[QUOTE=peaswink]So, Eyeris' method worked great the first time. How often should I wait between shaving? I shaved 2 days later, and it was HORRIBLE. Am I the only one who has such troubles with this? Maybe I will just go for the stinkin laser treatment. Problem is, I am kinda late to have it done for this summer season...So, not sure where to take it from here. Should I be shaving every day, cause doesnt seem like that will work for me? Any more suggestions????I dont wanna be bearin bumy bikini lines this summer, but I cant get it right even in the spring!!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![/QUOTE]

Hi Peaswink,

Sorry that my method didn't work for you past the first time. Here's a couple tips that may help get you over the hump. First, in between shaving, clean the area with a little alcohol and dust with powder when dry. That will help keep it bacteria free (a big cause of bumps). The next big cause are ingrown hairs. And then there's the big combo of infected ingrown hairs. The combination of Aspirin and alcohol should help to elimate both. Aspirin not only helps to decrease the redness and irritation of shaving, but it also acts as a gentle exfoliator - keeping your pores clears so that new hair growth won't become ingrown. The alcohol will keeps the area relatively free of the bacteria that cause irritation and sometimes infection.
If you don't want to shave every day, try waxing using the Aspirin mask right after and maintain with alcohol and powder until it grows back. The trick with this method is to be super-diligent. If you want a bump free bikini line, you will have to treat the area daily or you're asking for trouble:)
After shaving and treating your bikini line for several weeks, your skin will eventually "toughen up" and it won't take so much work.
About laser treatments - they do work, but they are expensive and NOT permanent. I had my bikini line lasered about 4 years ago and it gradually grew back to what it was before. Plus I suffered way more ingrown hairs than I ever did from waxing or shaving. But everyone's different and you may have a better response.
One last tip - the night before you plan on shaving, use the aspirin mask on your bikini line and leave it overnight. Shave and repeat the process. You should also keep the area as dry as possible and stay away from underwear that rubs right after shaving (no underwear or the boy-cut style are ideal). Powder it frequently during the day if you can. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but it is. When you have a stubborn bikini line like we do, you gotta go the extra mile. Hope this helps and happy shaving!!
