Is there a way to safely remove the hair?
There are some things you can do to reduce your risk of an injury or infection during and after grooming your pubes.
Try the following:
Wash yourself beforehand:
Cleaning your skin before you get to trimming or shaving will help prevent the transmission of bacteria.
Disinfect your razor blade or scissors and change blades often:
Make sure all of the tools you need for the job are disinfected. Change razor blades on a regular basis, and avoid using the scissors you use to trim for other things.
Use a handheld mirror:
Make sure you can see what you’re doing, and go slowly.
Keep skin moist and lathered:
If you’re shaving, your skin should be wet. Use soap suds or shaving gel to keep the area lubricated.
Proceed in the direction of your hair growth:
For smoother results and less irritation, trim or shave your hair in the same direction it grows in.
Moisturizing after your shave or wax can help soothe irritated skin. Use a natural oil or lotion to prevent skin from drying out.
Avoid tight clothes for a few days after:
When your underwear is too close to your skin, it can worsen irritation. If you can, opt for loose underwear after a fresh shave.
Use a gentle loofah or scrub to remove dead skin.
Visiting a professional to have your pubic hair removed isn’t inherently safer than doing it yourself, provided you know what you’re doing.
However, waxing is probably best done by a professional since h0t wax can cause burns.
If you go au natural, how should you keep the area clean?
Keeping your bush clean is easy. You should:
Wash with warm, soapy water when you take a shower.
Avoid using scented products to clean your pubic area, as they can lead to a pH imbalance.
Wipe after you use the toilet from front to back.
Use a damp towel or tissue to clean your pubic area between baths or showers.
Always dry your pubic hair after cleaning.
