It’s not just an aesthetic choice: a little ‘down there’ grooming can make you feel lighter, cleaner, and fresher. Here’s the guide to safe and smooth intimate shaving. But, before you begin, you should understand how to shave the bikini area properly. One of the most sensitive areas of your skin is your intimate area. As a result, traditional razors can easily cause painful bumps, nicks, nicks, and irritation. This also makes waxing large areas of hair from the root a painful option. Some people choose to avoid the pain by using a hair removal cream, but the strong chemicals in these creams are especially dangerous to use in this delicate area. Trimming or shaving pubic hair with tools that protect your skin while effectively removing hair is the simplest, safest, and least painful method.
This step-by-step guide to safe and smooth intimate shaving will walk you through the entire intimate process, including helpful tips on how to shave ‘down there’ safely and with smooth results!
When shaving the bikini area, take your time.
Patience is the key to shaving pubic hair without nicks or irritation. Shaving the bikini area is not something you should do hastily. Play it safe and slow, and use the proper tools to achieve smooth results with minimal irritation or cuts.
What to do before shaving pubic hair for clean skin and clean results?
Cleaning the bikini area before shaving reduces the risk of infection. Warm water and a mild shower gel should be used to cleanse your skin. Warm water relaxes and softens your skin, but don’t let it get too hot: too much heat can irritate and make your skin more sensitive. After that, exfoliate your skin with a gentle loofah or scrub. This removes dead skin cells that can clog your pores and cause ingrown hairs after shaving. Then, pat yourself dry lightly with a soft towel.
First and foremost, trim before shaving the bikini area.
Always begin by trimming before shaving the bikini area. Don’t forget to apply Transparent Shave Gel to the area. It makes it much easier to see what you’re doing, and it’s also better for your razor: short hairs don’t get stuck as easily. This saves you and your skin from an unpleasant pulling sensation and potential irritation.
It’s best to use a tool designed specifically for this delicate area for safe and effective trimming. The Bikini trimmer has rounded blades that cut hairs to your desired length with no nicks or cuts. To remove as much hair as possible before shaving, cut to 0.5mm lengths. Alternatively, to maintain a neat crop in some areas, cut the hairs to 3mm.
Shaving the bikini line and other intimate areas
After tidying up with a trimmer, you can proceed to shave the bikini area. Turn your leg outwards and place your foot on a stool to make your skin even and taut for a smooth and cut-free shave. It’s best to use a tool with a small shaving head, such as the LetsShave Evior Bikini Razor, for uneven areas like this. You can achieve both effective and comfortable results in the sensitive area without any irritation and rashes.
After you’ve cleaned up your bikini line, you can proceed to shave pubic hair in the most sensitive areas. If you’re content with a cleanly trimmed intimate area and a shaved bikini area, that’s fantastic! Your skin will appreciate it. If not, make certain that you can see everything clearly. To avoid scratches and achieve a smoother finish, pull your skin taut while shaving. Shave in the direction of hair growth at first, then against it if necessary – but don’t shave the same area too many times. Finally, rinse and pat dry the affected area with lukewarm water. Ta-da!
After intimate shaving, pamper yourself.
You know how to shave ‘down there,’ but how do you keep it soft and comfortable afterward? After trimming and shaving the bikini area, rinsing, and drying, apply a gentle balm to your skin. Make sure it’s designed specifically for this sensitive area, and look for products that contain soothing aloe vera just like LetsShave After Shave Balm. Also, for the time being, keep tight or synthetic underwear in the drawer. Stick to cotton to let your skin breathe without causing irritation.
With all of these best ways to shave pubes tips under your belt (so to speak), you’re ready for your smoothest, calmest shave yet!
