Tips for a smooth, painless hair removal
Updated: Mar 2, 2022
There are many ways to remove unwanted hairs from the face and body.
Some of the popular methods include shaving, waxing, threading, tweezing, and going for Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment.
Shaving is one of the most common method. However it may lead to skin inflammation or irritation such as red dots or razor burn if not done properly.
Vulvar skin is much thinner and more sensitive than skin on our face.
Here's some tips for a better hair removal experience for your intimate areas:
1. Pre-trim your pubic hair. Aim for hair that is shorter than 0,6 cm.
2. Always shave in the shower. Rinse with warm water first to open up the pores, then carefully cleanse the entire intimate area with our Cleansing + Moisturizing Oil to remove bacteria.
3. Apply our Shaving Oil before stretching the skin to have a closer shave.
Our luxurious oil helps to hydrates the skin and helps prevent irritations and razor cuts, for an extra soft and smooth shave. The essential oils from green mint and ylang ylang leave your skin cool and refreshed.
With a good and sharp razor, it is also possible to shave across the grain since you get a much closer shave. For those with very coarse hair or for those with sensitive skin, shaving with the grain is more gentle.
Do not over-shave to avoid the appearance of red dots.
4. Rinse off well, with cold water so that the pores close.
5. After shaving, remember to keep your razor dry and clean.
You can apply a layer of Lip Balm to soothe, moisturize and protect the intimate skin.
There are many types of shaving products that help to improve the shaving experience. Shaving gel is good for those who are maintaining a shape to their facial hair and need a guide which can be built with the lather. However, the gel tend to clog up the razor.
Shaving cream or foam is one of the most commonly used however it can get a little messy due to the thick lather.
Shaving oil may be a little more pricey but they have existed for much longer and usually feature a more natural formula. It is recommend for those with naturally dry skin should opt for shaving oil. This is because when we shave, we lose natural oils from our skin and the shaving oil will help to replace them as soon as it is applied.
When choosing the product for your shaving routine, you should consider your skin type and the frequency of your shave to determine which product would elevate your routine and reduce any irritations.
