It's a struggle, literally a struggle to go ahead and shave the hair on your body. You have to be in different positions, suffer cuts, cry over bikini line shaving every time. No one loves it, but they are obliged to do it anyway, you know nobody likes to see the hair on your body in any way and it definitely is irritating.
Shaving your bikini line sometimes is harder than a mathematics examination as some girls believe it to be. It is so tough to work on it properly and be great.
So, let's see how to shave bikini line properly with proper steps.
A good razor is all that you need at the start. A soothing strip to make your job done is necessary, and you will realize the difference made.
Prepping the area is the next step. Clean the area with warm water for about 10 minutes. This helps so that the razor burns don't hurt you too much. Then pat the area dry to remove excess water. It gets rid of unwanted dead skin cells.
Use enough shaving cream so the area becomes slippy enough. Less cream in the area makes it rough, causing irritation. Use the shaving cream with good ingredients like Shea butter and stuff. So the experience becomes more comfortable.
How you do it is very very important. As it happens when you wax, one should never shave against hair growth because the razor will nick the follicle and leave a red mark. Be gentle while doing it, don't go too hard. Also, remember, as many as the blades in your shave, the lesser the work.
Post shave rinse off immediately applying cold water for about 10 minutes. Apply anti-redness serum just for surety that the area doesn't become red. If it causes irritation, use more creams to make it feel better. Never let the redness or irritation stay for a long period.
This is necessary for optimum skin care. Apply this to lock the moisture and make the skin part better and also avoiding over drying.
Cleanliness is of utmost importance. One razor can be used twice or thrice in the least and you can't use the dirty one so make sure you clean it properly every time after use.
