Buzzfeed discusses “How To Make Shaving Your Bikini Line Less Miserable” where Dr. Michele S. Green suggests point 4, which is to “Gently exfoliate your skin before you start shaving.”
“This primes the area so you can remove the hair more easily,” Dr. Michele S. Green, a New York City dermatologist, tells BuzzFeed Life. “It makes the skin softer, and makes the hair pop up a little bit, so it’s easier to get the hair at the root.” Plus, it also reduces the chance of ingrown hairs.
Later in the article Dr. Green also talks about waxing and laser hair removal treatments and what to expect from those. Find out more at – http://www.buzzfeed.com/nataliebrown/ways-to-make-shaving-your-bikini-line-less-miserable
