Our fellow women, we feel your problem because we used to be in your position, too. So, today, let’s dive deep into the easiest and most approachable technique on how to shave your vagina. After reading this article, you don’t need to worry when wearing revealing outfits anymore!
How to Shave Your Vagina Simply and Safely
The vaginal skin is delicate, so you must pay attention to the pre-shaving and post-shaving care to not damage that skin part. Besides, it’s a must to confirm that any ingredients you apply to your vaginal area are benign enough not to get your skin irritated.
Here is what you should prepare to shave your vaginal hair:
- A razor (of course!).
- Exfoliating cream for sensitive skin.
- Shaving cream.
- Warm water.
- Moisturizing cream to soothe the post-shaving skin.
- A dry, smooth towel.
Exfoliate your “private” area
Now that you have already had all the equipment needed, let’s start shaving down the hair.
But wait! You should not jump directly into the part of trimming down the hair, but rather exfoliating your vaginal skin first. By removing the dead skin cells, the skin becomes smoother, thinner, and easier to “peel” off the hair.
Let us guide you on exfoliating the “private” skin area: first, wash the vaginal area to ensure that it is clean, well-maintained, and sterile. Then, apply the exfoliating cream onto that private area, rub it with your fingers or brush slightly. After scrubbing for about 2 to 5 minutes, re-wash the vaginal skin part to remove the cream.
We recommend using warm water to exfoliate your vaginal skin because the heat can slowly enlarge the pores, making shaving easier.
Apply shaving cream
Your skin is clean, smooth, and soft now, so let’s start shaving right away. You must be quite tired of doing pre-shaving for so long, right?
After washing off the exfoliating cream, now it’s time to apply another skin-care product: shaving cream. Many different brands in the market specialize in shaving cream for women, but you can also use men’s shaving products if you don’t have enough time searching for the proper shaving cream. In fact, both types are suitable for the skin.
Additionally, we suggest using the bubbly type of shaving cream because the foam provides chemical interactions that soothes your skin, making shaving easier. Also, please apply as much cream as possible because the more cream, the higher the shaving efficiency.
Shave your vagina in the hair-growth direction
Your vaginal area is full of shaving cream now, so let’s start shaving the hair. Take a sharp razor, place it at the vagina, and move it following the hair-growth direction.
Mildly and moderately, circle the razor to the direction of the hair growth repetitively. Don’t worry that you may cut the vaginal skin because, in fact, you won’t have to pressure the razor that much to be able to cut the hair. The vagina hair is short and soft, so only pressurize the razor slightly, and you can cut the hair effortlessly.
You can follow any techniques and mix the steps you want, but the immovable rule that any guidance will remind you is: cut towards the hair growth direction.
The reason behind this rule is that when shaving, you are just cutting in the middle of the hair, not the root. If you shave the hair towards the same hair-growth direction, then the root won’t be totally removed, and later the hair will grow back normally. Otherwise, if you cut the hair conversely to the growth yield, the root is removed, making feather nags regressed.
Otherwise, cutting the hair in the contradictory ward to hair growth direction will break the hair’s root, meaning there will be a regression in the feather nag. As a result, the regressive nag, when growing back, will multiply the hair density. You can imagine such a tragic scene then, right? that private area will be twice as hairy as normal!
Continue shaving your vaginal fur until all hair is removed. We recommend washing off the cream and applying new cream after 3 to 5 “slices.” It’s better to clean the razor after a few cuts to ensure sterility.
Wash the cream off
After removing all the hair, please wash your vaginal area under fresh tap water and ensure that all shaving cream has disappeared.
Then, cleaning your vaginal part again with sanitizers and soap to sterilize that private area. The sodium in soap will soothe the vaginal skin and cause the shaving to heal faster.
Many people usually ignore the benefits of post-shaving care because they think the skin can heal by itself. However, that belief is totally incorrect.
Scientifically, the skin is fragile and easy to get irritated. After shaving, the surface is now at its delicate peak because, while cutting, you may accidentally make some small cuts without knowing. Given that fact, it’s a must to apply soothing cream to heal the skin in the meantime.
Post-shaving care is simple: apply the moisturizing and soothing cream on the vaginal skin area you have just shaved. There are various products to select – coconut oil, aloe vera oil, peanut oil, tea tree serum, etc. As long as it can supplement the nutrition to the skin and create a layer to prevent dehydration, it is good enough.
Personally, most people choose aloe vera serum because it is cheap, easy to find at any store, skin-friendly, and works well in moisturizing for any skin type.
