Pubic Hair Removal – Tips When Shaving

June 10th, 2021

In some cultures pubic hair removal has been performed for centuries for hygiene and other reasons. Now it is becoming widely accepted all over the world and both men and women are keen to find a pubic hair removal method which suits them.

Shaving is inexpensive and easily done at home although there are certain precautions that need to be met. Additionally, new personal shavers which have come on the market in recent years make pubic hair removal by shaving a much easier option. (See resource box at the end of this article)

Use these tips to perform pubic hair removal safely if shaving is your choice:

Never use the old-fashioned switch-blade razor. It is quite unsuitable for pubic hair removal and can be dangerous.
Choose a female razor, obtainable from Wilkinson Sword or other well known razor manufacturers, rather than an ordinary safety razor. The design makes it much more difficult to cut yourself.
Opt for a more expensive good quality razor rather than a cheap throw away which is more likely to cause nicks, soreness and razor burns in this sensitive area.
If the pubic hair is thick and long use small scissors to trim down the hair to about a quarter of an inch. This will avoid blunting and clogging the razor too quickly.
Before performing a pubic hair removal session, wet a large, washcloth and lay it over the entire pubic area for two or three minutes.
Alternatively, take a long hot bath or stay in the shower for a while making sure the pubic area receives a lot of water. Pubic hair is coarser than head hair and needs more time to soften when carrying out pubic hair removal.
Apply plenty of shaving foam or gel over the area and leave for a few minutes to soften further. Ordinary soap is not suitable as it does not lock in the moisture to the hair the way a shaving preparation cream or gel does.
Experiment with different brands if you find some cause skin irritation. They contain various chemicals and you need to find one that suits you.
Pull the skin straight with your free hand and shave without applying pressure.
Shave upwards against the direction of the hair growth.
Make sure there is shaving foam on the skin each time you make a stroke with the razor.
Shaving bare skin can cause razor burn and can be especially painful in pubic hair removal.
Rinse the razor every couple of strokes as it will clog easily.
Rinse off and see any areas that may have been missed and again apply gel to that area and shave.
To make pubic hair removal less stressful for the skin, massage unscented Vitamin E oil into the pubic area after shaving.
To stop or reduce itching after shaving rub an ice cube over the area.
Alternatively, rub a little baby oil into the pubic area.
If you suffer from itchiness or blood spots, let the hair grow back for a week before shaving again.
Keep the shaven area well moisturized between shaves by using a skin moisturizer or baby lotion. This will reduce the uncomfortable effect the stubble may cause between shaves.
Ingrown hair can be a problem when shaving and it can be particularly uncomfortable when it appears in the pubic area. For full information on how to eliminate and prevent ingrown hairs you may wish to check out the web site at (see resource box below).

Shaving Tips for Men

June 10th, 2021

Shaving tips are easy to find online, but what isn’t easy to find are practical tips for guys that deal with ingrown hairs and razor-burn.

I’ve dealt with both and it made shaving an absolutely dreadful experience.

That is, until I got a bit shaving education, and used the knowledge to not only get a better shave, but to also practically stop any irritation that stemmed from shaving.

5 Shaving Suggestions for Men

The first step is to use a pre-shave oil. Doing so helps prep the skin and provides extra protection against the razor. Think of it as the engine in a car oil; without it, things would run rough.

Once you have you’re a good pre-shave oil, you’ll want to use a high-quality shaving cream. What this will do is help lift the beard for an easy shave.

Next up, make sure you apply the cream with a bager hair brush. Yes, I’m talking about the old school kind that your dad or grandfather used. This is a crucial step as it helps evenly apply the shaving cream, and also helps exfoliate the skin and raise the beard. The raising the beard part is what helps with ingrowns.

Now it’s time to toss out your current razor and go purchase a safety razor. This are single blade razors that are sharp on both sides – think of it as a double sided box cutter. The razors are weighted and become an important aspect in helping you learn how to shave properly, get a close shave, and get rid of ingrowns. I can’t tell you enough how much this helped me.

Finally, you’ve achieved a great shave. Given that you virtually just scraped layers (gross, I know) of your skin off, it’s time to prepare it with an aftershave. We aren’t going for the Home Alone scream, so make sure it doesn’t have alcohol in it – you’ll be sorry if it does. This step is meant to moisturize the skin, but get something quality so you don’t clog your pores.
If you follow to these 5 shaving tips you’ll be on the road to getting a better shave and have less irritated skin. Once you start to get a better shave, you may be able to go back to a razor such as the Fusion. Although, upon doing so make sure you continue to use the shaving techniques learned during your time with the safety razor – they are very important.
