How to shave your pubic hair
Tips for shaving pubic hair
Grooming one's pubic hair involves a sensitive area; you will need a quality shave, including proper regimen and tools.
Shaving your pubic hair
Armed with the right tools, like the All Purpose Gillette Styler: Trimmer, Shaver & Edger and Gillette BODY, shaving your pubic hair is pretty simple. Follow these steps to get great results, every time
STEP 1: Select a fixed comb length
The right comb length on your body hair trimmer can help you tame full, natural growth that hasn’t been touched by a razor for a while – or ever. The All Purpose Gillette Styler comes with three comb attachments (2mm, 4mm, 6mm) for you to choose from.
STEP 2: Trim
Trim your pubic hair. Trimming the hair before shaving can help prevent clogged blades.
STEP 3: Shower
The water will help soften your pubic hair (which can be wiry) and make it easier for the razor to glide over your skin. Gillette Styler is waterproof so you can trim in the shower.
STEP 4: Lather up with shave gel
A good lather helps to hydrate hairs, enhance razor glide, and protect your skin while you shave your pubic area.
STEP 5: Check for dull blades
Blade feeling dull or lubrication strips looking faded? It may be time for you to swap your blade attachment before you begin.
STEP 6: Shave with light, gentle strokes
Shave with light, gentle strokes, rinsing often, and with the skin pulled taut. Gillette BODY is a good choice for shaving sensitive skin such as the pubic area because it features a rounded head with 3 lubrication strips.
STEP 7: Rinse your blades often
Run the blades gently under the tap every few strokes, both the back and front sides of the blades, and then gently shake excess water off. Do not tap your razor against the sink or wipe against a towel; these habits can reduce the life of the razor by affecting the intricate design of the blade components. Rinsing the blades under running water helps to remove built-up shaving gel, hair, and dead skin.
STEP 8: Pull your skin taut
Create an even surface by pulling your groin skin taut with one hand and guiding your razor with the other.
STEP 9: Re-apply shave gel as needed
You may find that you need to shave over the same spot in different directions to get a smooth shave. In order to help prevent shaving rash in your pubic area, ensure that you reapply shave gel before you re-stroke.
STEP 10: Rinse, dry and moisturise
Moisturising after shaving your pubic area is critical – it helps soothe the skin.
