hi i grow thick hair on my legs and upper legs. I get them waxed and when they grow back, i tend to get a few ingrown hairs here and there. i pop them out but then they leave these ugly red marks on my leg that just dont seem to go away. What can i do? Thanks!

prevent the ingrown hairs by exfoliating your legs regularly with a scrubby soap, loofah, or something the like.
as for the dark marks, you just have to let those heal. try not to pick at them or pop them in the future. if ingrown hairs get to be a real problem, you might need to have them lanced by a professional using a very sterile needle (dirty needles will infect and leave more marks).
