Question:

My legs and bikini area always fill up with ingrown hairs and red bumps/rashes. It’s really embarrassing and I don’t know what to do 🙁 please help:(

Answer:

Laser hair removal is the best way to treat this problem as it stops the hair growth and stops the hair from ‘curling up’ underneath the skin leading to ingrown hairs, lumps and bumps.
