Re: shaving

Hmmm...alot of the breaking out may have to do with what way you are shaving the hair off. If you are shaving up (against the hair growth), try shaving down (with the hair growth). It takes a little bit longer to shave, but it really does help. And use shaving cream if the hair is short, I've found that helps alot.

Re: shaving

im definatly not a girl, but when guys shave ther faces and break out, it can be caused by the razor itself. some guys cant use electric razors or some cant use regular razors...also that bakini gel stuff could do it to. if you have sensative skin, alot of aplicants will make you break out. use shaving cream like said before and go with the grain, not against. going against can cause ingrown hairs and cause some breakout...comming from a guy..i hope some of this helps!

Re: shaving

as horrible as this may sound, i would recommend waxing. reason being, i cut my "self" shaving almost a month ago, and it still hasn't healed . VERY painful!!

also, they have electric razors with "pop-up bikini trimmers"...can't remember the name tho.

Re: shaving

I used shaving cream to shave and the cream is what gave me the red bumps and it hurt. I now use soap dove soap and make sure i foam it up really good and i use a mens razor because they are more gentle because it's used on there face . Good luck
