Next time use shaving gel. ...Read more

It causes nicks and cuts, makes you more prone to ingrown hairs and increases your risk of skin infections. You might consider a hair removal cream. Also consider waxing or laser hair removal. As far as dark spots are concerned I wouldn't recommend lightening cream in that area as skin is too delicate. ...Read more
