razor bumps?

how do you keep from getting razor bumps (or get rid of them)? I shave it all and I always end up with little red bumps on my bikini line.

  • I use "Bikini Zone" gel right after I shave.

  • Hi,, I have terrible razor bumps,, they are caused by the hair trying to poke back up,, I used Bikini Zone,, but honestly have found that Nair is the best bet for me,, the next day I retreat with Bikini Zone to keep from getting ingrown hairs!

  • try shaving in the shower with hair conditioner instead of shave gel/foam which is made of soap and will dry out your skin.... then when your get out of the shower and are dry immediately use lotion where you shaved. if that doesnt work try putting on the lotion before you even dry off- crazy but it works i live in ohio and the winters are brutal cold and dry and i have sensitive skin. also using an old razor can cause bumps because you have to shave more times to get all the hair off.

  • try using a loofah sponge or a shower glove to exfoliate. If you use it every day after shaving it eliminates the ingrown hairs.

  • Try using TendSkin, it's similar to the product BikiniZone which was mentioned above, but I'm a TendSkin girl. It is seriously miraculous stuff. I bought mine at CVS or Duane Reade.

  • i heard you can avoid the bumps if you shave the way the hair is going and not against it.

    razor burn. but yeah try shaving with the hair. =)
