Does anybody else get these? I know some are ingrowns and I can sort those out (mostly anyway) but I'm always really bumpy afterwards, and it only goes away when the hair starts growing back which kind of defeats the purpose. I've tried using 'Tend Skin' and 'Get the bump outta here' but neither are very effective. Any ideas ladies?

The same thing happnes to me i was told that i should exfoliate the area every time that i take a shower it should stop it happening and use a cream for ingrown hairs.If this keeps happing to me i will have to stop as it looks worse

The beautician told me the same, to exfoliate like hell - which I do, but it still happens. I wonder would it make a difference going to a wax specialist like Urban Wax rather than just a regular beauticians?

I'm the same I'm in the midlands but it'd be worth the trip if it sorted it out. It's such a pain though, I wish there was some miracle fix it. Well if I find anything I'll let you know.

I could be going crazy - but I could have sworn someone told me that Bio Oil is very good for that... Makes sense that it might. Could be worth a try - you can get Bio Oil in pharmacies and it's not too expensive (it's great for helping your skin mend if you have cuts and scratches so you don't scar).

my beautician told me to put aloe vera gel on it and keep putting it on for a few days after should help soothe this away

And if that doesn't work, I'll break a leaf off the aloe plant I have and try that out. Thanks shkyler, don't know why I didn't think of that before.
