The Right Way to Shave Your Bikini Line
It may be the end of summer this week but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of grooming hair down there for all the ladies out there. While some women opt for waxing the area, shaving is still the most popular form of grooming, according to a study published in JAMA Dermatology. Unfortunately, one thing that always goes hand in hand while shaving your pubic hair are bumps, redness, and irritation.
Want to learn the right way to shave in order to avoid these pesky side effects? Follow these steps:
Dont Skip Pre-Shave Prep
Has it been awhile since your last shave (no judgement here!)? Start by trimming your hair first before taking a razor to it. Next, soak the bikini area with warm water for 10 minutes to help prevent razor burn..this will soften your skin which makes it easier to remove hair. Lastly, exfoliate and moisturize your skin. Exfoliating once a week will help remove dead skin and extend the life of your razor blades.
Buy The Right Razor
You should invest in two different razors - one for your bikini area and one for your legs and underarms. The bikini area is sensitive which means it needs a razor that is less harsh on the skin - two to three blades max.
DO NOT shave against the direction of hair growth. By shaving in the direction that your hair grows you prevent razor burn as well as ingrown hairs. Your blade should feel smooth over your hair, if you feel a lot of pressure and resistance, you’re pressing too hard.
Post-Shave Rinse And Moisturize
Hold a cold compress to the area for about 10 minutes to prevent irritation. The last step is to apply moisturizer. Try to stay away from heavy creams with perfume and alcohol ingredients. Try a moisturizer with aloe vera or lavender oil to help sooth the area.
