I struggled with this issue for a really long time. Waxing and shaving caused awful ingrowns and then hyperpigmentation. Nothing worked for me until I decided to get laser hair removal on my bikini line. It worked wonders, not only to get rid of the hair and the ingrowns but also to get rid of the hyperpigmentation. Within 6 months to a year the dark spots were completely gone. This worked for a number of my friends who had the same issue as well. There are so many deals for laser hair removal nowadays too, which helps!

These are very good tips for the ingrown hair, but what do you say about the hyperpigmentation of the skin that is already there because of previous ingrown hair? I can prevent it from now own, but how do I treat what is currently looking like a blemish?

You can exfoliate in the shower including a Salicylic Acid body wash. Then because we want to make sure not to clog pores, look for a facial moisturizer with lots of antioxidant vitamins. This will help hold up the pigmentation process so the skin can heal itself. It will take a while, but these two things will help speed things up a bit.

I am an Esthetician that specializes in bikini waxes and acne skin care.  Ingrown hairs on the bikini line actually have more to do with pressure and friction more than anything else, believe it or not.  Even before you look for a remedy, there are a few things you'll need to change in order to treat the problem.
1) You must wear 100% cotton underwear that covers the entire affected area, no matter what fabric you're wearing. That goes even more so with jeans - you should NEVER wear thong underwear with jeans or any other material that is textured.
2) Never wear underwear with lace or mesh at all.  Lace and mesh create friction, which causes the worst ingrowns.
3) There is no need to ever apply any moisturizers in that area.  Your perspiration is enough - the vast majority of body lotions anywhere in the world have pore clogging ingredients in their base.
4) Exfoliate every time you shower.  Exfoliating gloves are the best for this.
5) You can use any acne remedy after your shower, but once you change your underwear to only 100% smooth cotton that covers everything, you won't have to use medicine for very long.

I've had the same problem for years now. I've been so self-conscious about my bikini area that I too refrained from wearing bikinis; but there are inexpensive remedies. Laser hair removal does not have to be your only option.
 I first, stopped shaving and made a switch to waxing (as it allowed me to less frequently remove hairs from that area). Then, I began using a product called Prince Reigns Ingrown Hair remedy. In as little as a month I saw substantial effects on the dark spots I've had for years on my bikini zone. It effectively thins the hair in the applied area, preventing it from causing ingrown hairs. Additionally, I used exfoliating gloves and body scrubs to remove dead skin particles. I've just now started applying facial dark spot and fade creams. It's too soon to see their effects but I'm hopeful! It's been about 60 days since my first wax and I can honestly say, under this regimen, I have seen great results! 

Best of luck, 
Kate

If you should chose to move forward with laser hair removal, you should make sure that the treatment will be effective on your specific skin type. If it's not, it can worsen dark spots, as it is a laser that applies intensive heat to the skin and hair follicle. Though there are several deals available that make it more affordable, make sure that the specific laser being used is best suited to your complexion.

There is a new product that dislodges ingrown hair while exfoliating the skin. I wax and use The BumpBan in between waxes. It works great for me it's only 15 bucks or so. www.BumpBan.com

Laser hair removal is the only solution for ingrowns. I had terrible ingrowns around my belly button after waxing. I live in florida and I wear a bikini almost every weekend, there were times when it was so bad that I couldnt wear a bathing suit.
To make things worse, once the ingrown is out it leaves a scar which then gets dark. 
I tried the most expensive exfoliants, scrubs, you name it. 
The only thing that works was laser hair removal. Within 2 months the ingrowns were gone and the spots started to fade. 
Dont even play with it, with scrubs and plucking them out. You irritate your skin and cause scarring  and make it all worse.

AN Amazing Testimony On A Spell Caster Who help me to get pregnant, So me and my partner have been trying for a baby for the last 5 years now and we have had no luck. I don't have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when I'm ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 2 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to a year to conceive but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3months of trying and it is really getting to me. my partner had a fertility test about a year ago and his sperm were fine. I'm thinking it could be a problem with me but I've never had any symptoms of any problems. My partner does smoke and have the occasional Priest ink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional Priest ink. i know i'm slightly overweight but that shouldn't affect our chances too much,one faithful day my friend told me to contact a spell caster that help her aunty, then i contact the man on this email: babaka.wolf@gmail.com , after three months the doctor confirm that i am pregnant thank you Priest  Babaka for helping me get a baby, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: babaka.wolf@gmail.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine.

THE TRUE SOLUTION TO MARRIAGE , CHEATING , DIVORCE , AND RELATIONSHIP ISSUES

I will try to make this short as possible. In July I found out that my husband of almost 17yrs was having an affair and he actually brought this woman to my home. I was devestated to say the least. I met my husband 18yrs ago and he swept me off my feet and we got married 11months after we met. We had a great marriage (I thought) we have two beautiful boys. In 2015 we moved 800 miles away to a very small town due to his job. I quit my high paying job at a company that I had worked at for 14yrs to move away from my family and job/career to be a stay at home mom. Then here we are 2 and 1/2 years later going through a divorce and no job. I felt schizophrenic going through all of these emotions from acceptance, to denial, to how can this be and back again. I tried all the best effort i could to get him back from this woman whom he was havin gan affiar with, and make him see how much i love to be with him. but he insisted he never wanted to be with me anymore. Its was almost 4 months since he started living with this other woman, then i decided to use DR BLESSING spells for help because i had no other choice and i felt everything was lost to me. I had the most wonderful and happy marriage after using his spell in just 24 hours, and that was how my marital life was fixed back to its right track. If you are one of the people who is in a loveless and unhappy marriage that cannot be salvaged (and you can only determine that by being very honest with yourself), believe me...there IS light at the end of this tunnel.
