    Ingrown bikini line hair
    bird_nerd posted:
    So i tried tweezing my bikini area the result was these two really bad ingrown hairs. the top one in the picture grew and pussed, then popped and i thought it was done, but then it grew into a lump with no head. it's just hard. I've been trying to exfoliate the area but nothing to far.

    Fret not it doesn't look that bad. Also you are so awesome for posting a pic. I too have the same issues! I work as a swim teacher and am constantly in a bathing suit and wonder how my non-black counter parts keep their area so smooth. I wax usually, shave if I am broke and exfoliate... However , I still have dark areas around my bikini area...

    Have you discovered anything that works?

    natural ways to lighten and soothe irritation. Really hope this helps
