Does Shaving Your Bikini Lines Drive You Bonkers?
By Bodworx International
Considering the daring styles of swimwear many people, both male and female, are wearing today, no doubt keeping bikini lines in check is an important issue.
Even for those of us who don't wear the more daring styles, making sure pubic hairs are not public hairs is a concern when getting ready for the pool or beach.
It's not a simple matter of tucking your pubic hairs inside the legs of your suit, because they're bound to escape. So it becomes a question of how best to remove the hairs at the bikini lines all together.
While many people may elect to use a depilatory lotion/cream or do a bikini wax at home or at a salon, shaving bikini lines is still the method most often used.
Now you may be thinking that the reason some people choose depilatories or waxing over shaving their bikini lines is because these alternative methods to shaving don't irritate this sensitive skin. Truth is - That's not the truth. At least not for most people.
If you speak with people who use a depilatory, (and they're honest), they'll tell you:
1) They're messy
2) They smell pretty bad
3) They're inconvenient - Because you have to wait for them to work, you have to be somewhere to be able to wash them off and they don't always completely work, leaving you with patches of hair
And, most importantly -
4) The harsh chemicals more often than not leave your skin looking red and feeling raw, as if it's just been burned, which basically it has...
And if you speak with people who choose waxing, (and they're honest), they'll tell you:
1) It's messy
2) It smells pretty bad
3) It's inconvenient - Because you have to wait for it to work, you have to be somewhere to be able to wash off the residue, it doesn't always completely work with the first application so you have to do it again, and oh yes - IT HURTS! Even if you have it done at a salon, all of the above applies
And, most importantly -
4) The harsh chemicals more often than not leave your skin looking red and feeling raw, as if every hair has just been yanked out, which basically they have...
So - We're back to shaving bikini lines.
The bad news is that most people who are shaving their bikini lines basically just grab a wet razor and have at it. So it's no wonder that their skin looks red and feels raw, as if it's just been scraped, which basically it has...
And even worse - Because bikini lines are areas that maintain a good deal of moisture and receive a great deal of friction, ingrown hairs become a major problem.
The good news is, anyone can learn that there's a right way of shaving pubic hairs from the bikini lines and, perhaps even more important, that there is a much better tool than a wet razor for shaving this sensitive area.
Shaving your bikini lines doesn't have to drive you bonkers!
All you need to do now is your own research about how to safely shave your bikini lines along with using a shaving device that's better designed for bikini lines.
