As a busy mom, you may not want to put yourself through the time, expense, embarrassment or potential pain associated with hiring a salon esthetician to wax your pubic hair. However, you and perhaps your partner would feel much sexier if you had less pubic hair or none at all. Shaving is a viable option for women, but it needs to be done properly to avoid potential hassles, such as ingrown hairs, according to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.
Once you start shaving your pubic hair, you must do so regularly and, possibly, every day, according to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. Potential problems, such as ingrown hairs, bumps and even infections, can be avoided by regular and careful shaving.
Use New Razors
Using new razors is essential when shaving pubic hair, according to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. You may also want to buy an especially nice razor to treat your feminine areas with the tender loving care they deserve.
Consider Using Scissors
A common misconception is that shaving the pubic area always causes ingrown hairs, according to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. This is not true and you can reduce the risk and hassle associated with shaving pubic hair regularly by incorporating scissors into the routine. Using new, clean scissors designed for hair trimming, simply and carefully clip as much public hair and possibly before you pull out the actual shaving implements.
Aloe Vera, Creams, Conditioners
You should use a shaving cream before removing pubic hair and aloe vera after shaving, according to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. Some women also find it helpful to use a gentle hair conditioner on their pubic hair before proceeding with their pubic hair shaving mission. No matter what product you decide to bring into the bathtub for your shaving adventure, be sure not to use any men’s products that include aftershave; these can cause some seriously stinging side effects.
A Nice Hot Soak in the Tub
Too many moms feel they can’t make the time to enjoy a nice, hot soak in the bathtub. However, if you take even three minutes to do this before shaving your pubic hair, you can enjoy a number of potential benefits beyond a little bit of relaxation, according to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. Women who soak in hot bathtub or shower water before shaving off their pubic hair not only enjoy a closer shave, but they also usually reduce their risk of pimples, bumps and ingrown hairs.
