How to Shave Genitals
The best prevention is not to shave the pubic area… or shave less often.
If you must shave… do it properly! Learn how to shave genitals below:
If you’re going to do a good job, you need to have the right tool.
You can hammer a screw in, however it’s more effective and easier if you use a screwdriver. Same could be said of what you’re using to shave. Many guys make the mistake of using their wet-shave facial shaver. Why one would think it’s a good idea to take 3 to 5 blades to his genitals, with sensitive skin that’s all bunched up is beyond me? Don’t they know their future generation depends on it? Well, we hope they won’t injure themselves that bad.
Electric Shavers are the way to go! But you probably don’t want to rub your balls over your really nice $300 electric shaver. Plus, it’s not designed for sensitive skin. That’s why we developed “Personal Shavers” specifically made for pubic hair removal. We know well, “you gotta have the right tool for the job”! The eRazor Fuzion is the first Triple-blade, Rotary Pubic Shaver with a Built-in Trimmer. Available for purchase at the low price of $24.88.
Find a comfortable place to shave:
Depending of your level of detail, you want to choose a comfortable place to shave your genitals. If you plan of sculpting a masterpiece, you may wanna have a sit.
Keep in mind, if this is your first time, you’re going to leave quite a bit of a mess. Be sure to choose an area that can easily be cleaned up.
And most importunity, you want to make sure your in a private place where you won’t be distracted. Or being inconsiderate of other that may need to use the restroom.
Soften your pubic hair before trimming:
Many people are allergic to commercial shaving creams in this sensitive area. We recommend our SINsational Shaving and Intimacy Lube, as it’s a silicon-based solution. It’s alway good to perform a “patch test” with any new product.
Contrary to common belief, do not try to soften the hair by soaking in warm water. The human skin is rather absorbent, so you’ll also soften your skin and “fluff-en” up; therefor increasing the chance of ingrown hairs.
Trim down your pubic hair:
Set your eRazor Fuzion to the TRIMMER-MODE so you can trim down your Pubic Hair. Pull the hair away from your body and graze over with the trimmer; many like to sculpt with a comb.
Once you’ve trimmed your pubic hair to the desired length, you can begin what the ladies call… “trimming your bikini line”. Again, make sure you hold the skin taut. Take the trimmer along your desired path.
Shave down to stubble:
Once you’ve defined the line, you can go back through and trim back the remainder of the hair back along the lines. You wouldn’t want to go through all this effort and not finish off with a good job, would you?
Stretch your skin with one hand. With the trimmer, shave against the direction of the hair growth down to stubble. Use two or three short strokes to lessen irritation. This technique reduces ingrown hairs because you’re not shaving the hair too short.
Buff to a smooth finish:
For this we recommend re-appling a light coat of our Silicon Lube. Set your eRazor Fuzion to the SHAVER-MODE and buff to a smooth finish. Shave once a week… as shaving more often can leave the hair too short… making it easier an ingrown pubic hair to develop.
If you shave in the same manner every time, you can train the hair to grow straighter. This is a benefit to shaving the same way each time. This is crucial for the African American population who are highly prone to ingrown hairs.
Wash off your pubic hair and exfoliate your skin:
Removing the dead skin cells will release any hairs that may have become trapped in the hair follicle. Use a loofa or synthetic sponge to lightly scrub the pubic area. There are some good exfoliation products for your pubic area available at the local drug store.
The best products contain either salicylic or glycolic acids. It’s best to do a “patch test”, as I mentioned before, of the product on your forearm. This way you can check for any allergic reaction.
Pat-down dry your genitals:
This is another common mistakes any guys makes, even on their face. Once you have gone through and removed the hair to baby soft skin, the follicle still remains slightly under the skin. If you reposition the follicle to another direction, by stretching the skin, it will then start to grow into the skin.
We can’t even begin to stress enough to NOT stretch your skin more than it naturally does. This also goes for wearing tightly fit underwear. If the skin can’t shed, it begins to cover up the follicle and resulting in ingrown hairs.
Moisturize your genital area:
If you’re prone to itching after you shave… use witch hazel. Witch hazel will relieve the itching and irritation caused by shaving. A 99% pure Aloe Vera or use of Epicuren’s Protein Mist Enzyme Toner. It’s an enzyme protein toner that restores the skin’s pH while hydrating and refreshing the skin; it’s the perfect aftershave.
Maintenance Of Pubic Area
Your facial shaver was not designed to shave your body. Additionally, your body is covered by clothes, unlike your face. By factoring these things in, you understand one must use a different type of shaver that’s designed to leave your skin smooth, yet considers the condition of the area. Now that you’re clean shaven, here are some pitfalls to avoid:
Clothing: Wear loose fitting under garments and avoid tight fitting pants. The constant abrasion and chafing can cause the short hairs into the hair follicle… causing an ingrown pubic hair.
Depilatories: This is an option to eliminate the need for regular shaving… however we don’t recommend it as it can be harmful to the skin. Depilatories work by dissolving the protein in the hair, causing the hair to disintegrate, then just wipe it away.
Avoid Waxing the Pubic Area: Even if you’re tough to use this method of hair removal… we wouldn’t recommend it. It’s very easy to have the hairs break off below the skin… thereby causing an ingrown pubic hair. I can’t even imagine using waxing on the testicles.
