Ultimate Guide To Shaving Your Bikini Line
Because the wrong way ends up in a really pissed off vajay...
We can all admit that shaving is the number one reason we can’t deal with summer. Sure, we love the sunny days but the whole body hair upkeep is a real drag.
If you’re into a hairless bod then tackling your pits, legs and bikini line can require a lot of work and when it’s not done right, those ingrown hairs will pop up to ruin your day. And if waxing isn’t your bag, then we’ve got all the tips to shave your vajay without making it super angry.
But first, you need to see these guys trying mascara because it's good for your soul...
Get a good razor
Invest in a good quality razor to avoid irritation to your skin and stay away from the cheap plastic-ones. Your vag (and the environment) will thank you for it.
Soften your follicles
We’re assuming most people get their vajay shave on in the shower and it’s tempting to just get it over with as soon as you step in. But leaving the warm water to soften the follicles will actually lower the skin irritation from your razor.
The best way to stave off those annoying AF ingrown hairs is to soften the skin by exfoliating the area before you shave. Go for a medium strength exfoliant so it’s not too rough on your skin.
Use shaving gel
It’s easy just to grab the shower gel but that shiz isn’t going to create the same slippery effect of the proper stuff. Look for ingredients like shea butter and coconut oil to provide a good buffer between your skin and the razor. If you’re totally stuck then use hair conditioner at a push.
Stay away from the dry shave
We get it, it’s so much quicker to take the razor to your dry skin when you’re in a rush but this is the fastest way to irritate your vagine. Be kind to her, she serves you well.
Shave in one direction
If you’re pulling your razor in different directions across your skin, then you’re basically asking for cuts and ingrown hairs. Shave with the hair growth rather than against it to avoid irritation.
Clean your razor
After use, wash it in warm water and soap or sanitiser and if it looks like it’s been used more than it should have been then replace is ASAP. Store it away from water (ie the shower) so it doesn’t pick up extra bacteria that can lead to ingrowns.
Keep it moisturised
Grab an unscented, alcohol free moisturiser to slap on when you’re done. This avoids your skin getting dry after you’ve shaved and wards off redness. Look for products with soothing ingredients like aloe vera or jojoba oil.
