  • Stubble after shaving

    I have noticed this little thing after I shave my legs. There is a little patch or a line of stubble that is there. I have tried to shave it off in the shower, but no matter how much I shave, it doesn't go away. It's always in the same place, and it's on both legs. I've tried two different razors, and it is still there. It wasn't a problem at first, but it's ocuring each time, and is becoming annoying.

    Does anyone have any idea or suggestion? Thanks!

  • sounds unusual, no idea? usually you can get rid of patches by coming at it from a different angle. Never heard of such a persistent patch though. good luck

    • Not sure...is it visible or just something you feel? Have you tried exfoliating (using a loofah or exfoliating gloves) prior to shaving?

      I use a dab of conditioner (same as I use on my hair) for shaving. First I shave in the direction of the hair growth, then I go back over the opposite direction to get the remaining unruly hairs.

      • Beautiful, I'm not sure if you can see it or not, since it it usually on the back of my leg, but I can feel it. I haven't, but I have sensitive legs, so I don't know if there if anything for it. I normally don't use conditioner because it wears out my razor, but I have done it before. I can try doing it the opposite direction! Thanks!

        • I sometimes have a patch of stubble near my panty line I can't get rid of with a razor. Or possibly I could, but it hurts me to shave there more than once, and if I keep trying, I could get red bumps and bleeding. I would prefer to have that bit of stubble than be red and irritated near my bikini area! Anyways, try scrubbing there (exfoliating) to remove dead skin cells that might be hindering your shaving process. And since it's a little patch, you can pluck the hairs out, you know. Stings just a little, but it's manageable, if you don't want the hairs.
