kmbumbee190618 :  there’s a product called Bikini Zone which is like an after shave that will prevent razor burn!

If you want a very close, smooth shave, you really need to ditch the disposable razors. Men and Women’s. Get yourself an old fashioned safety razor! Single blade, but super sharp. I always feel baby soft after! Plus, it makes shaving insanely cheaper than the store bought options. If you go this route, practice on your legs first! They’re not hard to use at all, but do take some additional concentration.

kmbumbee190618 :  I get the regular “take everything off” Brazilian, and wear cute Nike bathing suit boy shorts when I’m due for my next wax. I did laser under arm removal years ago, and it lasted only a year, then grew back. Maybe the lasers are better today—I had mine done about 15 years ago. Try Derma E tea tree cream for razor bumps, along with exfoliating using a loofah in the shower. I use it while the Brazilian is starting to grow out, and I don’t get bumps. Alpha hydroxy acids work amazing on bumps too. Tea tree is best right after the wax to calm the area.

Lazer isn’t as expensive as you think. A full Brazilian cost me $150 per session. The clinic gave me a buy 3 get one free deal. After 3 sessions I don’t even really need to go back for a 4th. Costs less than a year of waxing. Hurts like a B though.

I don’t know how helpful it will be for you but I figured I’d share my solution because it took me years to find it and it’s the only thing that doesn’t give me razor bumps or ingrown hair (even waxing does). 

I use a men’s foil razor (has to be good quality). It shaves super close to the skin and you could honestly think that I wax. Yes, you need to do it every couple of days but in your case you might want to give it a try while your skin recovers from those bumps and burns because waxing on a damaged skin won’t do any good.

I also want to mention that you shouldn’t expose your skin to the sun when doing laser, so if you’re planning on going to the beach I would wait for winter to start the procedures.

I guess I’m weird because I way prefer shaving to waxing. I sometimes get mild razor burn, but waxing (even with “sensitive wax”) leaves my sensitive skin red for at least a couple days, plus I find it super painful, pricey, and I hate that you then have to wait for it to grow out long enough to be waxed again, which means you’ll always have those awkward grow-out stages. Plus it rarely gets every hair, meaning there are weird little patches to clean up at home. I’ll take a razor any day over that. 

ETA: Oh and I forgot about the ingrowns I got last time I waxed! Ugh. Not for me.
