Coconut oil! It sounds weird, bit works wonders to smooth skin. You can either use it in place of shaving cream/gel, or apply it to the skin after shaving. You can get it at Walmart or health food stores.

I used to use Bikini Zone after shaving.  It worked pretty well.

Ooooh I need help in this topic, I’ve googled many times but come up short with any solutions. Hopefully some bees know best 🙂

Monistat makes a chafe relief gel for razor burn.  You can find it near their other products.  It works great!

I second the Bikini Zone suggestion (:

ETA: I also suggest Noxema sensitive skin MEN’S shaving cream. It’s extremely extremely foamy and kind of numbs your skin a bit so shaving is really easy.

Dunno if it’s something you’d be open to, but about three years ago I started getting waxed down there instead of shaving it. My skin is so much softer in that area now, and I don’t get those bumps I got when I was shaving. It also usually lasts me at least 3 weeks to a month.

ok I have a lot of experience with this-

I have crazy allergy-prone, sensitive skin AND I am italian (all you olive-skinned ladies know that means crazy coarse body hair AND means there’s a lot of it!) Here’s my best case scenarios, in order:

1) a GOOD brazilian wax.  Yes, it hurts like hell, but less than having 2 weeks of angry razor burn. Seriously.  Its like 15 mins of pain for 3 weeks of glory.  Exfoliate after but dont go crazy. I find leaving it alone is best. However, I’m poor so…

2) NAIR. I know this sounds like a horrible idea but nair actually works WAY better than shaving- put some tissue around the tender bits and slather it on there.  You’ll know basically immediately if you’ve hit a spot you shouldnt.  do NOT put anything on it after.  Its cheap, done at home, and doesn’t give me ANY ingrowns but yuou do have to clean up with a razor. Lastly…

3) Regular shaving.  I basically never do this on my bikini line because I get crazy ingrowns and horrible rash.  If I do, I use TendSkin to help (which I keep for my legs to help with razor burn and hives from itchy skin.)

 

Good luck!

@rachelmichelle:  I tried waxing, but it doesn’t seem worth it. You’re smooth for a few days, and then you have to wait weeks growing it out again. Maybe that was just me? Or because I only did it once?

+1 @quin24 I love coconut oil, it help a lot and I know exactly what I’m putting on my body 🙂

@Tangled:  My hair doesn’t even usually start growing back until 2 or so weeks later. When a hair follicle is removed, it shouldn’t be able to grow back in a few days later. What kind of wax did they use? It sounds like your hair was sort of just… ripped, instead of pulled out.

Tanning is the ONLY thing that works for me 100%. For whatever reason, it completely clears up my razor burn and ingrowns and makes my skin look fabulous.

But since there are obvious health risks that come with tanning, the other thing that I’ve tried that works (but not as well) is not shaving the area for a few weeks and gently loofah-ing in the shower to help bring ingrowns to the surface. Gently dab witch hazel on after shower to help reduce inflammation. Once razor bumps have gone away and ingrowns are no longer being little buried bastards, get a sharp razor and shave with the hair. Apply witch hazel after.
