When I try to shave my bikini area it always gets razor burn and looks really kind of gross. How do people shave down there? I use shaving cream and everything, I don't get it.

Well here is my opinion.
Waxing is flat out painful. That's one of the most sensitive places. It hurts worse down there.
The thing is the the hair is thicker and more coarse than hair anywhere else. Trim it first if its long. Take a hot bath for like 10 minutes, then use hair conditioner instead of shave gel. It works better because it makes hair softer. Take your time because nicks and cuts can cause infections and those suuuccckkk. Shave with hair growth in short motions. Clean out the razor like every few strokes. Make sure you use a NEW razor because the thick coarseness of the hair can dull a blade after just one shave. Afterwards apply lotion that has vitamin E in it and wear breathable fabric to avoid irritation.
Now, laser removal is super expensive and can be embarrassing.
I personally like sugaring. It is less painful than waxing and a lot cheaper. You can even make the stuff for it at home. Its also all natural, sugar, lemon juice, and water. No chemicals like waxing. For sugaring apply it against hair growth and remove quickly like waxing in the direction of hair growth instead of against it. Its less painful because it only sticks to the hair, not your skin, and removing with tthe direction of hair causes less irritation. Apply lotion after this as well.
If you use hair removal creams make sure you make sure it is safe for that area, but it should still only be used on the outer areas.
Hope this helped.:)0
