Regardless the method you use to remove the hair, at the end there is always the danger that you might end up with bumps, irritation and or a really annoying itch.
The solution to that problem is of course lotion. Scented or unscented there are many different brands of lotion that you can use at the end of the process in order to make sure that the area is well taken care of. There are also many razor bump creams you can use if you feel that a simple lotion is not working for you.
It is recommended however that you use unscented products. Scent on a product usually means chemical and if you are not one hundred per cent sure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients used to manufacture the lotion or cream of your choice then the least you can do is lower the odds of a reaction by choosing the product with as few “dangerous ingredients” as possible.
Again apply a small amount of the product somewhere else on your body to make sure that you are completely safe and allergy free.

The TIME Tip
One last tip that not many women consider in time is TIME itself. Whether you choose to shave, wax, have a laser therapy or use a hair removal cream you always know that the hair will grow eventually. You need to make sure that you go through the process of removing the hair at a time that is right for you according to your plans.
Shave, Wax or Laser: what to choose?
If you are going to shave, you should do it the day before you wear your bikini and head to the beach. After shaving hair start to grow within a few hours. You do not want any unpleasant surprises if you go to the beach two or even three days after you’ve shaved.
Same goes for the waxing and the hair removal cream as well. It does of course take a few more days, even weeks at times, for the hair to start growing back, but you should always consider the possibility that you might not have access to a salon on your vacation, your very own personal kit for waxing or the hair removal cream of your preference.
When it comes to the laser therapy, we must note that it is the one way that makes the hair to take much longer before they start growing again. Approximate time is about fifty to sixty days before the hair starts appearing again at a much slower pace and many times they’re much thinner than before.
However, it must be noted that the dermatologists who also provide laser therapy, strongly recommend that if you are planning on removing hair via laser technology in order to be ready for the summer, you must absolutely do it at least a week before you start going out in the sun, and under no circumstances must you ever have laser therapy once you have already gotten a good old sun tan. The danger for your skin is rather high in this case.
A woman’s body is her temple
And it needs the best care. The skin, especially in that region, can be very sensitive. Make sure that you are very gentle when treating it. You will of course get used to the process of removing your hair eventually, and you will find the way that suits you the best after a few trials.
Research: One of the things you must absolutely remember is research. Taking care of the area down might be for looking good in your bikini but it must be done with absolute care. Do not feel bad about asking as many questions as possible in order for you to be fully aware of the product you are using (wax, cream) or the services that you are purchasing (salon, laser).
