Wax your bikini line. The pain will take your mind off your legs.

wow you're so lucky! You do know you've started on a slippery slope don't you?!! Have you got any Aftersun lotion - that will help the stinging

bet its his blunt razor.

in future always use a good sharp razor. i recommend the venus divine.

do you have any calomine? or some e45 cream?

ones with lubricating strips are better. just leave the skin to heal. it'll sting for a day or 2 then heal. dont shave them again for a little while.

i use a moisturising dry oil spray on my legs afterwards

Hair removal question generally ..... I had my bikini line waxed for the first time about 10 days ago ( ouch ) and there are "zits" on both sides now and it itches like hell .... that's why I went as I was sick to death with the "shaving stubble itch" ...

Is this normal - and how do I stop it PLEASE !!!
