    Use an exfoliating thing, like a loofah sponge or those gloves you get at body shop. Also, apply Tend Skin.

    Aloe Vera, also consider other hair removal devices. Dipilitories have come a long way. Just test your skin first. Apply the dipilitory to.......say your knee. Wait 4 hrs. If there is no inflamation it is safe to use, gingerly on more sensitive areas.

    Shaving encourages hair growth. Depilitories depress hair growth.

    After shaving a run cold water on the area before getting out of the shower. It closes up the now sensitive pores before you expose them to the open air and possible bacteria.

    get the hair removed by laser or dont remove it at all, put alcohol on the shaved area as soon as you have shaved, or use antibiotic ointment, before they form.
