    I said shave, but I plan on going to the salon and letting then take care of it a few days before hand… i’ve always gone to get waxed throughout the summers, I spend a lot of time in my bathing suit and just dont’ want to worry about it. It really doesn’t hurt as bad as they say it does, just take an advil before hand.

    My tips for a good shave ‘down there’ are:

    Try not to shave too frequently; allow for a bit of regrowth in between (I usually do mine every 3-4 days; if I do it every other day, like my legs, I get a rash)

    Use a decent razor with a new-ish, sharp blade (blunt ones are a major no-no, as are disposable ones IMPO)

    Do it during a shower or bath if possible: this is because the heat open your pores, which gives you a smoother result

    Use shaving gel, rather than soap or foam; it’s more sensitive, and usually gives smoother results

    Avoid tight clothing after; I usually wear a dressing gown for a good 30 minutes.

     

    I also don’t get on with waxing; I cannot stand waiting for regrowth, and at about $50, frankly it wasn’t worth the 10 days it lasted… I also had ingrown hairs.

    You might like to try epilating though. It’s painful (I’d rate waxing at perhaps 3/10, and epilating at 6/10), but you can do it on very short hairs, so don’t need to wait ages for regrowth, and it lasts AGES; if I do it properly it lasts about 4 weeks.

    Have you heard of the company Slumber Parties?  My friend had a “party” & I bought the rash free shave cream stuff.  I LOVE IT!!!  It’s got a ridiculous name, something like Coochy Cream or something.  I also use a good razor, don’t shave too often, but don’t wait too long either.

    Go to a tanning bed…. I know they are SO bad for you apparently but….. once or twice a week wont kill you any faster then food, smoke and other things people consume. I’m not kidding I never get razor burn and I shave every other day there.

    @Snow2bunny:

    Umm, not really true.

    They MASSIVELY increase your risk of skin cancer; using one before the age of 35 increases your risk by 75%.

    And using one once or twice a week is excessive; even using one once every few months increases your risk considerably.

    Not to mention the other issues such as wrinkles and ageing skin.

    I have no issues with people using them; but I HATE it when people ‘recommend’ them to others.

    @DaneLady: Oooh I’m glad to hear of this. I’ve suffered with pretty bad razor burn for years. I’ll definitely look this stuff up! Thanks for the tip!

    You should try Tend Skin (it’s a toner, you can prob order online).  Also make sure you exfoliate the area a few times a week.  Good Luck!!
