IDK if this is the right category to post this under but I figured contest builders would know better than most others:
When I shave my chest and ab regions I constantly get ingrown hairs. New razor or old, electric blade or standard I just can't get rid of ingrown hairs especially around my upper chest/collar bone area. I've tried some Eucerin healing hand lotion I had laying around, it helped a little bit with the redness but not nearly enough to be considered good results...
Any suggestions?!? Thanks in advance!

I was getting it bad on my hamstrings/glutes. I started using a brand new razor every time and got a "bumpstopper" lotion for afterwards. It has some aort of alcohol in it, cant remember what its called off the top of my head. Seems to help quite a bit.556/325/622 - 1504 total raw @ 193

Instead, I use regular hair clippers:
Then use a girls razor - Th Schick Intuition which comes loaded with a bar of solid shave cream surrounding the razor.
I use mens aloe shave cream first, then shave.
I get the ingrownn hair bumps fir the first 2 weeks or so, but they go away with time.
Just dont try to pop them like pimples. That can create a nightmare situation. Especially if you are a OCD pimple popping scab picker.. Just avoid the bumps with the razor until they heal, the, shave again once it is safe.
That works for me.

Hey there, you need to consult a girl about this one, we are experts at the hair removal haha. I agree with the advice to exfoliate in the shower, you'll want to do this about 3x per week on the affected areas and definitly before you're planning to shave. St. Ives apricot scrub is a good choice, available at any drug store and cheap. Then shave in the direction of hair growth, NOT AGAINST it using shaving cream and follow up with a product called Bikini zone, also available at any drug store and cheap. If you don't like the bikini zone, pick up a bottle of Sea Breeze (in the facial care aisle), it is an astrinigent and it will burn but I promise it will work. Use the follow ups right after you dry off from the shower while your pores are still open from the hot water! Results guaranteed!
