Hello, If those are acne marks, follow the below points: Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off.

Why do legs itch after shaving?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Why do legs itch after shaving?

Itchy legs after shaving is a common dilemma for women. Painful scratching can put even the most rational woman into a fit of frustration and tears. Itchy legs after shaving can happen for a few reasons, one being dry skin. Sometimes, a rash may even appear after shaving. There are, however, many different ways and techniques to treat and prevent this irritating issue.

Causes

There are a few causes for itchy skin and rashes after shaving legs. These causes can be your own skin issues and some are caused directly from shaving.

Dry skin

If you already have dry skin, pressing any kind of object against your skin can cause irritation. This can include doing something as simple as drying off with a towel after showering.

Skin sensitivity

People with sensitive skin are bothered by any possible irritant. Rashes after shaving legs are a common problem for people with sensitive skin.

Dull razors

Using a dull razor can cause you to press too hard on your skin while shaving, causing legs to be itchy and possibly causing a rash. Dull razors simply do not work as you need them to. Pushing harder to try

And make them work better will only cause yourself discomfort and you will most likely still not get the close shave you are looking for.

Razor burn

Using a dull razor, shaving too close to the skin, and pressing a razor too hard to the skin will cause razor burn. This painful issue can also be caused by dry shaving and cold shaving.

Scratching

Itchy legs after shaving and rash after shaving legs will make you naturally want to scratch. Unfortunately, although this may soothe the flare-up at that present moment, scratching will only make legs itch worse.

Treatments

There are numerous methods of how to stop itching after shaving legs. There are many over-the-counter treatments, as well as natural treatments.

1

Over-the-counter treatments

Lotions, creams and sprays containing the following ingredients can help soothe itchy legs after shaving:



Camphor


Menthol


Phenol


Pramoxine


Diphenhydramine


Benzocaine (or any topical 'caine')



Anti-itch creams which contain 1% hydrocortisone cream can also be beneficial in soothing the itch; especially when there is a rash on legs after shaving.

Bag balm, originally created to soothe the teets on cows that are nursing or being milked, this product has long been the staple in many homes as a natural treatment for dry and irritated skin.

2

Natural treatments

Any of the following naturally found items can help with itchy legs after shaving, including itchy legs that have developed a rash. These natural soothers can be used in a lotion, cream, spray, or simply by themselves.



Aloe is a natural soother used for many skin irritations, including sunburn. Juice from aloe can be applied directly from the plant source.


Oatmeal is, by far, one of the best natural treatments for how to stop itching after shaving legs. Taking an oatmeal bath will help soothe any itch or rash, including hives from an allergic reaction. Simply use a knee high stocking, fill with oatmeal, and use as a body pouf within the bath waters. Oatmeal will not only soothe irritated skin but also intensely moisturize, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth.


Vitamin e oil is usually found in lotions (but can also be found in drops at your local health food or beauty facility). Vitamin e oil is a natural moisturizer and will soothe irritated and dry skin fairly quickly.


Lavender will not only soothe the skin but also the senses. Use in a bath to alleviate itch and pain, and also to de-stress. Soothe away pain and stress in a lavender bath.


Tea tree oil has long been used as a natural antiseptic. Used most often for skin issues such as acne, dandruff, and eczema, tea tree oil will balance skin and ease irritation.


Witch hazel is a natural astringent; balances and tones skin after using irritating products, including shaving products and soaps.


Prevention

There are many techniques in the prevention of itchy legs after shaving. These techniques are applied both before, during and after shaving.

1

Use warm (not hot) water to shave legs in. Hot water depletes moisture from the skin. Warm water will help soften hairs and softer hairs allow for a smoother shave.

2

Be sure to exfoliate before and after shaving.


Exfoliate before shaving to align hairs for a more even shave and to remove dead skin for a closer shave.


Exfoliate after shaving to unclog any products used for shaving. Exfoliating after shaving also helps prevent ingrown hairs.


Always use shaving creams or products when shaving in order to hydrate skin. Never use water alone. Although you can use soap, it is not recommended as it can dry skin out. If you like the feel of soap for shaving, try goat milk soap which actually neutralizes the ph in your skin. If you have sensitive skin, try sensitive shaving products that contain aloe. Leave shaving cream on your legs for approximately three minutes to further soften hairs.


Shave in the direction of your hair growth. If you shave hairs against the grain, irritation and bumps can occur.


Shave lightly with a sharp razor. Do not use dull razors! dull razors and added pressure while shaving will cause irritation and most likely a rash.


After shaving and exfoliation, rinse legs with cool water. This will allow pores to close, preventing any outside irritants from entering your skin. After rinsing with cold water, pat legs dry. Do not rub. Rubbing opens pores and allows irritants in; and also strips away layers of new skin.


Pat legs with witch hazel to tone and neutralizes before using a lotion or cream. Use moisturizers that contain no perfumes, dyes or alcohol as these can dry out and further irritate skin. Try bag balm or a specialty after shave cream.

Flaunting a fair and flawless complexion is everyone's dream. There are many readymade fairness creams that can lighten your complexion instantly. However, if you want healthy, fair and glowing skin, then you need to work hard and have patience follow the ctm (cleansing, toning and moisturizing) routine daily? exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. This will help to remove the dead cells and open pores, thus lightening your skin tone always use sunscreen 20 minutes before stepping out from home. A good sunscreen with spf 40 will help to prevent tan in the indian climate drink adequate amount of water to keep your body and skin hydrated. A good sleep at night is also very important for healthy and glowing skin. Indulge in home remedies like face packs and scrub for natural fairness fruit pack: fruits can work wonders for your skin and also provide you with naturally glowing skin. Prepare a fruit pack by combining the pulp of an avocado, papaya and cucumber. Then add 2 teaspoons of cream or malai. Mix well to form a paste and apply all over the face. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water. People with oily or combination skin can avoid adding cream, they can add multani mitti instead into the pack papaya: papaya fruit contains an enzyme called papain that helps to exfoliate the skin, and this makes way for new skin cells to emerge. Papaya also contains vitamin c. Choose a green papaya to make your face mask, papain is most concentrated in a green papaya. To make a papaya mask peel and slice the papaya put it in a blender to make a smooth paste apply it on your skin and leave it for 20 minutes rinse it away with warm water. Any queries inform me.

With age, your skin loses its firmness and elasticity slowly leaving open pores which look very upsetting especially upfront. It's very important not to use any form of products available in the market for this on your face. Instead what you can do is use an oatmeal scrub which you can prepare at home using some oat flakes n honey. This vil help reduce the pores and moisturise your skin. Do this twice daily and a month later you can top up this method with some medication which vil bring significant changes. Your next problem namely dark spots can be due to various causes. something that vil help you is a broad spectrum sunscreen with spf 30 to be used thrice a day. This vil definitely lighten your spots and protect you from new ones. You vil need medications for a complete response.
