Whether or not they care to admit it, women pay attention to the state of their grooming in the nether regions. There have been true and tried methods to get the desired look. Some are definitely more painful than others.
There are plenty of options to landscape there, be it waxing, shaving, tweezing or trimming. The point is how much money, time, and effort are you willing to put yourself through to get the hair between the legs look trimmed or be gone for weeks at a time.
Here are the most popular techniques to remove pubic hair. It’s important to remember that the skin in the pubic area is very delicate and sensitive. Whatever procedure you use, if not done properly or using dirty tools can cause bacterial infections, constant burning, and even itching. Make sure you are careful if doing it at home and keep an eye open for spas that look like their tools are not new.
As much as you want to go au naturel, it's hard to do so on certain occasions like having to wear a bikini to the beach.
If you like going to a professional for your landscaping needs, it can get costly very quickly. There are products in the market that can help you achieve the same results as a salon at a fraction of the cost.
Just like a men's shaver for a close cut, women also have electric shavers.
The floating heads on the shaver allow it to trace the contours of your body closely. Some allow for wet and dry use.
Razors are the probably the cheapest option around.
Using non-scented soap in the area and shaving afterwards is essentially pain free. The only problem is that the pubic hair will begin to grow and show within two days of shaving. It can also get quite itchy down there so make sure you use a perfume-free lotion to calm the skin.
There is no way about it, waxing hurts. A lot!
Waxing strips are pre-made strips very similar to the hot strips in the salon. The method is the same, press firmly on the hairy area and pull firmly.
Tweezing is not only reserved for pulling eyebrow hair or even above the lip line.
You can pull from the root of the hair using tweezers. It will take time and hurt more and more as you make your way further down in the pubic area. Because you are pulling at the root, the hair won’t grow back for quite a while. Another benefit, the hair gets thinner and thinner using this method.
Epilators are very effective but they can be painful.
An epilator has tiny tweezers that rotate and grab hairs from the roots with a single pass. Twenty to thirty hairs are removed at once. This can be very painful but you’ll have smooth skin for a couple of weeks and when it grows back it the hair will be thinner.
Shaving, waxing, and epilating is not for everyone so you have to find your happy place.
Are you willing to go through the pain of waxing or epilating for weeks of being hairless? Or do you care that you have to shave down there every couple of days? It’s all about personal preference.
