Vaginal hair removal can cause problems and inconvenience so you need to take precautions and carefully consider your approach. Obviously the area around the vagina needs to be treated with some degree of sensitivity and small errors have the potential to lead to reasonably significant issues. So make sure that you remove unwanted hair in a way that avoids potential for cuts and the bleeding that can sometimes follow.
It is relatively common for women to injure themselves accidentally when shaving around the vagina. Often problems start with the positioning of the body or even the location where the process is attempted. While some women like to sit on the toilet, others might try leaning over the bath or shower. The important thing to remember is to trim the relevant area prior to attempting any vaginal hair removal. There are different techniques or appliances that can be used for this including trimmers and scissors. Doing this trimming first will help to stop hair from sticking to your razor.
Keeping the area moist prior to shaving is also an important tip to keep in mind. This is because of the fact that dead cells of skin sit over areas of dry skin and this leads to the structure of your hairs being destroyed when you shave. This can then lead to potential irritations developing.
So to get underway with your vaginal hair removal, here are a few suggestions:
- Have a shower
- Apply some type of moisturizer to the subject area – this should assist with opening up the skin pores.
- After waiting a few minutes, simply begin shaving.
- Ensure that you are using a good quality razor.
- Try to use a new blade for your razor as often as possible.
- You should try to shave in the direction that the hair is growing.
- Begin the shaving from the back of the vaginal area.
- Then shave the sides next before then concentrating towards the front.
- Try not to use too much pressure with your shaving – you want the razor strokes to be smooth and consistent.
- Try to avoid over-shaving or concentrating strokes on a particular area.
- When you are finished, just wash the area with some cold water.
Hopefully the above information will help you to avoid some of the potential problems that can naturally occur as part of any vaginal hair removal.
