    Hi everyone!

    I'm a 21-year-old female, and I'm EXTREMELY hairy. I'm blonde, but I have thick, dark hair on my legs, stomach, butt cheeks, around my nipples, etc. I've tried shaving, waxing, and epilating, but they all leave me with a really bad rash - bumps, redness, pimples, tons of ingrown hairs! I've tried exfoliating beforehand, exfoliating afterwards, moisturising, etc., but nothing seems to work. I'm seeing a new guy and the whole thing is really affecting my self-esteem.

    Any advice/suggestions are welcome and hugely appreciated.

    I did once, and from what I remember, it only removed some of the hair. Do you have any recommendations for a good brand? Particularly one I can use on my bikini area?

    Thanks.

    Veet BodyCurv is one of the good brands for that area.

    What I can deduct from your description, you probably have some sort of allergic reaction to the stuff you're using. That or maybe your skin is too sensitive. Either way, I recommend finding a good dermatologist and letting them have a look at it. Other than that, I'd say hold of on whatever you're using. If the aftereffects you're experiencing are that bad, they may be just preliminary; which implies that they have the potential to get worst.

    Remington is a good brand. Sorry for the late reply, been so busy with uni.
