    I'm in my early twenties and, even though it's pretty embarrassing, I've always been really hairy. For the most part, I tried not to think about it too much growing up since I never dated or wanted to be with anyone. Now though, there is someone in my life. We hardly see each other (though that is a tragic tale for another thread) so it's hard enough as it is. I don't even know how long we'll be in each other's lives but I miss him every day that I don't see him. I want to make the most of the time we have together.

    The thing is, I have a major ingrown hair problem which means I can't even let myself do anything with him. I know it may not sound serious but I literally cannot remove hair without having bumps and ingrown hairs all over. My legs are disgusting all the way up. All my life I've had so many body issues and a lot of them I've just learnt to accept I can never change. But this I can't get past. What man expects to get intimate with a girl only for her to have ingrown hairs all over? It's disgusting. I've never known any other girl to have this issue. Whenever I see girls' legs or bikini line, I always look and it makes me feel so *****y. Why can't I just be normal? I don't know what to do. I've been so depressed over this person not being in my life and now that he's back in my life, I feel depressed because I can't let him near me.

    After removing hair you should always exfoliate afterwards and every day for a few days after. Don't wear tight clothing also helps. Have you tried these methods?

    i would say exfoliate quite hard in the shower then moisturize so it softens your skin and repeat
