How to Shave Your Pubic Hair

Tips For Shaving Pubic Hair

Grooming one’s pubic hair involves a sensitive area; you will need a quality shave, including a proper regimen and tools…

Shaving your Pubic Hair

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

Choosing the Gillette Styler 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.

Step 2: Trim your pubic hair

If your pubic hair has been unattended for a while, the first thing you should do is trim, so it’s around a quarter of an inch in length at most. You should do this for two reasons: One, to prevent razor blades or trimmers from clogging. And two, to help prevent accidents, with longer un-trimmed hairs obstructing what should be a smooth shaving motion.

Step 3: Shower

Pubic hair is wiry, which is harder for razors to glide over. That’s why you should shower or bathe for around five minutes in order to soften it. This 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, is and caused by bacteria or fungi getting into the hair gland, leading bumps to appear on the skin. Gillette STYLER is waterproof so you can trim in the shower.

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 pubic area.

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.

Step 6: Shave with Light, Gentle Strokes

Take care of your skin and hair by shaving with light, gentle strokes, while rinsing regularly and by making sure the skin is taut at all times a razor or trimmer is in contact with it. This ensures a smooth shave, and helps avoid potential cuts, which could be uncomfortable and lead to infection. A Fusion5™ blade, attached to your STYLER, is ideal for a shave you’ll hardly feel.

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.

Step 8: Pull Your Skin Taut

Create an even surface by pulling your groin skin taut with one hand and guiding your razor with the other.

Step 9: 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 in your pubic area, ensure that you reapply shave gel before you re-stroke.

Rinse, dry and moisturise

Step 10: Rinse, Dry and Moisturise

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