I shave my bikini area because I’m allergic to most waxes, but I still get a bumpy rash along my bikini line. Is there anything I could use to prevent this?
Shaving or waxing can cause the hair to split and loop around just under the surface of the skin. When the hair underneath the skin starts to grow it pushes up against instead of through the skin. We call this an ‘ingrown’ hair, and this is causing what looks like a ‘bumpy rash’. Products that contain acetylsalicylic acid that exfoliate the skin can help to soften the skin and allow the hairs to push through. If ingrown hairs are a consistent issue for you, consider laser hair removal.
