The Best Bikini Trimmers, Shavers, and Epilators for Bump-Free Skin in 2020
Removing hair around your bikini area is, quite literally, a total pain. Red, itchy bumps and large, angry ingrown hairs can make you wish you hadn’t taken a razor to it at all.
That’s why the tools you use and how you use them can make all the difference. Your at-home hair removal options: razors, trimmers, and devices like epilators. Trimmers are usually more cost-effective, and cut hairs further away from the skin, reducing the risks of ingrowns.
How to use a bikini trimmer or shaver for bump-free results
Use shaving cream: If you’re reaching for a razor, shave right out of the shower (when hair follicles are open) and apply a fragrance-free shaving cream (it’s gentler on the sensitive skin in this area), says Michele Farber, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist with Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City.
