I’m desparate for some advice regarding shaving. I have very dark coarse hair on my legs and in particular bikini area. I’ve tried waxing for a couple of years but couldn’t cope with the ingrown hairs - my legs and bikini line looked good for about a week but then as the hairs started pushing through - I got loads of lumps and bumps and ingrown hairs - all over!! I’ve tried using an epilator but the bumps were even worse with that.
I decided that I couldn’t cope with the waxing anymore and went back to shaving. My lower legs look fine (a bit prickly but at least they’re not spotty). I have to shave every second day and use a pumice stone inbetween which seems to be helping but my thighs and bikini area look awful. After I shave it goes red and ‘dotty’ and then by the next day the hairs seem to have pushed through or made bumps and I always get ingrowns. I also itch quite badly on the back of my thighs and get little red bumps there. Even though I avoid scratching the hairs push against the skin and make these horrible red bumps!
I’m going on holiday to a really hot place for a month in December and I’m panicing. I would love to wear a bikini. I can’t afford laser treatment and time is running out.
I need a miracle!!
Please can anyone offer some advice - I’ll try anything now.
