Ladies, we all shave our legs. Unless we're lazy and just let it be for like a couple of days. But when you do, you might get this thing called razor bumps. And they're so annoying and ugly. Then you just put on pants and forget they are there.
Well that's not fair. You want to show off those pretty legs of yours. But the razor bumps act like they're in control. There is a way though, that you can keep them from coming back after a shower.
Step 1: Use Cold Water To Rinse
After you shave your legs, it is best to rinse them off using cold water. The cold water will actually tighten your skin. You will notice your legs don't burn after you use cold water, whereas, hot or warm water will cause them to burn. Most of you like cold showers so this won't be a problem.
Step 2: Pat Your Legs Dry
Okay, after you rinsed your legs off and get out of the shower, you need to pat your legs dry. This will go hand in hand with the next step.

The last step is easy. Just apply lotion. When you pat your legs dry and then add lotion, there is still a little water on your skin and it blends with the lotion on your skin. Oh, and a tip, don't use scented or else your skin will burn. Use non scented lotion.

When things start to go wrong, you may likely start to think negatively about it. You begin to question everything you do. It's okay to question things, but if it makes you want to give up, then it must stop.
When positive energy is incorporated into your goal, beautiful things can happen. It's that potent. It has the power to change your life.
But if you allow negative energy in, then it will destroy all your hopes and dreams. That will result in making matters worse than they already are. So here are some tips on how to keep that positive energy flowing inside you when things don't go the way you expected.
1. Write your dreams and goals down on paper. Somewhere you won't forget that they are there. When things take a turn for the worse, just take out that paper and focus really hard on your goals. Visualize them in your head coming true. Feel all that positive energy surrounding you and embrace it.
2. Drive! Go for a drive to the store or through the backroads of your town. Driving gives you a chance to clear your head. It gives you time to think about everything and come up with a solution through being positive. Go by yourself or take a friend who is always positive.
3. Go to the gym. When you find yourself getting frustrated and angry, then go work out. The gym is great for blowing off steam. If you're not one for gyms then go running. That's a great way to work out your frustration and get you thinking positive.
4. If you are a religious person, then pray. Prayer can be comforting to some. It's like having a friend by your side. A positive one at that.
5. Surround yourself with positive people in your life. Supporting friends and family members can have a great impact on your positive energy. They will encourage you to follow your dreams and accomplish your goals.
Being LGBTQ is hard in society, but we have come a long way for a lot of our rights, and acceptance has grown. But what about those that live in religious states? How do they handle being different in a place where that makes them feel like a threat.
Mississippi, Alabama and other southern states are the most religious in the U.S. This makes LGBTQ people at high risk for discrimination. Earlier this week a law was passed in Mississippi (HB 1523) to allow discrimination against LGBTQ people. With this law, religious people are allowed to refuse service, jobs, marriage licenses, and adoption to LGBTQ individuals.This is still worth fighting against.
You see, it won't be long until this law is passed in another state. Living in a place where you can't be yourself is devastating. Everyone deserves a chance to be who they truly are. Religion shouldn't have a place in saying so. Respecting other's beliefs is one thing but using it against another person is unmoral.
There are ways to fight things like this peacefully and with love. Embrace your differences and individuality. In the end, we win together.
