They’re simple to use and dissolve hair right under the surface so regrowth is finer than with shaving.

  • 6: Underarm Solutions

    Underarm hair grows in different directions, so use a 5-bladed razor to shave from all three angles – up, down, and sideways – for the smoothest results.

    Finish by rinsing with cool water to close your pores.

    7: Fight Razor Burn

    Razor burn is caused by hair that is pushed

  • into the follicle, which becomes inflamed and then develops into an ingrown hair.
    Attack the problem before it starts.

    Use a shaving gel instead of cream to avoid clogging pores.

    Also, try to avoid wearing tight jeans or underwear, which can rub against the skin.

  • 8: Soothe Razor Burn

    When razor burn does occur, apply an aloe-Vera-based cortisone cream twice a day to soothe the area and get rid of the redness.

    10: Avoid In-Growns

    Ingrown hairs in the bikini area may be persistent and unresponsive to loofah or regular exfoliation. If this is the case,

  • buy a topical lotion or an astringent formulated to prevent ingrown hairs.

    If in-growns leave you with post-inflammatory hyperpigrnentation, a twice-daily application of skin-lightening cream on the affected spots fade them.

    11: Prevent Nicks

    Lube up your legs with a moisture-rich shave gel

  • to ensure that the razor glides easily over your skin (no nicks!). If you run out, reach for hair conditioner over regular soap, which causes dryness.

    12: Zap it off

    If you’re going to try laser hair removal, it’s not a good idea to start getting it right before summer since lasers make your skin

  • sensitive to the sun, putting you at risk for burns and pigmentation issues.

    13: Shaving the Bikini Line

    Make sure you soften the hair with warm water before you shave and use a moisture-rich shave gel after trimming hair down to about 1/4 of an inch for smooth removal.

  • 14: Keep it Sharp

    Change your blade at the first sign of dullness (usually after about 10 shaves). You should also invest in a 4- or 5-blade razor. These versions provide the smoothest results.

    15: Get Numb

    Scared of wax-induced pain? When worn thirty minutes before your appointment,

  • the Bare Ease Prep Kit (complete with latex panty and a tube of pain-relieving lidocaine cream), gently numbs your bikini area to make your Brazilian as ouch-free as possible
