No matter what, I always get razor bumps and scars shaving my bikini line (upper thighs).
I exfoliate, use a clean razor with soap and warm water, and use an astringent after which helps a little. But it's always too ugly to wear a bathing suit.
What techniques & specific products do you use? thnx

my skin is super-sensitive and i'm allergic to both nair and wax, so neither of those is an option for me.
if you're stuck shaving, lather up and make sure you only move the razor in one direction (the direction that the hair grows in). also, change your blades regularly~ i use gillette sensitive with aloe vera; it has 5 blades and i can still get a close shave without completely destroying my skin.
if the skin does get irritated, i have aloe vera cooling gel (the same most people use for sunburns) to calm things down.1
