Exfoliation, and coconut oil fades dark spots. :) lemon juice works too. For natural non expensive remedies.
May I ask what your ethnicity is? then it will help me answer you.. also are you pointing on the little black dots??
Are they red? Try aloe vera gel. Also after a shave in the shower right when you get out apply non scented lotion
I'm Indian :)
And they're not red.. I think it's from shaving. It's like in my skin.. No bumps or anything
It's kinda crazy.
Those are your hair follicles..
It's not very easy to get rid of. I know this because I'm Hispanic, and most people who are non white get this, especially if you have a natural dark hair..
Do you shave a lot? You can try growing them out a bit.
And shave after?
The best way is to wax, but that can get expensive and hurt a bit.. so what you should try to do is soak your legs in warm to hot water. it can be shower or soak in the tub. after exfoliate with a body scrub with beads.. after that shave.. or you could try Nair...
I'm brown too and I have those on my legs as well. My doctor told me that I just have large pores on my legs. Nothing you can really do about it, but don't worry about it girl. No one will judge you so just wear what you want. :)
I have some too. And I'm white. But mine are just random dots everywhere, where hair would grow.
Just wash your legs a lot , and soon it will be done , it's not a big prob darling...
Try a different razor and when your shaving use baby oil it will help smooth everything down. I had the same thing and I tried this and it really helped now I don't have them anymore.
I had the same problem so I went to a skin doctor/ dermatologist and she subscribed a special lotion to help the hair follicles from getting irritated after shaving. so I suggest seeking a similar lotion.
I have these too.. esp where the hair grows.but mine are red as I'm white as a ghost. I think its from years off shaving perhaps mixed with chicken skin (KP).. I exfoliate and use lush dream cream everyday and it helps a bit but it could be better.. I have heard great stuff about the coconut oil so I'm going to add that to my routine! hope we find some cure because I also hate showing my legs!
I'm Italian sooo...I have dark hair too lol. Use shaving cream and always a fresh razor... And a good lotion. Also shave in warm water then when your done use cooler water to help close your pores.
