Shaving bikini-line

My name is Louise and I am 16. Last summer I shaved my bikini line, but found that I had to repeat it two days later. When I came back from holiday it was really itchy. I'm going on holiday again soon and want to know if depilatory creams are better.

Between shaving and depilatories, it is really a matter of choice. Shaving is quick and easy, but does the hair does grow back quickly. Depilatory creams do give you a few more days grace, but they tend to smell horrid and make a bit of a mess. I would recommend that you have your bikini line waxed professionally. This means a hassle, itch free holiday, and a bikini line that won't need attention for 4-6 weeks.
