When shaving your bikini area, there are a lot of options from which to choose. So, which do you pick? We’ve gathered together a comprehensive list of all the ways you can remove pubic hair. The best way to get rid of pubic hair is whatever hair-removal method works best for you.
Trimming Your Pubic Hair
If you choose to shave your bikini area, you might need to trim before you start. Hair in your bikini zone can be longer and get stuck between your razor blades – ouch! While you can use scissors and battery-operated devices, we recommend using a tool made specifically for this purpose, like the Braun Silk-épil bikini styler. It’s designed just for bikini hair removal, and it’s great for getting bikini-beautiful without nicks or cuts. After trimming, grab your razor to finish the job!
Shaving Your Bikini Area
Many women opt for a razor when seeking pubic hair removal. Simply use the same razor you use for shaving your arms and legs, making sure to clean the razor well before beginning and using fresh blades to ensure you get as close a shave as possible. To shave your bikini area without bumps afterward, keep your skin hydrated and protected by using a shave gel and exfoliating before the razor touches skin. The skin in your bikini area is more sensitive than in other places, and there are a lot of curves to look out for. We recommend using a razor like the Venus Swirl to shave your more delicate parts. It’s designed with FLEXIBALLTM technology to contour to tricky areas, like the bikini zone.
Waxing Your Lady Parts
Just like with other areas of your body, waxing is an option to remove unwanted hair. You can have this done by a professional or do it at home. When waxing, hot wax is applied to the skin. Strips of cloth are placed on top, and unwanted hairs are removed by pulling off the strips of cloth. It’s a relatively simple process, but it can be messy and painful, especially when done in more delicate areas or if you have sensitive skin. If you choose to do it yourself, make sure to read all instructions in your waxing kit – and maybe ask a close friend to help you out.
Epilating Down Under
Epilating is a process by which a handheld device is used to mechanically pluck hairs from the body. It’s easier to use than waxing and lasts longer than shaving since it removes hairs from the root. You can use an epilator on your bikini line, but be careful. Since skin is sensitive down under, make sure to pull skin tight and take it slow. The first time you epilate can be pretty painful, but it will get better the more you do it as there will be fewer hairs to pull and your skin will get used to the process.
Using Permanent Hair Removal
Tired of shaving or waxing your bikini line? For a more permanent solution, you can try laser hair removal, also called intense pulsed light (IPL), which can be done by a professional at a salon or by yourself at home. While results can last a very long time – much longer than after waxing or shaving – professional services can get pretty costly depending on how often you need the service and the hair can grow back eventually. You can use permanent hair removal methods on any part of your body, including your pubic area. For permanent hair removal at home, we recommend the Venus Silk-expert IPL. It’s a groundbreaking system that reduces hair permanently in as little as four treatments.
Now you know all the ways you can get rid of your pubic hair. From shaving to laser hair removal, there are a lot of options from which to choose. Want more info? You can learn even more about bikini hair removal here.
