Why are there black dots after I shave?

 
When I shave my legs, you can still see the roots underneath, like little black dots on my legs. I want to have smooth-looking legs. How do I get rid of the dark spots?

Getting the best results from your shaving regimen can be a little, well, hairy.

According to Dr. Vivian Bucay, a dermatologist in San Antonio, TX, spotting “dots” on the legs after shaving is fairly common, “Shaving removes the top portion of the hair, but not the root,” she explains. To minimize the appearance of those “dots,” Dr. Bucay suggests exfoliating your legs with a body scrub to eliminate dead skin. Also, use a sharp razor (don’t hang on to those disposables too long!) and a good quality shaving gel like Skintimate. “With continued use, hair regrowth will be finer and not appear as dark,” she says.

Other options? Consider depilatories such as Nair, which dissolves just below the skin or even waxing, which pulls hair out at the root.
