  • Tend Skin - it's available at most salons or at Walgreens.

  • My waxer is a big fan of exfoliation. I do it every day after waxing, and it makes a difference, but I still get some of the bumps and ingrowns.

  • Bikini Zone or tend skin, the bumps are where your hair has been ripped out and some blood comes to the service,, sometimes waxing with the direction of hair growth instead of against it can help,, but if you have coarse/resistant hair sometimes this will leave some behind :) You might also want to try cold wax,, it doesn't open up the hair follicle as much, but once again is not as good for coarse hair,, but if you have been waxing for a long time, your hair is perhaps finer already? Have you thought about laser hair removal or threading?

  • Exfoliate, use something like Bikini Zone, and try a soothing lotion or gel, like cocoa butter or aloe.
