    Not gross at all!

    Being a sex forum, I'm assuming you are talking about shaving your pubic region, as you didn't specify. That area is highly sensitive, and ingrown hairs are common. A few tips...
    • If the hair is long, try trimming it first with scissors or clippers
    • Start with a warm bath and soak for a few minutes before starting
    • Apply shave cream/gel, and let it sit for a minute or 2
    • Always use a new blade! Most find Gillette Mach 3 works best
    • start shaving in the direction of hair growth. Short strokes work best, and clean the razor often.
    • Re-apply shaving cream as needed. Keep the area well lubricated!
    • Once smooth, I find you get even smoother by then reversing direction against the grain. This is often a cause of ingrown hairs, though.
    • Rinse off well, then pat dry (don't rub)
    • Apply a moisturizer to the area. There are many good products for this, unfortunately most are designed for women. If this isn't a concern for you, they work very very well, and most have a unisex scent.
    • After a few days, you should exfoliate the area. It's the excess dead skin that traps the hair and causes ingrowns. Only exfoliate every couple days, over exfoliating can make it worse.
    • Products like Tend Skin can help with bumps and ingrown hairs.

    Good luck, and enjoy being smooth!!!
