A Bump Free Bikini Line...

Updated: Feb 3

I tried on a Brazilian cut bikini in a recent youtube video and received questions on how I keep my bikini line clear. I understand this is an area of concern for many of us and the real short answer is I don't. My bikini line isn't poreless, the photoshop of the internet makes us think that things are this way. No, I did not photoshop my bikini line but if you zoom in close enough *please don't* you'll find that my b-zone isn't all clear either. Those of us blessed with coarse hair tend to experience in-growns after hair removal no matter the method (wax, shave, epilate or lazer)


I don't use anything fancy when I get rid of the hair in my b-zone but I do treat the delicate area nice. Wearing lose clothes to bed, no undies, keeping the area moisturized, exfoliating dead skin, treating irritation...

Here are the not so fancy products I recommend to treat your b-line

  1. Hydrocortisone cream: Hydrocortisone cream is an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication It reduces redness, itching, and swelling associated with b-zone bumps.

  2. Tea tree oil: Tea tree oil is a natural remedy for treating a wide range of skin conditions, including bikini line bumps. It has antiseptic properties that can help to reduce inflammation and prevent the growth of bacteria that can cause pimples and other skin irritation. To use tea tree oil for b-zone bumps, be sure to dilute a few drops of the oil in a carrier oil like coconut oil. Don't forget to patch test the oil on a small area of skin before using it on larger areas, as some people may experience skin irritation from using tea tree oil.

  3. Witch hazel: Witch hazel is a natural astringent that can help to soothe irritated skin and reduce inflammation. It works by tightening the skin and reducing swelling, which can help to reduce the appearance of bumps. To use witch hazel for bikini line bumps, simply apply a small amount of the astringent to a cotton pad and dab it gently.

  4. Aloe vera gel: Aloe vera gel has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, and hydrate dry skin. Apply a small amount of the gel to the b-zone, and allow it to absorb into the skin. It's important to only use pure aloe vera gel, as products that contain added fragrances or other ingredients can lead to skin irritation.

  5. Salicylic acid: Salicylic acid is a type of acid that is commonly found in many over-the-counter acne treatments. It works by unclogging pores, reducing inflammation, and preventing future breakouts in the bikini area. e.l.f makes a serum with SA in the ingredients, I tend to use face products in my b-zone also. Linking the serum below!

Please note that these are general guidelines, and it's always best to consult with a dermatologist before starting any new skin care routine.
