Removing pubic hair has become a habit for most women, as we like our skin to be soft and fur-free.
But you will be surprised to know that removing pubic hair has zero health benefits.
In fact, pubic hair is present for a reason, to protect our genitals from any infection or injury. Nevertheless, what matters the most is our own personal preferences.
Many of us might like the hair to be trimmed while some of us might like the hair to be completely removed. At the end of the day, it is totally your decision, if you want to remove the bush or not.
Now that you have taken a decision to remove your pubic hair, I would like to list some of the best as well as protective ways to do the same.
1. Shaving For Pubic Hair Removal
Even though the “lockdowns” due to the COVID-19 are lifted, many of us still fear the idea of visiting the salons Shaving is one of the classics and a cost-effective method to remove pubic hair by yourself at home.
For people like us, shaving is the safest option as we can do it easily by ourselves at our home.
Razors are readily available at any time and give a close shave which results in smoother skin underneath. Shaving is suitable for all skin types and gives us a sleek hairless look.
Also, please follow these shaving tips for better results;
- Select a razor with a very sharp blade.
- You should always use a single stroke in the direction of the hair growth.
- Always sterilize use razor before use.
- Wet your bikini line in a warm shower and use a shaving gel or oil before shaving as this results in ultra-soft skin.
- Do not forget to rinse your razor after every stroke.
- When you finish shaving, make sure to apply a moisturizer to avoid any irritation or burns.
Depending on your skin, the results of shaving can last up to three days. So, if you are the one who loves fuss-free and super-fast solutions to remove your hair down-there,
Take out your razor, go into a warm shower and start shaving!
2.Trimming For Pubic Hair Removal
If you do not want to remove your bikini hair completely, then trimming is your best choice. Trimming is painless, has no side effects, and a quick way to cut down the extra grown hairs.
Groom your pubic hair with a clean and sharp scissor, and you are ready to go.
Choose a well-lighted washroom for your trimming sessions and be in a seated position for comfortable grooming. Also be prepared for regular trimming sessions, as the hair will grow back pretty soon.
3. Waxing For Pubic Hair Removal
Ouch! Be prepared to say before you sit for ‘Brazilian waxing’. Waxing is a painful method and needs professionals to do the procedure.
If you have not done it already, do a trial for your legs before doing the bikini wax. This will ensure that you are mentally prepared for the worst. If you are the one who can bear the pain, then you gain an advantage, because the effects of waxing can last between four weeks and six weeks.
If you do not want to visit a salon during this pandemic, you can get wax strips from the market. There are two types: soft wax which is used on large areas like legs and arms; hard wax for small patches of hair in the bikini or armpit.
4. Epilation For Pubic Hair Removal
We all would have threaded or tweezed our eyebrows. Epilation is the same. Epilators grab multiple hairs and pull them all out at once.
Since the hairs are plucked out including their roots, the results will last for a longer time. This method stings and feels painful, but once you become used to the sensation you will feel less pain.
For epilators to work well the hair should be at least 0.5 mm in length.
Wash the bikini area thoroughly and adjust the speed settings to low on your epilator before you start.
Gently epilate the area against the direction of the hair growth such that all the hair can be plucked properly.
5. Depilatory creams For Pubic Hair Removal
I always avoided the idea of depilatory creams due to their strong smell and irritation on my skin.
But nowadays, depilatory creams have improved a lot with less smell and more effectiveness. This is a completely pain-free method and girls who are afraid of the agony that comes along with waxing or epilation chooses these creams.
Simply apply the cream on your bikini line, ensure every strand of hair is covered, and leave it for ten to twenty minutes (See the instructions on the pack for exact time).
Once the time is up, take up the plastic tool that comes with the pack, scrape away the hair and wash your skin thoroughly in the shower.
If you are not sure, whether a cream is safe for you, just do a patch test and confirm yourself before proceeding to the sensitive areas.
Whatever method you choose, always take it slow as you are tending to the most sensitive area in your body.
Execute the method in a completely safe environment and consult a dermatologist if you feel any itching or redness around your genital area.
Enjoy your hairless look and flaunt in your bikini!
