Shave Your Pubic HairShaving pubic hair is more common than you may imagine. A poll by The Telegraph shows that 87 percent of women shave their pubic hair frequently. However, shaving your pubic hair is different from shaving hair from other parts of your body such as your legs and arms because you need to spend more time. Also, you need to shave slowly because of the sensitive nature of this private part.
The steps below will show you to shave your pubic hair with little to no abrasions.
The first step is to choose a shaving cream that is gentle on your skin. It is a good idea to find a shaving cream made mostly of natural ingredients to reduce the chances of adverse chemical reactions. Soap is a big no-no when it comes to shaving your pubic hair.
The second step is to invest in top-quality razors, preferably with multiple blades and a rotating head to give you a clean and close shave. Avoid cheap disposable razors to reduce cuts on your skin.
Once you have the shaving gel and razor, its time to get down to work. Start by trimming your public hair first with a pair of scissors. You can also use clippers if you feel comfortable. This trimming is highly recommended if you have not shaved for some time.
After trimming, have a hot bath as it will help to open hair follicles, that in turn, will make it easy to shave. Stay in the bath tub or shower for at least ten minutes for the best result.
Once the follicles are opened, it may be a good time to remove your dead skin cells too. Apply an exfoliator on your pubic area as soon as you are out of the shower.
Now, you are ready to shave. Apply a pre-shaving oil to lubricate the skin so that the razor can run through it smoothly. It will also irritation and other infections that are typical after a shave.
Next, apply the shaving gel. While applying gel, ensure that the pubic area is damp.
Run the blade through your pubic hair now. Use a fresh blade for every shave, and start with the direction of hair growth. Next, move in the reverse direction to get a close shave.
Lastly, clean the area and apply a moisturizer to reduce bumps and redness.
