Shaving Pubic Hair
Men can choose to shave their pubic hair for lots of different reasons. Some do it to feel more comfortable, while others shave for aesthetic reasons, or simply because their partner prefers them to.
Some guys just like to shave specific areas or any particularly long hairs that are in danger of approaching their thighs. Others completely remove all of their hair down there.
Whatever manscaping style you decide to go for, here’s how to shave your pubic area for the smoothest, most comfortable finish:
Shaving your Pubic Hair
Step 1: Start with a Bath or Shower
Pubic hair is more wiry than other body hair, so you’ll need to shower or bathe for around five minutes to soften it as much as possible before you tackle it. Softening your pubic hair will reduce the chance of nicks and pulls in this extremely sensitive area.
Showering also cleanses the skin before a razor makes contact. Cleaning both your skin and your shaving tools helps to prevent folliculitis – which can be common – and is caused by bacteria or fungi getting into the hair gland, leading bumps to appear on the skin.
Step 2: How to Trim Your Pubes
Start by trimming your pubic hair using a razor with a fixed comb length – our Gillette All Purpose Styler would be a good choice. Using a trimmer means you’ll be able to access hard-to-reach areas without having to contort yourself into uncomfortable positions!
When looking to trim pubic hair, don’t approach it in the same way you would when dealing with the hair on your head. It might seem like a smaller job, but it requires just as much attention.
