  • Do not press down so hard on your shaver. It works for me.

  • Deodorant...the white kind, not the clear gels. Swipe it over the area when you get out of the shower. It'll help with razor burn and shaving bumps.

  • Deodorant is just going to make it hurt more, I wouldn't use it. Put A&D works fast and it doesn't irritate or hurt your skin to put it on. Just use a dime sized amount.

  • There is a cream called "coochie cream" that works very well

  • I have super sensitive skin and cannot prevent the razor burn. No matter what I did it would be so painful I wouldnt try to "tame the bush". Then I found the best product in the world lol. I use a hair remover cream (doesnt matter which kind) and then wash it really well with water (NO soap that irritates it more). Then I apply this awsome product called Perfect Finish Neutralizing After Wash by Epil Stop. Its amazing it works with any type of chemical hair remover and it basically just neutralizes the chemicals. When you squirt it outs its this yellow color and it turns pink when it contacts with the chemicals. I scrub around a bunch and it slowly turns white as it works. I usually apply another coat after rinsing until it stops turning pink. Wash again with water and its amazing. No irritation bumps or redness. I forget how expensie it is but it lasts awhile.

  • Have the hairs lasered away forever. Seriously. I could not shave even once a year without regretting it in a few hours. And then the ingrowns would bother me for weeks! I have not had to shave in 5 years!
