Why it works: There are no ifs ands or buts about it: A bikini wax hurts. So if being hairless and smooth down there is your grooming preference, braving the salons every few weeks might feel a little masochistic. Enter BareEASE, a care package of analgesic cream and a latex panty that numbs and protects before you get on the table.

The cream contains four percent Lidocaine, the highest level of the numbing agent allowed by the FDA for over-the-counter use. After applying the cream to your bikini area, slip on the latex panty to prevent it from rubbing off and ensure it is absorbed into the skin. After 45 minutes, the area will be anesthetized and ready for (just about) anything. The cream is safe to use before any type of wax, laser or electrolysis hair removal, so you can nix the pain no matter your preferred method.

Why you care: In a YouBeauty poll, 74 percent of readers said they use some form of hair removal method. More than half of them either go completely bare down there or keep a landing strip; the rest said they only clean up hair around the edges. This will make it more bearable, whether it’s a Brazilian or just some simple bikini line maintenance.

Where to get it: Dr. Edna's Bare Ease Kit, $18, is available at BeautySage.com
