturiser would help?

Also, instead of using a male aftershave balm, use something specifically made for women

Hope this is of some help!

Cheers, Phillipa. I couldn't find an after shave balm for girls. Is there one?

I personally wouldn't use baby oil to shave, I normally use a showergel or a hair conditioner (makes the hair all soft too hehe). I've hear coco butter lotion works well for shaving rash.

I would not suggest mens balm, try a small amount of germolene as soon as you have dried the area.

OK, I admit I am a man, but what razor are you using?! There is a big difference between the best 3 blade dispo razors with aloe strips made by Gillette and Wilkinson Sword and something cheap and nasty.

I personally swear by Erasmic Shaving Foam with Aloe Vera, having tried a lot of other rubbish. I have never tried using baby oil! Try not using it!

Good luck!

Try using Bio Oil (or the cheapy stuff, Rescue Oil), instead of baby oil. That seems to really stop it for me. Or use hair removal cream instead, which is admittedly a bit rubbish as because I have really dark hair I have to do it two or three times :/

Best advice I've seen for this is : use a product called "For Men",it comes in very small plastic bottles but lasts ages. It has tea tree or aloe vera in it and only ever seen it on sale in Wilkinsons for £1 a bottle. You only need a few drops but rub into area to be shaved (and it seems to be fine for sensitive areas) then shave with the hair growth first, rinsing the razor after every stroke, then apply more product and shave against the growth. Really does work
How hard can it be?
