How To Shave Your Pubic Area For Men: 10 Tips You Should Know
Looking for more tips on how to shave your pubic area for men?
Before, everyone would tease you if you are shaving your pubic hair. Today, however, it is an important part of men’s grooming habit. If you’re into serious manscaping, these 10 safety tips should come in handy:
10. Use Hair / Beard Trimmer
First-timers must trim down long pubic hair first. Use either hair or beard trimmer to cut your pubic hair down to ¼. These tools can trim the hair shorter than scissors. Longer hair can easily clog the razor leading to inefficient shaving.
9. Lie Back for Scrotum Shaving
You can easily shave your scrotum when lying down. However, first-timers should do it first in the bathroom due to longer scrotum hair. After which, you can do it while lying down on bed for easier shaving.
8. Learn the Positions
There are 4 best positions for pubic shaving: on the floor, sitting, standing, and lying down. Sitting on the floor position gives you stability and more access to the area. Standing is best under the shower while lying down is best for scrotum shaving. You can also do it under a hot bath for easier trimming due to softer hair.
7. Apply Lather
The pubic area is very sensitive so you need to apply cream prior to shaving. Do not use scented or menthol creams to avoid irritation. Anti-bacterial gel will help you prevent irritation as well. You should also use clear lathers so that you can see your pubic area clearly while shaving.
6. Use 3 to 4 Blade Razors
3 or 4 bladed razors will allow you to shave quickly. You don’t need to shave against the direction of the growth either. Shaving in the opposite direction can lead to razor bumps and ingrown hair.
5. Penis’ Position
Wondering how to shave your pubic area for men perfectly? Do it by pulling your penis towards 3 directions. Pull it downward and shave from top of your penis up to the navel. Hold it to the side and shave inwards to the sides of both penis and scrotum. Hold it upward and shave downwards from penis to lower scrotum.
4. Extend your Skin
You must taut the skin of your pubic area, including the scrotum, for safer and easier shaving. Loose skin and saggy sections can easily get cuts from razors. Stretch the scrotum’s skin and begin shaving from the mid scrotum area to the sides. Do this with extreme care.
3. Rinse with Mild Soap
After shaving, you should use mild soap to rinse your genitals from lather and shaving cream. Strong soap like menthol and highly-scented soap can lead to irritation. Same goes with beauty soap. Look for soap intended for baby’s skin and use it to rinse your genitals after shaving.
2. Pat Dry
Don’t rub your pubic area with towel after shaving. This may cause irritation to the newly shaved genitals. Use softer towels and pat dry your pubic section.
1. Use Antiseptic Cream
First and second time of shaving can easily lead to irritation such as redness and itching. This is very common whenever the hair grows back. Typically, it takes almost a week for the irritation to disappear but using antiseptic cream can remove irritations faster.
Additional tips and warning:
Don’t forget to spend an hour or so for pubic grooming. This is a task you shouldn’t rush because wrong practice may cause irritations. The skin near your genitals is more sensitive than your facial skin. You should be very careful when shaving near or in your pubic area.
Make sure that you won’t be disturbed as well. Most men shave their genitals late at night for privacy. First-timers need more time in the bathroom while others can do it in their room. Regular shaving can only take up 15 – 20 minutes.
