Dark marks on legs from cuts while shaving?

RimiRimi Posts: 2,001Registered Users Curl Neophyte
Does anybody know how to get rid of these annoying dark marks I get anytime I cut myself while shaving??

Unless I apply neosporin like three times a day for weeks, the cut will heal into an ugly, dark mark. Now I have marks on my shins and calves. Help?? Or is laser the only option? :evil5:

    They're scars. They'll fade by themselves over time. You could also try applying something that claims to get rid of scars, and there are even some EOs that supposedly fade scars.

    Try unrefined shea butter and vit. E oil for the marks.
    As for preventing future marks, you might want to consider getting an epilator.
    It's painful at the beginning especially if you've never waxed before, but it's very convenient and with the new technology epilators, it's much easier to get used to.
