  • Shave regularly, use a good cream with aloe, and shave with the hair, instead of against it. GL!

  • If you can't get a wax, just make sure you keep the area mosturized. and try not to pass over one area more than once.

  • Pour alcohol in your hands and slightly wipe it all over that area for about 2 days you'll be fine that is what works for me you want to dry it out in that area faster.

  • Deodorant! Sounds weird, but everyone in my family does it, we swear by it!

  • use astringent or toner on the area after you shave...it burns like hell for a few seconds, but you wont get razor bumps!

  • TEND SKIN is a product used to treat and prevent razor burn and ingrowns. It saved my life!
