Taking care of your hair down there can be intimidating to some. There are so many different methods of hair removal they can easily get confusing. There is nothing wrong with pubic hair and it is totally natural. The good news is if you don’t want to remove it, you don’t have to. While some people like to go natural, others prefer to keep it trimmed or bare below the belt. Let’s review different types of grooming methods you can use on your nether region.
Shaving is the most popular way to get rid of unwanted hair. If you choose to shave, make sure to use a razor that is clean and sharp. Avoid razor burn and irritation by using shaving cream and moisturizing afterward. Unfortunately, while shaving is usually painless and easy it does not tend to last very long.
Waxing the pubic region can be painful. If you aren’t confident about waxing you should see a professional. There are salons and waxing facilities that have people who are trained on how to wax the pubic area. This may sound scary but having an experienced professional help you through the process will make you more comfortable. If you try it and cannot tolerate the process there is no shame in stopping.
There are hair removal creams for sale on the market but be careful when choosing one. Make sure that it is safe to use on pubic hair. These creams use chemicals to dissolve the hair. You must follow the directions very carefully. It is best to try this out on a small area of skin first to see how your skin is going to react. These creams are only meant for external use and you have to be cautious when using them.
An epilator is not as well-known as shaving or waxing. It is a tool that pulls out hair. Some people say it is painful but you get used to it while others cannot tolerate it. As with all the other methods it can cause skin irritation so it is better to start off slowly.
Sugaring is similar to waxing and you should have it done by a professional or be trained how to do it by a professional. It uses ingredients such as sugar, lemon, and honey to pull the hair out by the root.
Laser hair removal in the pubic region has gained more popularity. It is expensive and has to be done by a professional. They use a laser to zap the hair follicle with heat which will help stop new hair from growing. This type of hair removal is not always permanent and does require several sessions over time.
Whichever method of hair removal you choose, make sure to test it out on a small area of your skin first. Everyone’s skin reacts differently to different types of hair removal. Finding the method that works best for you may take some trial and error. With almost any type of hair removal method, there are going to be possible risks such as skin irritation, redness, inflammation, ingrown hairs, rashes, and infection. If you are not confident doing your own hair removal, go to a professional.
