How To Shave Bikini Line

Before you attempt to shave the bikini area, it is important to remember that the skin around your bikini line is much more sensitive than anywhere else you use a womens razor. The enemies of smooth skin are razor bumps, ingrown hair and unnecessary redness. These are the usual occurrences for most women when we attempt to shave this delicate area. After many years of refusing to have my bikini line waxed (due to the pain of the stripping and the ingrown hairs) I have become quite the pro at shaving my sensitive area especially around the bikini line.

Prep Your Skin

Before you even pick up a bikini razor it is a smart idea to trim with a pair of scissors or even better with the Gillette Venus Bikini Kit (as shown below). Trim the hair down to 1/4″ or as small as you can get. Then exfoliate the area with a gentle facial exfoliator. If you do this step correct, you are sure to never see any ingrown hairs.

Shaving Tip #2

Always Use a Good Womens Razors

Never skimp on your razor. Women are guilty of just picking up their guys razor and attempting to get a good shave. This is a delicate area and you never want a nick or a cut here. Disposable and cheap razors are definitely what you want to stay away from. My pick for the best womens razor is the Gillette Venus Embrace (included in the Bikini Kit or you can purchase separate Venus Breeze Razor.

Hold skin taut so that it’s level. First shave in the direction of hair growth to shorten, then against the grain for extra closeness. Rinse the area in cool water to close pores. How much or how little you shave is up to you. It’s a good idea to put your bikini bottom on, to see if you need to take away more. Remember it is always a good idea to wait 24 hours before going into the sun to make sure that you protect the sensitive skin

Shaving Tip #3

Treat Your Skin

Now that you have finished the shave and your bikini line is hair free you want to make sure that the skin does not retaliate with redness or any bumps that may lead to ingrown hairs. So it’s a good time to pamper the area. A little baby powder will do the trick as it will prevent moisture and friction from irritating the skin. If you are smart you will go for the Venus Bikini Kit which includes the trimmer, the razor and the added bonus of Olay® Bikini Lotion.

Personally I think you can never take enough precautions with such delicate skin. So not only do I make sure to use a good witch hazel (toner) but I always have some baby powder ready to pamper the area. All these tips are great but remember you MUST use a great womens razor one better is that you do not use the same razor for your legs that you use for the bikini line.

Have Fun

Remember, bikini shaving and trimming isn’t just important for bikini season, but year-round! Having smooth skin helps you feel sexy and when you feel good, you’re more confident. No more ingrown hair and the pain that goes along with it.

Now that you feel confident and sexy, you can go have FUN!

Shaving Gels

Try a transparent shaving gel. They allow you to see clearly where you're going. Gillete makes a great gel that I adore.Try using the Satin Care Skin Gel. All you need to do is Gently rub the shave gel over your wet skin, in seconds it will produce a rich lather for a smooth shave

Beauty Tips for

Smooth Bikini Line

* Do not try to use a bikini razor daily, as the skin in this area is sensitive so it needs a few days in between shaves.

* When shaving your bikini area, wait 24 hours before sun exposure to protect the sensitive skin

* Always go for quality like Gillette Womens Razors, not the best bargain — you’ll pay for using cheap razors with razor burn, irritation, soreness and nicks.

* Rinse your Venus razor regularly as you shave to remove hair build-up.

* Smooth skin in summer is a must! Remember to use a SPF moisturizer often as it will keep your skin glowing all summer long
