Is Razor Burn Bad Karma?


I tried to take a pic, but luckily it didn't turn out, so you'll just have to trust me when I say I've got some wikked awful razor burn on my calves and just above my knees. YUCK.

It isn't as bad today, since the weather is cooler, but yesterday it was fierce. Ew.

I think the surprising warm weather this weekend combined with shaving too quickly did me in. Or bad karma for telling scarlet she was "too picky" this weekend.

I'm going on vacation tomorrow and these legs DON'T look or feel like vacationing gams.

I'm gonna try aloe tonight and see what happens.

The good news is that I won't be bare legged much over the next few days, since Ireland isn't known for warm weather. Still, you know...razor burn...gross!

Did you know that Muslim men and women are required by the Sunnah to shave their pubic hair and armpits? I didn't know that, until today.

Astringent also works - somewhat. (Not a miracle cure, but it lessened visible bumbs when I tried it one time.)

Happy travels!

astrigent sounds painful! however, if this crap doesn't clear up, I'll give it a whirl.
