Tips For Razor Burn | Big Sis Talk Series

| Palm Leaf Swimsuit (almost sold out, similar palm leaf suit here for $12) | Hat ($30 similar) | Earrings (similar, $15) | Sunglasses (similar) | Phone Case ($9) |

On Sunday I decided to spend a few hours by the pool for some well needed “me time,” which ended up turning out to be a cold and cloudy afternoon, but that’s beside the point. I threw on a cute white bikini and laid out a towel ready to relax. I laid down, sunglasses on and my phone in my hand ready to play some music, but that’s when I saw it – my razor burn. What a buzz kill.

I try not to get self conscious about many things, I mean pretty much every girl experiences razor burn at some point, right? But for some reason razor burn really bugs me. I just want my skin to look normal and smooth by my bikini and not like a breakout…

So I took to my Instagram story and asked you all for your tips, I received so many good ones! I also received even more messages just asking to me share what tips I received which made me feel like I wasn’t alone! One of my followers @madellyngrace gave me this idea to a girl talk post and I thought it would be such a fun series! I grew up with a big sis and I was able to go to her for anything so I want to do the same for you guys! If you’re wondering, my big sis gets waxes so that was her only tip, but I wanted more tips because I am a little scared to get a wax and I’m sure a lot of you are too!

Big Sis tips! What to do about razor burn around the bikini line by Lauren Lindmark on daily dose of charm


Tip #1: “I use the ‘anti-bumbps shave gel’ by Bikini zone RELIGIOUSLY” – @thebeginningofhannah on Instagram.

To be honest I don’t think I have ever bought a product specifically for razor bumps and I have no idea why! I want to go buy this one to try it. Has anyone else?!

Tip #2: “Get this stuff called tend skin” – @emmageoghegan_ on Instagram.

Again, I don’t think I have ever tried an actual product made for razor burn so I want to try this one too! Has anyone used this one?

Tip #3: “The best things that has worked for me with razor burn is deodorant! Swipe deodorant on your bikini line right after you shave it and it keeps your swimsuit from rubbing it raw” – @mady118 on Instagram.

This is the one tip I had heard before, but for some reason I don’t do! I am going to try it! Has anyone tried this tip and does it make your skin feel weird?

Tip #4: “Use a guys face razor, then put baby powder or deodorant not he area afterward to avoid redness.” – @ssbrabs on Instagram.

I had never heard of putting baby powder on your bikini line so I want to try this one! Sororties are the best places to find tips haha!

Tip #5: “I stoped using a razor all together and either use hair or pop a Tylenol and go to a wax!” – @alexa_mclain on Instagram.

I have never tried Nair, but I have heard mixed reviews! Waxes on the other hand are something I want to try, but I’m scared! Speaking of waxes though, I was contacted by a local wax company about collaborating so be on the lookout for another segment of this “Big Sis” series where I take you along with me and answer some FAQ about bikini waxes (if I man up and go haha)!

    I am so glad your are posting these, I think there is so many people out there like me who would love the advice of an older sibling and don’t have one because they are the oldest! Looking forward to hearing the waxing big sis talk.

    Razor burn is no joke! Not only does it physically burn, but it just looks so unattractive. I always have to remind myself though that unless people are intensely staring at my legs, they’re not going to notice

    Lauren, you need to go get a wax. You will never turn back.

    Yes, the idea is scary, and I will be completely honest the first time is painful. The pain only lasts for a second though and then it’s gone. The first wax might take about 10 minutes but after that they literally take 5 mins. I get Brazilian waxes (TMI…I know) and i get them every 4 weeks. If you go to a place that does hot wax WITHOUT the fabric strips it less painful and so quick. I go to a place called Waxon in Toronto, so if you can find a specialized place like that near you I promise you will thank me for it.

      Ahh thank you! I definitely think I am going to, I just don’t want to grow out my hair though haha (so TMI). But I will make an appointment and I’ll update you haha!!

        hahahahaha I think you’re past the point of TMI so don’t worry hahaha.

        Just do it – I promise, no regrets. And don’t be freaked out by the first appointment!
        Some things to expect:
        The waxer might ask you to take your pants off right there while she’s in the room, some give you a disposable thong and leave the room….either way, they’re gonna see your vajay (but they’ve seen so many they don’t care)
        The first time is the worst time – the first one hurts, but the pain lasts mere seconds, and as you continue your hair become thinner. It’s almost painless for me. Also – it’s not THAT bad.
        After, you need to exfoliate at least every other day because you can get ingrown hairs.

        Let me know how it goes!!
