What’s everyone using to exfoliate?
I got 5 sessions of laser hair removal on my bikini area and my underarms. Best money I ever spent. I’m not hair free but I have a lot less 🙌🏼 and I use a sugar wax and trim in between. When and if I shave I always regret it. Good luck
Omg same here. . Following
IPL. If you’ve got dark hair and fair skin, it’s as good as gone.
The one thing that has solved this issue for me was laser hair removal! And I do not regret spending the money on it one bit.
Tend Skin! It’s a holy grail toner that prevents ingrown hairs!! It closes the pores. Look it up!
I used a disposable razor once for each shave. I read the bacteria can be a culprit for in grown hairs. I started feeling guilty for being wasteful so I switched to a really good shaver that you can change out the blades. The old school kind. I clean the blade after each use with alcohol. Both methods have worked for me.
I’m an esthetician that used to work in a Brazilian wax salon and this is really common with people who have curly hair. What is your form of hair removal? Are you shaving?
I struggled for YEARS I then went and had laser! Changed my life! No hairs and no scars! AMAZING!!!!!
I buy something called “Anthony” from Macy’s. Works great
I used to have strawberry pegs really bad. That’s when you can still see the dark hair/pores even after you shave. I used benzonite clay and exfoliate every shower and it went away!
Well, I suffer the same. What helped me a lot was to get laser done in that area, or wax.
Use charcoal soap. You will be surprised how well Charcoal soap works. I use it for everything!
I only get them at the top of my bikini area but they are so hard to get rid of. This is the first summer I seem to be getting it under control. I have been exfoliating like crazy and am using bikini zone.
You should try using essential oils. Specifically tea tree oil and lavender mixed with a little bit of coconut oil. It works wonders for me!!! I use YoungLiving essential oils and they are a lifesaver for multiple things.

I use a trimmer instead of shaving. It’s worked well for me. It have a men’s schick hydro styling razor.
I work for a dermatologist and it’s an easy fix ! Get clindamycin to prevent it, it’s called folliculitis
Black salve amazon has it and there is a brand in the stores called pride lil orange container like a lip gloss you’ll find it in the men’s dept usually at drug stores
I feel you girl and it’s gunna take time but the best thing I ever did for my bikini area was exfoliate EVERYDAY!! And nair! Throw that razor away! Either wax or nair lol that’s my only advice
Folliculitis is very common! I get it real bad shaving no matter what I do. No matter what razor, conditioner, exfoliating, etc. the only thing that doesn’t give me it is sugar waxing! No bacteria like regular paraffin waxes that cause the nasty infections!
I have advice!!!! And it’s funny because I was literally just talking about this with my friend today at the beach. Anyway, there’s three things you can do to stop the ingrowns. 1. Exfoliate like crazy. 2. Shave using conditioner (I swear it works, google it!!) 3. Afterwards, use some type of toner/aftershave with alcohol in it to close your pores. It stings a bit but not too bad. You can use alcohol wipes or perfume that has alcohol in it. Eventually, your skin will get used to it and you can skip steps 1 and 3 and just shave using conditioner. Again, I know it sounds weird but it works!!! I hope this helps 💚
Definitely try the conditioner and the alcohol toning after to close up those pores! I used to get them allllll the time and tried everything; now I’m at the point where I just use the conditioner and haven’t gotten one in months!! Good luck!
Hahaha you know it's not a topic that is talked about much so that's one mad coincidence! 😂😂😂 thank you so much! I exfoliate daily but I like your consistent approach, I guess I just find it hard to get into a routine! I'm definitely going to give the conditioner a shot too 💜💜💜😍😍😍
Okay I have no advice but GIRL this is my life, I feel you !
I feel ya.... Thank you for your warm wishes haha I am just so fed up of feeling like everyone is looking at my flaws ... Black curly hair sucks lol! I even had a soooo much arm/back/nipple/facial hair mustache sorta during puberty (yes puberty hated me Hahaha) but thankfully I've managed to control that with epilation and waxing!😊😊😊
I also have no advice but am here for moral support! This is my life! Summer is the worst! 😭 I care less about my plus size body in a swimsuit than I do about my legs/bikini line. I just can’t get a clean, beautiful shave! Uhg.
