Shaving question..

Whenever I shave my legs, I always have these little lines. They almost look like little hairs, but lighter and they seem to be where the old hairs were before I shaved. How do I get rid of them?

Here's a picture of what I'm talking about:

Oh yeah, I just bought a Shick Quatro for Women razor. Before, I was using crappy disposibles my dad uses on his face.

    It's because your skin is light enough to see the hair through it. There's really nothing you can do about it. I have the same thing. I look polka-dotted after shaving. I'm seriously considering having laser hair removal. I've suffered long enough.

    One good thing is that laser is idea for those with very dark hair and very light skin. The more contrast, the better it works apparently.

    I'm the same way. I'm so pale, you can practically see right through me to the other side! :wink: That's one of the reasons I wax. Just a little momentary pain (no more so than razor burn or ingrown hairs, which I'm prone to and which I always got with shaving :roll: ), and then over a month of nice smooth legs and not messing around with a razor every day. If it really bugs you enough, you might want to try that.
