Currently, a high percentage of men and women practice hair removal from their genital areas on a daily basis, many only for hygienic reasons, others for aesthetic reasons and a third group for both reasons.
The methods of doing this are very different, but today I am going to tell you step by step how to do it with the blade.
You will need:
- One blade
- Shaving cream for sensitive skin
- Antiseptic cream or an astringent
- Fragrance-free moisturizer
- Baby powder.
Steps to follow
The first thing you should do is to use blunt scissors to trim the pubic hair to a length of no more than half an inch.
You should take a bath of about 5 minutes with hot water to soften the hair and make it easier to shave. Otherwise, you should place a towel dampened with hot water over the area to be grown and soak the hair for more than 5 minutes.
Apply shaving cream for sensitive skin and preferably one that has moisturizers in the area to be treated to lubricate the hair and allow the blade to glide easily, reducing the risk of rashes, irritation and cuts.
Leave the shaving cream or foam on for at least 1 minute before shaving.
In the area to be grown, stretch the skin tightly so that it becomes flat and smooth so that you cannot cut yourself.
To start the shaving process yourself, first shave the upper part of what is known as the mons pubis (upper part of the vagina). The shave continues in the same direction as the hair down and towards the labia majora.
Then shave both sides (right and left) of your vagina by stretching the skin around the vaginal lips and keep shaving, always in the same direction of hair, until you shave the entire vulva.
If you want to shave more thoroughly, you will have to repeat the previous steps with the difference that you are now doing it from the bottom up, in the opposite direction of the hair.
When the waxing finishes, rinse the area and pat dry with a towel. Then (if this is your first time doing this type of waxing), apply an astringent antiseptic cream that contains salicylic acid or, if not, place witch hazel on the shaved area to prevent ingrown hairs or rashes. Then apply a fragrance-free moisturizer and add a little baby powder to finish.
- It is important that you wear loose underwear after waxing to avoid friction, which can lead to irritation, rashes, and ingrown hairs.
- Use a new blade every time you practice this type of hair removal.
