Step #1- Exfoliate and remove dead skin cells with a wet wash cloth or loofah.

Step#2- Open pores by soaking skin in warm water, or applying warm, wet washcloth.

Step#3-Apply shave gel or cream.

Step#4-Shave in the direction of hair growth with razor that is replaced every 4-6 shaves.. (I know!)

Step#5- Apply cool, wet washcloth to freshly shaved skin.


Step#6-Use a daily treatment like Bikini Bump Blaster pads ($10-at Ulta) to keep follicles clear in between shaves.

If you still get bumps, apply spot treatment with topical hydrocortisone or a cream with 2% salicylic acid.
