Do you want to wear that itsy bitsy, teeny weeny (insert your favourite colour and pattern) bikini? Then don’t miss out on these six simple tips for how to make shaving your bikini line as easy as, well, shaving your legs!
Yep, we said it. Bikini line. The land down under. Whatever you call your lady parts, we know it can get hairy. The skin is sensitive, and the hair can be coarse, but shaving your privies is not as tricky as you may think. So whether you want a simple trim and clean-up or to get rid of all the hair in sight, we have obtained your bikini line covered (or, we suppose, uncovered!) with these six simple steps.
1. Snip, Snip!
Keep in mind that razors are not suitable for long hair, so you may want to begin by trimming hair that is long enough for them. Next, you can use a trimmer, scissors, and an electric shaver to go to trimming these babies. This will help you prevent hair from getting caught in the blades and make it easier to shave the area. So snip away, baby!
2. Hydrate Those Hairs
Shave using a hot shower or bath before using the razor or tweezer to minimize your soaking time. Be extra concerned about your scrotum, as your skin and nerves in this area are very sensitive. Maintain the utmost personal hygiene with this in mind. You’ll be glad you did!
3. Lather Up
Use a shave gel for a smooth shave. This mixture smells wonderful, but it forms a protective layer between the blades and skin, ensuring a smooth glide. Shave gel also hydrates and softens the hair, making it easy to cut. We’re for efficacy.
4. Shave Away
To allow the blades to slide as close to the skin as possible, pull the skin taut. Begin by shaving in the direction of hair development, using light, soft strokes. Apply extra shaving gel and shave against the growth law. Keep in mind that the skin is sensitive down there, so use as few strokes as possible.
5. Rinse, Dry, Moisturize!
When finished, rinse with cool water, pat dry, and apply your favorite moisturizer. Then feel free to try on your favorite bikini to check out your awesome results. Enjoy it! Enjoy it!
6. Keep It Fresh
Blunt blades aren’t efficient and may also cause irritation, so replace razor blades regularly. How do you know your blades are dull? Discomfort while shaving, missed hairs, itchy skin, and a shave that isn’t as close as usual are all good signs your blades need to be replaced. In addition, fresh blades will capture more hairs in fewer strokes, and fewer strokes mean less irritation for the skin. It is a no-brainer!
Regular exfoliation also helps remove and reduce flaky skin and helps prevent ingrown hairs. Bonus points if you moisturize daily.
