it burns because while using something sharp to your skin, it scrapes of layer by layers of skin. its very bad for your skin though. just make sure you moisturize daily :) Report Abuse
How come if u shave ur legs w/ no soap/water/shave'n cream, ur legs burn/itch after?
The blade drags across your skin, scraping the surface, making it irritated. Moisture, such as soap, water, and shaving cream, keeps the surface of your legs smooth to minimize that.
Its a simple matter of friction. When you shave using soap/water/ or whatever there is a thin layer of a lubricating substance between the razor blade and your skin. when you shave dry the blade is able to cut a very fine layer of skin off along with the hair. While the fine layer of skin isn't really noticeable, it is still a new layer of skin that was not ready to be on the outside the newly introduced environment irritates it, along with added heat from friction as the blade drags over it. These cause a stinging sensation known as Razor Burn. Another downfall to this is your razor blade will dull out 5 times as fast.
Soaps washes away your body's oil. That helps to prevent microscopic fungus from growing in the hair follicles and in your skin's pores after you shave.
Anti-fungal soaps ( like Selsun Blue dandruff soap) will help stop the itching condition.
';Washing with a selenium sulfide [SELSUN BLUE] based shampoo can also help kill P. ovale upon the skin. ';
Its called razor burn its from the blade of ur razor pulling at the hair as u shave and it creates small cuts that burn and itch
try waxing its seriously not as bad as its been portrayed and if you can do what i did LASER HAIR REMOVAL big help
because you shavd away your skin cells.
I imagine it would be the same on the legs of a woman as it would be on the face of a man......it's called razor burn.
after shaving you need something to moisturize the shaved part,.,.the itching part happens when your hair will eventually start to grow..
