Q. My legs end up splotchy and gross every time I shave. Are there any products I can use to stop the irritation?
"Redness around the hair follicles usually means inflammation," says Dr. Brandt. "Keep skin smooth and clear by using an antibacterial lotion containing benzoyl peroxide immediately after shaving." Proactiv Repairing Treatment, $29, is a good one. Also, change your razor frequently, and try a soothing moisturizer with aloe or calendula once or twice weekly.
