How to Shave Your Bikini Area


In todays day and age, the less hair the better. No afros, no men with long hair, and more full bush. There are a few different methods of pubic hair removal. Shaving, waxing, and laser hair removal. But waxing can be painful and laser hair removal expensive. Which leaves us with the most common method, shaving. When done right, shaving your own bikini line can save you money and be a lot more convenient than getting it done professionally. Here are a few tips on how to properly shave your bikini area.

Things You'll Need

  • Sharp Razor
  • Shaving cream
  • Mousturizer
  • Toner/aftershave
  • Hair conditioner
  • Soften the area you plan on shaving. Hot water will help soften the hair by itself but I recommend using a little hair conditioner. Just leave it in for a few minutes while your in the shower.

  • If you have really long hair, trim it down with a pair of scissors before you go at it with a razor. If the hair is longer than a half inch it tends to clog the razor.

  • Lather your pubic area with shaving cream. Any type will do. Shaving cream, foam, gel, or even just plain soap lathered up really well will work.

  • Using a sharp razor, shave with the grain of the hair in long slow motions. This will help prevent shaving rash in your pubic area as well as ingrown hairs. Shaving rash = red razor bumps.

  • Rinse the area clean and touch up any sports you might have missed. No one wants to see any hair outside of your bikini line! Shave against the grain if necessary for stubborn patches. But be careful not to cut yourself (ouch)!

  • Use an alcohol toner or after shave to disinfect any cuts you may have. This will also help close up any open follicles and prevent those awful red razor bumps which can ruin your bikini line. Follow that up with a moisturizer and your all set. This process can also be used to shave a male pubic area.
