Here are some (possibly) useful tips from our Tropika Club ladies.
Always shave with care
When you are shaving your pubic hair, you definitely have to keep a few tips in mind. Follow our step-by-step recommendations. Before you proceed to any step, you must get a good bikini razor that is meant for ladies. Please do not use a men’s shaver or razor as it is designed for men’s beard, which comprises of thicker hair. Also get yourself a suitable pair of trimming scissors, fragrance-free shaving cream & non-scented moisturiser to prevent irritation for the next couple of days.
Try not to get cheap razor, and avoid a razor with too many blades. This is because that can be too harsh on your vulva, especially if you shave daily or weekly.
Trim your Pubic Hair
If it is your first time or you have not shaved for quite some time, it might be easier and also safer if you trim your hair with scissors first. This will shorten the hairs around that area for a better and safer (and smoother) shave. If you’ve got a long, thick thatch going on, cut the hair to about a quarter inch. This step helps you avoid razor or trimmer clog. You’ll also gain a better view of your skin and direction of hair growth, which will help prevent accidents.
Exfoliate the Skin
To exfoliate the bikini area, scoop a bit of your homemade scrub out of the container into your hands. Use your hands or a soft washcloth to gently scrub along your bikini line and then let the mixture sit on your skin for 3 to 4 minutes. Rinse well before you start to shave.
Apply Shaving cream
Apply a thin layer to the area that needs to be shaved. Also, try not to use any shaving cream with fragrance as it can irritate the delicate skin.
Shave in the direction of hair growth
People always have different thoughts on shaving either along the grain or against the grain. Shaving in the right direction is very important to prevent the occurrence of any ingrown hairs that might not only cause discomfort but may also be very unsightly. The correct way is you have to pull the skin taut and shave in the direction of your hair growth; and keep the blade downward without adding too much of a pressure.
Once you’re finished shaving, rinse off your bikini line, ideally with cool water, or you can use a cold wash cloth and press it to your skin for a minute or two, then pat your skin dry. Make sure to also clean off your razor and set it aside to dry.
Moisturise to avoid over-drying
Apply some non-scented moisturiser to avoid over-drying which leads to further irritation. If you are about to get dressed and go out, you can also put on some powder to prevent rubbing or chaffing.Apply an unscented, alcohol-free moisturiser to both sides of the bikini line to lock in the moisture and avoid over-drying, which leads to further irritation
The embarrassing part of hair removal is after a couple of days, your hairs start to grow again. You may experience some itching once new hairs begin to emerge from the follicles. When this happens,you can use moisturiser or aloe vera help to calm the irritated skin.
