The Ultimate Manscaping Guide

Tips For Body Grooming

No matter what you call your body shaving routine – grooming, ritual, manscaping – technique and regimen matter. And grooming your chest, underarms and pubic area successfully is based on good technique as much as using the right tools.

Body Grooming Tutorial

Armed with the right tools, like the All Purpose Gillette STYLER, grooming your body hair is pretty simple. Follow these steps to get great results, every time:

Gillette Styler - choosing a comb length

Step 1: Select a Fixed Comb Length

The right comb length on your body hair trimmer can help you tame full, natural growth that hasn’t been touched by a razor for a while – or ever. The All Purpose Gillette STYLER comes with three comb attachments (2mm, 4mm, 6mm) for you to choose from.

Gillette Styler - Trimming Body Hair

Step 2: Trim

Trim your body hair. Trimming the hair before shaving can help prevent clogged blades.

Gillette Styler Shower

Step 3: Shower

The water will help soften your body hair (which can be wiry) and make it easier for the razor to glide over your skin. Gillette STYLER is waterproof so you can trim in the shower.

Showering with shave gel

Step 4: Lather Up with Shave Gel

A good lather helps to hydrate hairs, enhance razor glide, and protect your skin while you shave your body.

Dull Blades

Step 5: Check for Dull Blades

Blade feeling dull or lubrication strips looking faded? It may be time for you to swap your blade attachment before you begin.

Body Shaving

Step 6: Shave with Light, Gentle Strokes

Attach a Fusion5™ blade to your STYLER. Shave with light, gentle strokes, rinsing often, and with the skin pulled taut.

Rinsing Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler

Step 7: Rinse Your Blades Often

Run the blades gently under the tap every few strokes, both the back and front sides of the blades, and then gently shake excess water off. Do not tap your razor against the sink or wipe against a towel; these habits can reduce the life of the razor by affecting the intricate design of the blade components. Rinsing the blades under running water helps to remove built-up shaving gel, hair, and dead skin.

Reapplying shave gel

Step 8: Re-apply Shave Gel As Needed

You may find that you need to shave over the same spot in different directions to get a smooth shave. In order to help prevent shaving rash on your body, ensure that you reapply shave gel before you re-stroke.

Rinse, dry and moisturisers

Step 9: Rinse, Dry, and Moisturise

Moisturising after shaving your body is critical – it helps soothe the skin.
