I'm pretty sure that there are alternatives to shaving which people pay money for because they don't do this to you. Like "wax"
Personally I think people should either let their hairs hang out or wear a different swim-suit.

I see a reference, but I don't understand what you are saying.

You've never heard the expression? It refers to the hairs that hang out looking like a trapped spider.

Yes I know, they can be very beautiful, but I didn't understand what your thought or opinion was.

Sorry, I was just being a bit silly. I have nothing to offer in the way of advice on the subject, but personally I don't mind any amount or absence of hair.

1. Always keep the razor in a cup of oil - olive oil or mineral 9baby) oil will do.

2. Shower and use hair conditioner to soften the hair and skin.

3. It's actually the water that does the hard work of softening the hair , the soap is just as a lubricant for the razor so Hair conditioner may well work in more delicate places.

4. Either use an astringent after or cold water to tighten the skin surface.

Try hair conditioner instead of shaving cream. You will love it! It will leave your skin very smooth. If you already have bumps, try an over the counter after shave moisturizing cream.

I guess you want to know how to avoid them versus just getting rid of them?

Use a fresh razor (an old one will nick the skin) at the end of your shower with a good shaving gel or cream. For really sensitive areas, shave in the direction the hair grows (not against). Don't go over the same area multiple times (for best results use a 3, 4 or 5 blade razor), and then rinse well. After your shower, use an alcohol based toner, or witch hazel (to clean the shaved area to prevent infection), and if you are prone to skin irritation (and bumps), use a small amount of hydrocortisone cream (to reduce inflammation).
