The art of shaving your bikini line: Dr’s 5 pro tips

Most hair removal techniques are a trauma for the skin. Based on our clinical experience, we know that bikini area shaving causes the most irritation. Not only is that skin the most sensitive skin on our bodies, but the bikini area is one of the most irritation-prone areas due to external factors outside of shaving. The skin curves and folds when sitting, walking, general movement and more. Additionally, it usually rubs against tight underwear and clothing during any movement which can cause chafing and further irritation. Providing pre-shave care and post-shave aftercare is key for bikini hair removal. 

Our top tips include: 

1. Use proper products specifically formulated for shaving: 

We know many people may use their body wash, conditioners, etc. but those may cause more irritation on already sensitive bikini area as they often contain harsh ingredients. 

2. Use a new men's razor: 

The blades are sharper, they usually have five blades and provide a sharp cut on the hair so it can grow back without becoming ingrown. If the cut is dull, the probability of ingrown hair is higher. A good razor can also help stop post-shave irritation like razor burn. 

3. Change razors or razor blades often:

The newer blades, the better the shave.

4. If you are prone to ingrown hair, start shaving with the grain:

This way of shaving cuts the hair in an angle that helps the hair to grow out easily instead of getting stuck under the skin and creating ingrown hair. Finish off by shaving only once with the grain

5. Aftercare post shaving is key! 

It is important to give the skin a product with moisturizing, calming and antiinflammatory properties. Apply directly after shaving, but also continue for at least 5 days. 

We developed our Intimate Shaving Trio to not only shave but also to prepare and take care of the skin post-shave.
